However, you might pinch a piece of code from an unrelated project to stop reinventing the wheel.

So ID would predict many exceptions to common descent ...


This is what happens when humans engineer living things, which  I think is the most convincing argument against ID. Why do the only known designers routinely violate common descent, and why does the Designer stick to the constraints imposed by common descent.

You make a very good point. It's a good counter to the analogies made by IDists.
