It's Trojan horses all the way down

Critics of intelligent design often complain about the lack of scientific research, claiming that ID is just a Trojan horse to get creationism taught in schools. Celeste Biever from New Scientist does some digging (no going undercover this time, though) and discovered the Biological Institute, where ID-friendly researchers are doing research. So she's happy that ID supporters are finally getting their act together and producing some of the results critics have been asking for for years, right?

Wrong. To Celeste Biever, this is just more evidence that ID supporters are out to get Adam and Eve into junior's textbook:

The message is clear. If ID supporters can bolster their case by citing more experimental research, another judge at some future date might conclude that ID does qualify as science, and is therefore a legitimate topic for discussion in American science classrooms. This is precisely the kind of scientific respectability that research at the Biologic Institute is attempting to provide.
