I am "Nic Tamzek" of the II Evolution/Creation forum and "zosdad" or "niiicholas" of talk.origins. My academic interest is biogeography, particularly phylogenetic and macroevolutionary aspects. Basically I am a biology nut with a spatial/geographical perspective. My main interest in the Intelligent Design debate is in the biological side, particularly "irreducible complexity". Most of the ID debate is philosophical or religio-political and is poorly informed about the actual biology under discussion. Unfortunately this applies to some of the critiques of ID as well as most of the ID advocates, so I try to bring the biology back into the center of the debate, where it should be.
