Intelligent Design was first. Evolution challenged it, not vice versa.

Much the same way that lightbulbs challenged fire, electricity challenged burning things, and transistors challenged vacuum tubes.

Well, you're certainly not advancing the cause of intelligent design.

Exactly the argument I used repeatedly, only with the opposite standpoint.
Countless mythologies came before the christian one. Burden of proof still lies with you, fuckwit.

True, but it was called Creationism at the time. Intelligent Design is just the latest euphemism.
But y'know... usually the way it works is, we get something wrong, then we get it right, in that order. It doesn't typically happen the other way around.

Challenged successfully. With help from the Big Bang and abiogenesis.

That's because myths came about before true understanding did. Ask the Greeks about Helios's chariot before they knew what the "sun" actually was. Christian creationism (there are other creation stories, too) is a myth. It got its ass handed to it by science.

It's called "progress". It's why we're not all the property of our local lord.

Evolution challenged ID and won, in the scientific literature, in the courts and in practical application.

Ok, then explain then, if Intellgent Design works, why I do not have 2 mouths, one in front of my stomach, for food ingestion, & another seperate one for speech...
Also, if I was Intellgently Designed, why is my air intake, & food ingestion system using the same piping, as there is a risk of the food blocking said pipe, causing me not to breathe, as a result...?
Surely they should be as widely seperated as possible, to avoid such a worst case scenario...?

Yes, evolution challenged it and won by all rational measures.

No, ID is just a way of creationists trying to shove their bullshit down non-Christian's throats that was developed because the creationists don't like the fact that evolution doesn't require a designer.

Sure, like the Dakota challenged the 747 for mastery of the skies.
Except that Dakotas actually exist.

Find a reference to 'intelligent design' that predates Darwin.
