I wonder if the intelligent design science labs and programs are hidden in tractor trailers, like the mobile biological weapons labs Bush told us about.   That would explain why none have ever been discovered.

I suspect the ID labs look an awful lot like this:



They're constantly on the go so they remain elusive and undetected.  They probably only stop for gas, potty breaks and road side chapels.  No telling the volume of scientific experiments they are conducting on an hourly basis.

I reckon the WMD are easier to find than the ID labs. WMDs at least had the possibility of existing, after all we have the reciepts from the 80s when we sold them to Saddam.

ID labs on the other hand have never existed. Outside of the fevered masturbatory fantasies of Dembski that is.

There was this mention in the NYTimes in August 2005 in the NYTimes in August, 2005:  
Quote
"If we've defined science such that it cannot get to the true answer, we've got a pretty lame definition of science," said Douglas D. Axe, a molecular biologist and the director of research at the Biologic Institute, a new research center in Seattle that looks at the organization of biological systems, including intelligent design issues. Dr. Axe said he had received "significant" financing from the Discovery Institute, but he declined to give any other details about the institute or its financing.
That's the only mention of the endeavor I can find anywhere on the web, though. Inquiring minds would really like to know if there's anything to know about this project.

Well, to give credit where credit is due, they did find chemical weapon artillery shells in Iraq left over from the war with Iran in the 1980s. Come to think of it, ID is sorta the empty shell left over from Edwards vs Aguillard.
