So Dr Dembski, what is the basic function of a flagella? Or a human arm? Indeed, upon what basis do you presuppose a primary purpose of a system?
Most IDers would answer that flagella, etc. help the species survive. Which raises the question of why non-biological entities, like rocks, are so much better at surviving than biological species.
