Let's imagine that the scientific establishment adopts ID and pushes for it to be taught, with the proviso that the designer is a superintelligent alien race (you could even make a very speculative case for this by using that meteorite that was claimed to show signs of bacterial life some years back). Would the DI and other organisations have to accept this, or would they suddenly start backpedalling frantically?

"There are a lot of things I have concluded to be wrong, without studying them in-depth. Evolution is one of them. The fact that I don't know that much about it does not bother me in the least."
