So you are saying that the leaders of the ID movement are wrong about what ID is ? That's a pretty odd perspective. They seem happy to include YEC (especially the YECs among them).
This is a very important point that I do not think a lot of people actually grasp. We have many IDers come to this forum and they vociferously deny that ID has anything to do with religion or creationism. How can this be if the leading advocates and the creators of ID clearly are very comfortable with the idea that it has religious roots. They are duping the people on the ground with one argument but when pressed in court and in the media they do not deny at all that it is a religious idea.
I have yet to hear of a prominent IDer disavow the creationists. Have any? Have any IDers presented actual scientific research? It is kind of hard to objectively study origins of species when you start with a position that the bible guides everything you do and believe.
If ID is not creationism in sheep's clothing, why have all the creationists flocked to it?
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
