It just dawned on me that ID is dead.

Dembski is off all radar. áHe doesn't even show up in the search box at South Carolina bible college or whatever. The last post on the Design Inference is a year old.

Meyer's book went up like a firework and came down with the stick. á

Most of the static websites are moribund. áUD has banned virtually all dissenters. áThe few brave enough to wander over to TSZ bail out after a couple of rounds. áThe biologic institute inflates its "selected publications" with publications that have nothing to do with the biologic institute and seems to be doing no more than pretending to produce output.

Bio-Complexity is moribund.

Behe doesn't seem to have much to say.

The big guys won't come out to debate. áThe small ones mostly won't leave heavily censored sites. áEven the UD newsdesk peddles 6 year old stories as "news".

And all the threads are about religion. áOr tossing coins.

I don't know why I hadn't seen it before.

It's dead.

As a scientific hypothesis, intelligent design creationism is most certainly dead. áIn fact, it was stillborn. áAfter Dover, it was clear that ID is nothing more than an attempt to get around constitutional prohibitions against the establishment of religion in the US.

As a political and cultural movement, however, intelligent design creationism unfortunately lives on, and will do so in every school district that includes a fundamentalist church. áIt doesn't matter to creationists of any variety whether or not ID is science or if science supports their sectarian views, they will continue to make those irrational, repeatedly disproven claims in an attempt to force their religion into public schools.

Creationists, including the intelligent design variety, lie. áThey are not interested in truth because they already have TRUTH. áThey want the power to impose that on everyone else.

ID will be around for a while as a business model.  There still seem to be a lot of people who want sciency jargon with their apologetics and conspiracy theories.
