The thing that ID creationists don't understand is that "intelligent design" - even if it were true - cannot be seen as a scientific explanation, only a philosophical explanation. This is because science deals with proximate causes whereas philosophy/theology concerns itself with ultimate causes. When Paley delivered his watchmaker argument, he never intended it to be a scientific explanation, only a religious argument.
