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.
