I get a mention…

Wesley Elsberry analyzes the highly publicized but highly bogus “explanatory filter,” which is claimed to allow design to be discovered in nature. This filter is, along with irreducible complexity, one of the two supposed intellectual foundations of a new science of ID.

And, of the two, the one that is claimed to be most basic. Dembski has asserted that Behe’s irreducible complexity is a subset of Dembski’s specified complexity.
