Ugh. Has anyone sifted through the rebuttal to the Dover trial documentary?

Is there a rebuttal to this rebuttal!? Looks like so much work! *sigh*
A good place to start research for a rebuttal would be to examine the Discovery Institute's involvement with the Dover case:

It's an interesting coincidence that we're talking about the PBS/NOVA documentary - I've just watched a portion of it in Biology AP/IB today. ;)
I had always thought ID used the evolutionary principal but claimed that "God" / and intelligent designer controlled and directed the process. I watched the doco Evolution on trial http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/id/ about the Dover School case and it sounded like ID was saying individual animals were brought into existence whole and complete.

It is always interesting to ask supporters of ID just why an "Intelligent Designer" would create an animal like parasitic worms that only have human hosts like this one :-)

The usual reply is animals like this evolved after the fall from grace to make humans suffer ot We don't know.
What never ceases to amaze me, is that despite even a working knowledge of evolution, cosmology and most importantly(in the case of the big bang) relativistic-quantum mechanics and particle physics. ID supporters still continue to make sweeping pseudo-scientific statements with nothing else to back them but the bible. Its not even about the lack of evidence or scientific analysis for me anymore, its the full lack of understanding towards the dominating theories of science of which they openly "challenge".
