New Scientist - poor article on Intelligent Design

I have read New Scientist on-off since I was doing O-levels, so was interested to see what they would write about Intelligent Design. However, having read the article (there is a link to it on William Dembski's blogsite listed below), I have to say that I thought it was poor - at best the journalists uncritically presented out of date argumentation from opponents; at worst the writers and editors have used their position to deliberately misrepresent and undermine ID.

I would strongly encourage any New Scientist readers who read the article and who come here for comment to at least read William Dembski's comments. If I get the chance, I'll highlight some of the weaker points in future posts.

PS See above.
