"The problem is, as Joel put it so well, the ID movement isn't interested in
the real world. By that I mean, they must present a testable hypothesis,
which means they must tell the funding agency what they think happened in
the past. They can't get funding for telling the funding agency, "I don't
believe evolution happened, I don't know how life occurred, I don't know
how life changes/evolves, I don't know whether geology and paleontology are
correct or not, but I want lots of money to run experiments to confirm what
I don't know." As we say down here in Texas, 'That dawg won't hunt'."
Like I said, it would be nice if we could test this to see if you are right.
