RE: Harvard to investigate origin of life
I suspect you'll find the strongest proponents of ID are the same people that were getting a good peer kicking over neo-Eugenics during the last "gee I sound intelligent using sciency words" fashion statement.
Religion is all about politics. Can't walk in the front door, assault from the flanks but never give up because it's all about who was right and who was wrong.
The smarter, democratically devoted religious rediscover this historical role as one of philosophy and hey, whatever toots your horn.
The methodology used to support ID is identical to creationism. Win by default. Firstly this does not support the contention. Secondly those proponents couldn't falsify recognised and empirically supported scientific theorum then, and they can't now.
An argument against "science" as a homogenous body is tantamount to an argument against oxygen. Call it the phlogiston if you want but its properties are those of what has been named "oxygen."
And personally I resent the prospect of having to deal with entire new generations of complete morons who think there's brownie points in thinking emotionally rather than caring to genuinely understand what the hell they're even talking about first.
