| 10. You don’t know who provided the money to purchase 60 copies of Of Pandas And People for your school district, even though you stood up in church, asked for the money, took up a collection, and used it to buy the books.|
9. You don’t need to read any of the published peer-reviewed studies of the evolution of the blood-clotting cascade, because you know it’s irreducibly complex, and therefore there could never be any valid evidence that it could have evolved.
8. You know that, whatever else Judge Jones may have done during his judicial career, ruling against ID is enough to “out” him as an “activist judge.”
7. You deny that Judge Jones’s years of experience in evaluating the evidence qualifies him to assess the true significance of days of testimony by experts both pro- and anti-ID.
6. You believe that you yourself are qualified to assess the true significance of the evidence, based on your study of the pro-ID literature and the arguments you’ve learned for disputing evolution.
5. You reject evolution because you claim there’s not enough detailed evidence to support it.
4. You resent it when people ask for detailed explanations consistent with ID, because it’s not ID’s job to provide the same level of detail that evolutionary theory does. ID should still be regarded as being equal or superior to evolutionary explanations, though.
3. You think that ID is “testable” because Behe predicted that nobody would ever find a way that natural processes could produce IC. You do not think that ID was falsified when natural processes were found that did produce IC.
2. You blame ID critics for the fact that none of the millions of dollars donated to pro-ID organizations has ever resulted in any tangible research program.
And the number one sign you may be an ID Supporter:
1. You believe the question “Duh, isn’t it obvious?” carries as much scientific weight as any amount of objective, quantifiable, verifiable scientific evidence.
