Hi Kevin

Please note that I did not attack you one tiny little bit whatsoever.  And I won't do such a thing unless provoked.

Now, I had some really nice friendly touchy feely questions about this project you are working on, and so does everyone else.  I can wait my turn.

But since you are running around pushing this idea of 'Intelligent Design', regardless of what we know about your fellow travelers, I am asking you 'What Is Design?'  How is beaver dam design equivalent to designing bacterial flagella?  How is SETI comparable to designing blood clots?  How is Colonel Custard, in the Drawing Room, with an icicle dagger IN ANY WAY comparable to The Privileged Planet?  

If irreducible complexity is a hallmark of design, does this mean that the designer is neither irreducible, nor complex?  Doesn't that mean that God is rather ordinary and by Dembski's criterion explainable by recourse to regularity, ie natural law?  

Do you really believe all this stuff, or is it just a handy hook for some publicity?
