DaveScot forgets that ID explicitly excludes inquiring as to the motivations and intents of the designer, in fact ID explicitly states that the intent and motivations of the designer are immaterial to the question of design. He makes analogy to forensic sciences:
|Just imagine how useful it would be in criminal investigations if intent could be determined by a mathematical formula|
But forensic sciences only work because we know a significant amount about the motivations and intents of the actors under consideration.
Plus, I'm not the first to notice this, but are IDists now admitting that CSI is a subjective measure? Wasn't the whole point of the design inference that there was no subjective aspect to the "explanatory filter"?!
