How Important Was Pandas?

In the comments section, one of our critics is arguing that the book Of Pandas And People (of Dover fame) demonstrates that Creationism and Intelligent Design are the same thing, meaning, I suppose, that all ID proponents are Creationists.

I have been arguing about this topic on the Internet for years. For example, over at the ARN forum, I contributed 5000+ postings from 2000-2005. During all this time as I participated and watched, I can't recall a single case where an ID proponent held up Pandas as a source to support an argument or even cited some argument from it. It may have happened now and then, but it certainly was never a major factor as far as I can tell. The same was true on the ISCID's forum, Brainstorms, where I participated for about a year.

I maintain that this book has been largely irrelevant to the ID debate over the years. But maybe I am wrong. So I am curious and would like to ask some questions to our readers who consider themselves to be supportive of ID or sympathetic to ID.
