I agree with the general thesis here.  

I am currently reading "Faucoults Pendulum" by Umberto Eco.  Its a laugh, although you should only read it if you are some kind of intellectual.  Anyway, it reminds me of ID'ists, in so far as, like the conspiracy theorists, they start with a predetermined idea and look for linkages, but conveniently forget about actual testable evidence.  

What I would be interested in is how much CoP et al are aware they are acting like this?  Do they realise how silly they look trying to out expertise the experts?
