Slim Pickins

"One of the more frequent questions people ask about intelligent design is whether any scientists actually support ID theory," writes Anika Smith on the Discovery Institute's Evolution News and Views blog.

"There are many notable biologists, biochemists, physicists, and astronomers who support intelligent design, and their work continues to develop the young scientific theory," asserts Smith.

However, like the vast ocean of evidence for intelligent design, where much is promised but nothing enumerated, Smith's list is both short and suspect.

Smith names three of the usual suspects: Michael Behe and Scott Minich -- the dynamic duo at the Dover trial -- and Guillermo Gonzalez, late of Iowa State University.

A fourth name is relatively new, Wolf-Ekkehard Lönnig, a German geneticist who is reportedly a Jehovah's Witness and garden variety creationist.
