Itâ..s the same tired old argument that ID proponents have applied to archeology, SETI and other sciences. For example, archeologists routinely find artifacts that they pronounce as being designed â.. arrowheads and other tools, for example. Likewise, SETI scientists are scanning the skies for signals that they hope to determine come from extra-terrestrial intelligence. The argument goes that if archeology, SETI etc are science, then ID must also be science, because theyâ..re all doing the same thing â.. identifying design.

Superficially this may seem compelling, but when you examine what these scientists are doing compared with what IDists do, you realize the DI is wrong â.. the way scientists go about things is entirely different.
