That's a good find, Star Stuff.  I wonder if Godexists would bother reading it?

Never heard of Betteridge's law - thanks jdawg70.  Provides some context for todays excuse for journalism (or lack of it).

The destruction of ID is pretty well done in the article. In theory then, we should come back to each IDer and point them to the link. After that, the IDer will become a reasonable human being.

However, IDers are at three levels: the celebrity IDers who make money out of it; the keen acolytes who have swallowed everything hook, line and sinker[1], and those who are simply too dim to understand and are, irredeemable.
 1. compare with conspiracy theorists
