Now would be a good time to remind everyone that all the "intelligent design" people here were merely "creationists" a mere 3 or so years ago.
It would be fun to really comb the FR archives to pull up some of the creationist dribble from the very same people here who twaddle on about the "Designer" as if they've come to some sort of epiphany.
BS is BS no matter what you call it.

(I'm back... kinda.)
I would say ID fits in with creationsim, just as evolution fits in with atheism. So a creationist would feel much more comfortable with ID and the atheist would feel the same with evolution. Does that mean that evolution is atheism and ID is creationism? Of course not. Let's judge these ideas based on their merits alone, which many on here have done. To say that ID is disqualified because it is heralded by creationists, would mean that evolution is disqualified because it is heralded by atheists. To play the religion card, no matter which side you are on, is to traffic in straw men.
