You don't place enough stock on Dover. That was ID's chance to prove itself. It failed dismally. All it could prove was that (a) it was just creationism in a cheap suit and (b) that its star - Behe - was a liar and incompetent.You place too much stock on Dover. This is allowing the court room of law to arbitrate where experimentation and the laboratory should be doing the talking. A scientifically illiterate judge Jones should not be a deciding factor in science. Laugh is the right phrase.
You are, however, right in that a judge should not be a deciding factor in science. The deciding factor in science is scientists - who long ago concluded that ID was not science.
But you have me intrigued - can you name some of the "experimentation and laboratory" work the IDers have done?
