Here is a couple of questions for the ID folks how does ID explain mitochondria in prokaryotic cells and how is that explanation superior the evolutionary explanation for mitochondria.

If evolution fails because of irreducible complexity, Isn't ID a bigger failure for not being able to explain complexity.

In other words, if ID states that there are biological processes and structures that are too complex to have evolved without intervention and that intervention is an intelligence, We, in science, are then confronted with attempting to describe an intelligence that is so profoundly complex that it can do all of the things that intelligent Design claims it is responsible for. Now calculating the probability that a irreducibly complex designer was either here all along or claiming that it came into existence using the known laws of physics, and cosmology, gives us a "designer" that is many orders of magnitude less likely than anything evolution can describe.
In other words, ID swallows its own hypothetical tail with an ever larger, statistically improbable, mouth.

Still waiting for Intelligent design adherents to explain testicles- location, lack of protection, incredibly high density of pain receptors- you get the idea.


while you ID folk are at it, you might explain emergent complexity, emergent computation,or any other emergent property and how it relates to ID
