What is funny* is that, while they all jumped into Bilbo's thread about "Why we need critics" to say "No we don't"; they can't wait to gang up and shout down any new critic that appears.  They ignore any possible ID "debate" that might be had amongst themselves.  See poor Techne as an example in the blind cave fish thread.  He is mentioned by numbdumbass in the OP, and he posts an interesting* comment:            
From a teleological perspective this study just again confirms the presence of intrinsic finality/natural ends/natural inclinations or intrinsic natural ends/inclinations in nature, this time specifically related to the intrinsic finality of genomes naturally inclined to produce eyes and sight. While they have the potential to produce eyes and sight, this might not be always actualized, but sometimes when it is, it might be functionally relevant to the fitness of the organism.

None of the IDers take notice - they are too busy challenging posts from people whose opinions they don't value.  Maybe after the pounding of the ban hammer has subsided, they will get around to some serious ID discussion.

* Funny/interesting here meaning typical ID dumbfuckery.
