Is there any IDer left over there who is even slightly sane?

I have a theory* on this subject. Those individuals who are slightly sane, moderately sensible or vaguely rational are unsuited to long term survival as IDers.

At any given time, through random variations, individuals not capable of swallowing immense loads of bullshit might appear in the population, but they are quickly eliminated by their limited tolerance for this product. Those with the greatest tolerance (not coincidentally, also the greatest producers) remain in the population indefinitely. In summary the character of the population is the result of a blind arithmetic sorting process... what one might term a kind of natural selection.

* which is mine, this theory that it is.
