Except for the sale of two books, what has he gained? A charlatan acts out for gain. No gains have come to Behe, unless you count hate mail and verbal abuse. No, his motives are more likely a penchant for objective science, as are mine.

ID and 'religion' are mutually exclusive, since one is evidence based and the other faith based. The only 'religionists' who have opted for ID have been those pushing religion within science and academia, a distinct minority. It seems that the best ID critics can do is use them for target practice.
