Re: Bizarre logic.
Well, that's exactly where you miss it. I HAVE discovered God, whether you believe me or not. And I would venture to say that He is trying to reach out to you as well. If you don't believe me, or if you think I'm crazy, then why is it that as you read this, you get this feeling inside as if there must be something more? There's no way to really put it into words, but that's the way it is. Right now as you read this reply, God is trying to get you to listen to Him. How do I know? Because that's how God works, with small, subtle hints. He is just waiting for you to give Him a chance, but if you don't, He will not force you to. That is how much He loves you. He wants you to love Him not because you must, but because you want to love Him. I know, because I have experienced it.

Hell, we`ve got another holy roller on our hands.:D

Want to give me a reason that the Bible skips any mention of bacteria? All those prokaryotes must figure somwhere in God`s plan, especially the 2300 varieties we carry around with us. Doubly so for the beneficial species. Dunno about tapeworms, though.

ID or not ID, that is the question
The clincher for me against the hypothesis (has it moved that far?)of ID is the wonderful world of parasites. Whether designed by an Intelligent, Incompetent or any other 'I`s" you can think of, parasitism is so extreme, affecting all organic life (not just humans due to our fallen nature as our resident drama queen will insist), that either it has been a random, unguided process, or the result of design by the sickest puppy in the history of this world.
Parasite Rex--Carl Zimmer is a good starting point.
