What I love is how the creationists (IDers are just
creationists in disguise) will pick out one particular
protein complex out of the tens of thousands known --
the flagellar motor - and say, "Look! This design
is irreducibly complex! This shows that proteins
were designed like machines, by an intelligent
designer!" instead of saying, "Look! Out of
9,999 [or whatever] protein complexes, only ONE of
them looks like something a designer would build!
This proves that there was no designer!"
