Hello everybody!

After a zoology class last week, I saw a poster on the wall advertising a lecture given by William Dembski at my university in a week. The lecture includes a Q&A session towards the end, and I'd like to participate. I'm not terribly familiar with Dr. Dembski's work - I've never read any of his books or essays - but I do know he's a mathematician, theologian, and major proponent of intelligent design.

I don't want to be a smartass to him or anything stupid - I know he's a very intelligent man who probably knows more than I ever will. But I don't want to kiss his ass, either - I want a tough question. For instance, I've heard that there has never been a peer-reviewed, scientific paper describing intelligent design. And I don't understand if IDists are advocating supernaturalism in science or not - I assumed that science was wholly naturalistic. Maybe this will be an opportunity to learn something about intelligent design from one of it's most formidable advocates.

So what do you think I should ask? Anyone out there who's more familiar with his work and wants to ask him something? Thanks for any input!
