We all know that in all matters of mere opinion that man is insane... just as insane as we are... we know exactly where to put our finger upon his insanity:
It is where his opinion differs from ours....
All Democrats are insane, but not one of them knows it. None but the Republicans.
All the Republicans are insane, but only the Democrats can perceive it.
The rule is perfect: In all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.
Anybody that believes that either side of the debate is on this side of science, truth, or even Charles Darwin, is lying to themselves, because politics is what controls this debate, and honest scientists need to be made aware of this, because the distinction is made subtle by the popular trendiness of cutting-edge theory.
I would define a "Neo-Darwinist" as someone that allows their personal ideological bias to influence their scientific mind to the point that they automatically look for rationale that will downplay the significance of evidence, rather than to look for some good first principle for why the implication for anthropic preference might be true. I use the term much in the same way that Lynn Margulis did, as I too consider myself to be a "Darwinist", unlike those "neo-darwinian bullies".
I would define an "IDist" in the same manner, because members of both extremes are equally motivated to perceive the world via the distorted lens of politics, and either would rather die than to budge one inch in the other's direction, in spite of whatever reality may be smacking them upside the head.
Neo-Darwinists will deny this, because they pretend that they are the ones that are in-line with science, ("Lynn just has a beef because we won't completely buy her theory"). That's because they lean-on unproven runaway cutting-edge theoretical speculation for support for their runaway "copernican" belief system, especially when it comes to 'explaining away' cosmological phenomenon that any normal person would be curious about. I'll get into that more in the future, this fact is actually starting to pop-up on IDists websites and in news articles... so it won't be too long before they can't get away it anymore.
