Dennett on ID

This article is by far one of best summary articles I've seen on why ID has absolutely no scientific merit. I really like the comments about the "design" of the eye:

Brilliant as the design of the eye is, it betrays its origin with a tell-tale flaw: the retina is inside out. The nerve fibers that carry the signals from the eye's rods and cones (which sense light and color) lie on top of them, and have to plunge through a large hole in the retina to get to the brain, creating the blind spot. No intelligent designer would put such a clumsy arrangement in a camcorder, and this is just one of hundreds of accidents frozen in evolutionary history that confirm the mindlessness of the historical process.

Read the whole article - it clearly shows why people should ignore ID because of its true nature: it's a fraud.
