I read The Structure of Scientific Revolutions about 5 years ago and of course forgot most of it. I like to review synopses of things I've read because it helps me retain them. Here's a good synopsis of the book.
Important excerpts for the ID discussion:
"A successful new paradigm permits predictions that are different from those derived from its predecessor."
and especially this part:
"What is the process by which a new candidate for paradigm replaces its predecessor? At the start, a new candidate for paradigm may have few supporters (and the motives of the supporters may be suspect). If the supporters are competent, they will improve the paradigm, explore its possibilities, and show what it would be like to belong to the community guided by it. For the paradigm destined to win, the number and strength of the persuasive arguments in its favour will increase. As more and more scientists are converted, exploration increases. The number of experiments, instruments, articles, and books based on the paradigm will multiply."
With no experiments, intstruments, or research articles, it's pretty easy to see that ID is not a paradigm destined to win.
