Rats … my favorite topic comes up on one of the few days I’m not watching the blogs. My comment is way near the bottom of that thread.  My key point there:

Non-IDist engineers should challenge IDist/creationist engineers on their hypocrisy. (That's what I do.)

I actively challenge the IDists regarding the relationships between ID and Engineering. Here's a recent example at UD:

(My comments start about a third of the way down and then pick up again at the end.)

I wish more engineers would do this, but I understand why they don’t. The question “Why are so many engineers involved in ID/Creationism?’ is the flip side of the question “Why are so few engineers actively opposing ID/Creationism?” A simple answer to that question is “Engineering is not specifically targeted in the Wedge Document.”
