MacNeill's last point there is the most interesting thing about the ID movement. Even if ID was correct, which it isn't, the behavior of the ID advocates wouldn't lead to success. Scientific revolutions succeed when the revolutionaries use the new ideas to solve old problems and advance research. The ID community isn't even trying to do this. Their journal sits there, defunct, while they make movies, gripe on the internet, write 'textbooks', and fly around collecting honoraria. (Enjoying Brazil, Paul?) And while some at the top know better, the footsoldiers of ID know so little about science that they don't see the glaring absence of research. Anyone who knows anything about science and how it changes can look at PCID for about 15 seconds and understand that ID is a con game.
