Ways you can tell it's Not Science

'The Questionable Authority' compared the publication of scientific documents by the Discovery institute to the publication of PR documents its produces.

"Press Releases: 0.44/day
'Scientific' pubs: 0.0046/day

To me, that's the comparison that shows the Intelligent Design Movement's priorities far more clearly than almost anything else. This is a group of people that are pumping out press releases and op-eds at about 100 times the rate that they are producing material that they claim is scientific."

What was also interesting was how the DI counted 'peer reviewed/peer-edited/published articles, it seems they would list the book, and then list each chapter of the book as a publication as well to inflate the numbers.
