Semi-shameless plug - Latest issue of Skeptic
The new issue of Skeptic (Vol 11 No. 4 2005) has a couple of excellent full-length articles that deal with "intelligent design" creationism. In addition, there is a News piece that I contributed which discusses the closing night lectures of Michael Behe and William Dembski at last year's Darwin, Design, and Democracy conference in Albuquerque (yes, I know that was almost 11 months ago, but if you're familiar with "design theory," you know the substance of the arguments seldom changes, while the packaging is continually redesigned).
But although I'd like everyone to read my piece, I really want you to pick up the magazine for Mark Perakh's article entitled "The Dream World of William Dembski's Creationism." Perakh is an important ID critic, not because he turns a great phrase but because he addresses the specifics of many of the mathematical, probabilistic, and information theoretical claims of ID "theorists" that can be interminably obscurant.
Perakh demystifies much of the nonsense, in fact showing often that it serves little more purpose than to mystify, and corrects errors of application and execution of methodology in a way that is accessible to the reader who is not strong in the aforementioned disciplines. In fact if you have the opportunity, I would reccommend reading his "Unintelligent Design," one of the best ID debunking books I've read.
Back to Skeptic, make sure to read Robert Weitzel's dissection of the issues surrounding the publication of Meyer's paper in the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. It is called "Creationism's Holy Grail" and directly follows Perakh's article.
There is plenty of other good stuff in the magazine as well, including a tribute to Ernst Mayr. Check it out if you get the chance.
