What the anti-ID group is questioning is whether the pro-ID group...

If I may pick a nit here...

I clearly an NOT in the "pro-ID group", but I take issue with being called "anti-ID". I'm not. I'm anti-pseudoscience. If ID can present a coherent hypothesis that explains all the data, and further can make testable (and subsequently verified) predictions, then I will accept it as worthy of consideration as science.

However, to-date all they have is an appeal to incredulity ("How can the flagellum NOT have been the result of design?!") and appeal to authority ("It says so right here in the Bible"). Neither of those things cut it with me (or any other scientist).

Evolution has met the aforementioned criteria, and so is a part of science.
