This is my presentation at the AIPS symposium 'Evolutionism and Religion', Firenze, november 2009. It's a criticism of Intelligent Design theory, from the point of view of philosophy of science.
Part I: on the mistaken notion of 'explanation' underlying Dembski's 'explanatory filter'
Part II: on 'No free lunch theorems' and the connection between theories and data
Part III: Intelligent design vs. real scientific research.
