I must be on double secret moderation. This comment of mine never showed up on UD's "Computers vs Darwinism" thread:

Remember the diameter, materials, meshing of parts, etc. in this Darwinian scenario have no idea what will be required later. - steve petermann

Well, like ribczynski said, IDists make this mistake all of the time. Under the evolutionary model, a flagellum is not what is required; the only thing required is survival and reproduction.

Steve spends several paragraphs telling us how difficult the special creation of a flagellum is. So what model does he advocate? Special creation!

Invoking intelligent design in science is like invoking gremlins in engineering. [after Mark Isaak.]
All models are wrong, some models are useful. - George E. P. Box
