It would make our lives slightly easier (Although possibly less entertaining) if ID people just folded back into Creationism at large, instead of trying to insist upon their own separate identity.  
Here in the UK< as I have mentioned before, our home grown creationists have stolen irreducible complexity amongst other things, in order to bolster their case for slipping creationism into the science classroom.  Its looking more like only a matter of time before ID becomes a small subset of creationism.

It has never been anything else... although the comedy value of ID has been better than creationism at large. Take creationism, dress it up in a clown suit and viola! ID.

Oh yes, I don't want to give the impression it was anything but a seb set of creationism- its just that I think overall it did quite a good job, PR wise, of selling itself as the new washes whiter than white, with added science, form of anti-evolution stupidity.
Then when it burns out everyone sees it for what it is and what it has always been.

I agree that the comedy value will be lost though.  It would be fun watching DS get absorbed slowly into the creationist structure.  Or maybe he'll set out on his own like JAD.

Well, recalling the antics of DS trying to keep the religious at UD from saying the Big G word.... perhaps they will yet have their revenge and ban him... eye for an eye, y'know...

Guys, I am willing to bet that Davescot will post a "the sound of a radiometric dating method exploding" post within the next few months.

It's an intuition I have. :D

Oi!  As a former violist, I object!

Although I never did play the viola in a clown suit.  It only ever sounded like it.

Did Behe happen to cut any good farts during his presentation?  I wonder if anyone recorded them for a future video.

Alas, neither will EVER happen, because DS doesn't give a rat's ass about any of the ideas he promulgates over at UD.

(BTW, did you know that the prototype rat's ass was envisioned at the moment of frontloading?)

LOL Can't find it now but

That brings to mind the Gary Larsen cartoon showing God just having finished building planet Earth, holding a salt shaker with the word "Jerks" written on it. God is thinking "Just to make it interesting..."
