1) I’ve pretty much dispensed with the EF. It suggests that chance, necessity, and design are mutually exclusive. They are not. Straight CSI is clearer as a criterion for design detection.

Has he therefore abandoned the chain of argument which depends on the EF?
Now he simply leaves it out of his line of argument and pretends the hole it leaves doesn't exist.
