Give That Man a Star
Brian Warren is a self-described "government employee" in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He has some pithy things to say about ID in a Letter to the Editor that are worth repeating:
ID's only research agenda is to attempt to undermine the teaching of evolutionary theory by distorting both the quantity and substance of the evidence that it explains; it doesn't generate new avenues of research, and in the end the answer to any question is: "We don't know, so stop trying to find out and insert God here."
In philosophical terms, ID is an idea that has infinite explanatory power but zero information content.
