An excellent article found on MSNBC describing why ID has no scientific leg to stand on.
There's an upcoming court test of ID in public education in Dover, Pennsylvania. There are two reasons why this should be an easy victory for science. First, as my first link points out, there are no good scientific reasons to teach ID. The second is that the only remaining reason to teach ID in science class is religious. Indeed, it appears that the ID textbook proposed by Dover used the word Creation instead of Intelligent Design in its draft form, right up until printing time. Oops!
