And Dembski was prattling on about the legal savvy of these cats.

Dembski's contribution to Intelligent Design theory reminds me of my brother's conversations with girls. He used to "prove" that they were so unlikely it was a miracle they existed. Or maybe that they might *poof* out of existence at any moment. (I think the next logical step was that they might as well enjoy themselves while they could.)

Wesley Elsberry noted the strategy: ignore the reality or evidence that's in front of you and concentrate on a theoretical construct. And I've named it the Dembski Dodge for its most familiar practitioner.
