Can you rationally remain an atheist if the flagellum was intelligently designed?Well, I can't speak for anyone else, but I would think the answer is obvious.If you can convince me that the flagellum was intelligently designed by a god, then I am no longer an atheist, more or less by definition.If you convince me that the flagellum was intelligently designed by some race of aliens, then I would probably still be an atheist. Unless, of course, those aliens had some convincing evidence for god.Now, if the first holds true, then ID is religion.If the second holds true, then it deals with the physical universe, which is not off-limits to scientific inquiry. So get out there and find me some evidence.
