And this is why we haven't heard from Dembski for quite some time: He has written a new book.
Being as Communion: What is intelligent design?
UD was allowed to publish two short paragraphs complete with a definition of intelligent design in which the cat is immediately out of the bag.
Intelligent design is the study of patterns (hence “design”) in nature that give empirical evidence of resulting from real teleology (hence “intelligent”). In this definition, real 37[sic] teleology is not reducible to purely material processes.

In the publisher's description - link at UD - there is a helpful review of Rupert Sheldrake: Wikipedia describes him as an "an English author,[3] lecturer, and researcher in the field of parapsychology,[4] best known for advocating his "morphic resonance" concept."

Barry Arrington is a bitch.
