Does swimming in intelligent design creationism theory and materials cause brain rot?  Once you become a "design theorist" does your IQ turn to mush?  Does "design detection" stunt ones intellect and reasoning functions?

Evidence that IDC might be bad for your brain:

Someone can correct me, but I think in philosophy the ‘first’ cause is associated with the ‘final’ cause, which, if so means that the ‘mind’ does not begin to act until it sees the goal (’final’ cause) in sight. Purpose is a property of the mind, and when we see ‘purpose’ at work in biological systems, then we are encountering a ‘mind.’
