ID is nothing more than a tool being used to promote social reform.

Science was never IN the building.

But that's because of the big meanie scientists, according to GilGoddidit in the first comment on Dave's poke at GrannyTard.

The big problem is that the opposition won’t address the science, or allow the science to be addressed, no matter what.

Gil then posts a link to the Little Green Footballs thread where ID gets trashed, and the DI is labeled the "Dishonesty Institute".

Don't look now, Gil, but I can't imagine that even one of the commenters at LGF is a scientist, so how does that support your argument that the science of ID is not let into the discussion?

Actually, we did address the science, or lack of science, in ID when we wrote "Why Intelligent Design Fails." We went out of our way to avoid any of the obvious facts that IDC is merely a religious ploy, and focus purely on their so-called science.

That is why my chapter was used to trash some of Mike Behe's BS in the Dover trial, forcing Behe to whine that ID would work in science fiction movies.
