There's something distinctly unnerving about a discussion going on about IQ when the main participants are O'Leary and Frosty. However, I spotted this by Denyse:  
A woman I know had one of her kids diagnosed as low IQ when the kid was three months old and simply walked out of the office, carrying the kid, and never bothered with those people again. A similar thing happened when that kid was about eleven. The same kid went on to have a great career. Go figure.

What's the bet the woman is Denyse's mother? [/cheap shot]

That's what's sad about this entire affair. I can only imagine the feeling of horror and hopelessness that people like Dembski and O'Leary feel at home in their bed, all by themselves, when they reflect on the fact that their greatest accomplishment in life is getting publicly made into fools on an obscure internet blog by a bunch of anonymous hooligans.

You forget that they are in the vanguard of a vibrant movement which, five short years from now*, will:

See intelligent design theory as an accepted alternative in the sciences and scientific research being done from the perspective of design theory.

See the beginning of the influence of design theory in spheres other than natural science.

See major new debates in education, life issues, legal and personal responsibility pushed to the front of the national agenda.
