Bring out your inner lab rat: Take this test to find out if you are truly an intelligent design type - or not

As we are already on the subject of psychology and the intelligent design controversy (volunteers are recruited in the post below for an unrelated study): Clinical psychologist Jack Cole offers a simple perceptual test to differentiate between intelligent design types and atheistic naturalists.

Do take Cole's test. He has thought of designing a clinical experiment along these lines, and that would be fun.

Excellent readers, for once your opinion on intelligent design is wanted

Joel Verwegen, a University of Toronto psychology and biology student, hopes that regular Post-Darwinist readers (who, after all, are the widely acknowledged social elite of the intelligent design controversy) will respond to his invitation to view a PBS debate on the subject and answer a questionnaire. (The debate link is in the q-aire.)

He tells me,
a) This is a social cognition study for the ID-evolution community.

b) The study involves viewing a short debate and completing a questionnaire.

c) Time requirements are ~30 minutes.

d) Though no personal information will be collected or released, should individuals wish to insure anonymity, I will be accepting submissions from anonymous email services.
He assures me that no attempt will be made to shrink wrap your head. So do oblige him if you possibly can, will you? If you wish to contact Joel, you may find him here:
