One of the things that keeps my sympathy for ID alive is the systematic failure of its critics to present the idea as ID's most noteworthy proponents do. Each and every time without fail ID gets presented as "The creationist claim that science can show God zapped the bacterial flagellum magically and that science can prove this" or permutations thereof. Always, always there is this shoe-horning of 'creationist' or 'supernatural' or 'miracle' into the claim, or at the very least something like 'a denial that evolution ever takes place'.
Call ID wrong. Call it fatally flawed. But when critics are so petrified of so much as honestly portraying the actual claims made by ID proponents, I find myself forced to defend them again and again.
