I know I've mentioned this before, but Ian Musgrave issued a similar challenge to evolution deniers to detect human design in a set of genetic sequences, some of which had been synthetically produced by Craig Venter's lab. This interesting and amusing thing was that the design assertionists, presented with this excellent opportunity to demonstrate the practical utility of their "theories", instead merely spent their time whining about how unfair the challenge was. Meanwhile, the "evolutionists" of Panda's Thumb solved the question easily without using any ID techniques whatsoever.
