Yes, ID has a natural home in the engineering sciences. Engineering is about designing things so that they work.

And ID is not. Last I heard, ID is about detecting the complement of chance and regularity.

Engineers donít do what IDists do, and IDists donít do what engineers do.

Yes, scientists and engineers are model-builders, not philosophers.

How is he going to find a home for ID in engineering, if he's going to hide from the engineers?
