Why intelligent design is stupid

Max Power is full of good stuff today about the intellectual dishonesty and outright ignorance surrounding intelligent design. See here, here, and here for Max's devastating critiques.

It's important to note, as Max does, that the so-called debate over intelligent design is not about science but about a political agenda. Proponents of ID like Phillip E. Johnson opposed evolution for a long time before Michael Behe first published his book about "irreducible complexity" in 1996. ID is just the latest stick they've grabbed onto in their attempt to beat back evolution.
