|I notice you didn't comment on the 'no data' statement. Or the 'Demski says ID is religous' statement. Why is that?|
(1) you may not know what 'data' is or how much that term can cover, and
(2) Dembski never said that "ID is religious." He has not retracted his claim that ID is a scientific hypothesis.
I know plenty well what data is. Let's not get into a mud slinging contest here. You don't know me, I don't know you... don't go there OK?
As far as number 2...

belief in God] and making it a scientific and
academic enterprise. We are removing the most
important cultural roadblock to accepting the role
of God as creator."

Fingerprints of a Creator, The LA Times, 3/25/2001.
|"The job of apologetics is to clear the ground, to|
clear obstacles that prevent people from coming
to the knowledge of Christ," Dembski said. "And if
there’s anything that I think has blocked the
growth of Christ [and] the free reign of the Spirit
and people accepting the Scripture and Jesus
Christ, it is the Darwinian naturalistic view.... It’s
important that we understand the world. God has
created it; Jesus is incarnate in the world."

Christ out of the picture must be seen as

|“Baylor's Mr. Dembski also has little interest in|
publicizing his research through traditional means.
“I've just gotten kind of blasé about submitting
things to journals where you often wait two years
to get things into print," he says. "And I find I can
actually get the turnaround faster by writing a
book and getting the ideas expressed there. My
books sell well. I get a royalty. And the material
gets read more.””

The first one is Johnson, but he's a founder of ID as well.
The last one is just a bonus to show you what Dembski's real purpose is... money. And where his interest is not... doing any research to provide evidence that supports his opinion.
Ignored by those who can't provide evidence for their claims.
