Re: Its not just the creationists ...intelligent design, my arse.
I think, with Darwin and Dawkins and all the others in between, we have a good, solid road to reason as far as Evolution goes.
From Dawkins' The River Out of Eden 1995 pp 7-8
There are now perhaps thirty million branches to the river of DNA, for that is an estimate of the number of species on earth… Today’s thirty million rivers are irrevocably separate.
Emphasis mine. If species are irrevocably separate as Dawkins states, then there is no possibility of horizontal gene transfer (HGT), or hybridisation for that matter.
