Intelligent Design rant:

Whatever: “The only value to this whole thing so far is that it got Behe to admit that in order to get ID to work, you have to cheat — you have to make words mean different things than what they mean. You know, the science community already has a word for the new, more lax definition of ‘theory’ Behe wishes to promote: it’s called a hypothesis. Should Behe manage to get his way and change the definition of ‘theory,’ what becomes of the word ‘hypothesis’? Is it demoted? Discarded? Given a nice gold watch for its years of service to the scientific community and then taken behind the barn to be plugged with a shotgun? And if is merely demoted, then what will become of the phrase ‘drunken paranoid ramblings?’ That phrase has nowhere else to go.”
