Says Sal:    
Even more curious was a somewhat ID-friendly essay in the book by renowned origin-of-life researcher, Harold Morowitz.

More curious still is that Sal failed to notice or failed to mention that the authors intentionally selected essays that represent various and contradictory viewpoints.  For example, they included John Searle's classic essay on the Chinese Room, and then Hofstadter proceeded to debunk it quite thoroughly.

And even more curious than that is the fact that the essay in question doesn't support ID.  At most it can be viewed as supporting mind/body dualism, and it doesn't really support that either.
