Here's the list of "myths" along with what Mellisa Travis has to say about them.
MYTH #1: Intelligent Design (ID) is just a fancy name for Creationism.FACT: Modern Intelligent Design Creationism evolved from the creationist movement in the 1980s as was proven conclusively in the Dover trial. Intelligent Design Creationism is not a scientific theory. Instead, its a hodgepodge of criticisms of evolution and of scientists and materialism. Just look at the posts on Evolution News & Views (sic) to see what it's all about. Count the number of posts promoting a "scientific" view of Intelligent Design Creationism as opposed to disjointed helter-skelter criticisms of evolution that often contradict each other.
The true story: Intelligent Design theory is not a form of, nor is it synonymous with “creationism.” Rather, it is an over-arching scientific theory that disputes wholly naturalistic/materialistic accounts of the origin of the universe and the origin of life. As such it is an indispensable ally for those who espouse various creation models. ID makes NO CLAIM about the age of the earth.
There's no "over-arching" scientific theory in sight.
MYTH #2: ID has been dis-proven by the fossil record, which supports common descent.FACT: It's true that this is a myth but as far as I know there's nobody who believes that myth. Intelligent Design Creationism is compatible with common descent taking place over 4.5 billion years of Earth's history and it's also compatible with an instantaneous creation of all species less that 10,000 years ago. They would make it compatible with the kitchen sink if there was a religious sect of kitchen sink believers that needed to be brought under the big tent.
The true story: ID does not rule out the theory of common descent, nor does it support it. It is true that some advocates of ID also doubt the integrity of the theory of common descent, but that question is completely separate from ID theory, strictly speaking. One of the leading scientists in the ID movement, biochemist Michael Behe, Ph.D., is comfortable with the theory of common descent. Other ID scientists are more skeptical of common descent, such as biologist Jonathan Wells, Ph.D.
MYTH #3: ID claims that the “intelligent agent” had to supernaturally intervene in natural history over and over again.Fact:The intelligent designer is supposed to have created various irreducibly complex structures, such as bacterial flagella and the vertebrate immune system. It's true that Intelligent Design Creationism encompasses the idea that all species were created at the same time in the recent past. I guess this isn't an example of an "interventionist" god. On the other hand, for those IDiots who believe in common descent, the only logical conclusion from their writings is that they believe in an interventionist god who made things appear at different times over the past several billion years.
The true story: ID’s claim is much more modest. ID simply states that there are characteristics of the universe and of living systems that are BEST EXPLAINED by a designing intelligence. ID is not “interventionist” as many theistic evolutionists (and atheistic evolutionists) like to claim. The idea of a designing intelligence steadily and purposefully guiding the development of life at the sub-atomic level is compatible with ID, but that particular scenario is not required by ID, either.
MYTH #4: ID uses a disguised form of the “God of the gaps” fallacy.FACT: Yeah, that's pretty much what they say. This isn't a myth.
The true story: ID does not say “We don’t yet know how life emerged from non-life, therefore an intelligence must have done it.”
MYTH #5: ID research has not produced peer-reviewed literature.FACT: We could quibble about how many of those papers actually mention Intelligent Design Creationism and promote the "scientific" theory of Intelligent Design Creationism but what's the point? The basic fact is that the IDiots have not made any significant impact on the consensus views of scientists and their presence in the scientific literature is barely detectable.
The true story: There are more than 50 peer-reviewed papers that have come out of ID research. A list has been compiled HERE. An important article on this topic can be found HERE.
