Roughly half are not. Half are. What we do have is a muzzle on the ID crowd that as soon as you mention it you are labeled as religious and tossed out of the party.

Your URL states 50 scientists. 50 out of several hundred thousand, that isn't much of a percentage, nowhere near the 50% you state.

The evolutionary model is one depressing reality.

Except at least evolution has evidence whereas creation/ID doesn't.
As for intelligent design, if there is a designer he/she/it is totally inept.

from WIRED Aug 2009 pg 026 writes:

10 WORST Evolutionary Designs

1) Sea Mammal Blowhole. Any animal that spends appreciable time in the ocean should be able to extract oxygen from the water via gills.Enlarging the lungs and moving a nostril to the back of the head is a poor work-around.

There a 9 others listed which are just as inept.

If there was a designer he is totally inept as per number 7 Human stomach. Can't digest cellulose which makes up an appreciable part of the human diet. Since cellulose makes up a large parts of plants which are eaten by many animal species and the others eat animals which somewhere back in the food chain, was a plant eater yet only termites have the capability to digest cellulose do to the bacteria in their stomachs that digest the cellulose. Good design would have all animals capable of cellulose digestion.

My point is not necessarily that these faults or shortcomings are just simply something that an intelligent designer should have done something about, on the other hand the whale blowhole is there, do the evolution of whales from artiodactylous ungulates. What I'm saying as to design, the designs don't necessarily promote the idea of the using of intelligence.
