"Evolution" isn't a fair comparison term because the word is used in so many non-biological contexts.

Let's see how "Intelligent Design" does against two of its intellectual equals, which can be represented by quite unambiguous search terms**:

I must admit, I didn't expect this result.  But it does make sense.

**Disclaimer:  I will not be held responsible for the psychological effects resulting from anyone searching these terms and viewing the results.

Yeah, well it's still not fair.  The flatline that is ID has not yet properly reflected the Michael Medved Bounce.  Once everybody knows Sasquatch Man Medford is "down wit da DI", that line will spike like Dembski seeing Denyse in the shower.

It's hard to tell from the graph but I'm not sure that the "Intelligent design" and "Michael Medved" results added together would even be as popular as either goatse or tubgirl.

I tried the search just for laughs, assuming that ID would of course be searched more often than the two most disgusting images on the intertubes, but no.  In terms of popularity, this is kind of like a restaurant that claims its food is delicious and extremely popular, when in fact the guy in the sidewalk vending cart out front is pulling down twice as much revenue selling feces-dipped roadkill-on-a-stick.
