David DeWolf: “[W]hen we go to Mt. Rushmore we immediately recognise that what ppear to be the faces of the Presidents are not the product fo the random forces of erosion and rockslide” (DeWolf 1999). However, it is not science but ID that is caught in this landslide. This is a faulty analogy, for it is missing the key (non-random) process of natural selection. Moreover, the positive inference that we make that someone carved the faces on the mountain is a perfectly natural one. The Mount Rushmore case is a particularly poor example of ID, if only because it is so unlike cases of biological complexity…

Ok...then what about this:
