I thought this quote from the column was quite appropriate and describes the ID movement in a concise and accurate way:
This is something that never seems settled in the ID movement, where is the designer inserting himself? At the beginning of time? At the beginning of life? At the Cambrian explosion? At the creation of human beings? Everywhere along the path? Is he still inserting himself? None of this, of course, is explained or answered in any talk. This talk at best can be seen inserting the designer at the beginning, defining the fundamental and natural laws. They try to escape this trap by saying that making things designed for an observer means the designer planned observers but I am not convinced that logic follows.
