      My Additional Comments:

      I am not dismissing ID as "irrational". I simply
      recognize it as a "new and improved" edition of
      the "watchmaker" analogy.

      If that's not the ID "argument" implied by Mike
      Keas, then maybe someone will enlighten me as to
      what the ID "argument" is.

      You don't need to fuss over ribosomes to come up
      with that analogy. I doubt anybody here is really
      qualified to fuss over ribosomes.

      MGT2 certainly isn't!
