ID defeated?

Intelligent Design is getting attention again. The more I think about it all, the more I think they just ought to present the evidence and drop the subject of why things are the way they are. Or is that all that biology is about these days? Natural selection is a perfectly reasonable explanation for adaptations, but it doesn't disprove my religion, which includes eternal progression of the human soul.

It still strains credibility with me to say that this is all rooted in a lucky coincidence. DNA is a very complex molecule and life is even more complex and elegant. It seems that a proper analysis of evolution depends on our ability to comprehend low long billions of years is and what can happen in that time from a random assemblage of chemicals. It starts to get into astrophysics as well as just chemistry and biology. That seems to go beyond the range of even a high school AP class. I'd be happy just to understand the Krebs cycle, without getting into the ultimate questions of theology as well.
