I would put forth Behe’s idea that the flagellum is irreducibly complex at least puts the ball back in Darwin’s court. Now I read Miller’s take on it and like Darwin he can imagine how at least a subset of parts could have come into functional existence and latter morphed into the flagellum. But I say again, I can imagine how God spoke the flagellum into existence.
No I think the probabilities introduced by Dembski demand a scientific reckoning superior to imagination alone. I think it is high time a feasible detailed scenario be proposed for the evolution of the flagellum or any complex organ for that matter.
Otherwise, I think we can dismiss the theory based on Darwin’s standard laid out above.

Humanist Manifesto III (HM3): WARNING #1 – The opening statement could not be any more offensive to the God of the Bible than it is already. The phrase “without supernaturalism” clearly defines any god as, worse than non-existent, completely irrelevant (see Romans 1 for Biblical consequences). What is more, it is incongruent with the empirical data. No human has ever accomplished the set of feats described.
“Humans are an integral part of nature, the result of unguided evolutionary change. Humanists recognize nature as self-existing. We accept our life as all and enough, distinguishing things as they are from things as we might wish or imagine them to be. We welcome the challenges of the future, and are drawn to and undaunted by the yet to be known.”
“Thus engaged in the flow of life, we aspire to this vision with the informed conviction that humanity has the ability to progress toward its highest ideals. The responsibility for our lives and the kind of world in which we live is ours and ours alone.”
HM3: WARNING #10 – Man had some high ideals at the Tower of Babel. Our ways are not His ways. I would recommend the humanist read Romans 3. And yes we are responsible for our actions. That is why each and every one of us needs a savior. JESUS saves!
