Im afraid Uthan wont be here to comment again.

The offending comment is gone, so I've no idea what he did.  But this is quite an honour.  Bannination by the witch, not just the flying monkey.

I saw it. Uthan's comment was something to the effect that Google Scholar had over 2 million hits on evolution and only 14 thousand for intelligent design.  An interesting comparison made more interesting by someone pointing out the danger of assuming Google hits equate to legitimacy.
Google hits has nothing to do with the legitimacy of a science. Consider that Time Cube has approximately 75,000 google results.

It's natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it. We live in a democracy, which means we should treat every theory equally. - Steven Colbert, I Am America (and So Can You!)
