Jonathan Eisen has a blog post at The Tree of Life highlighting a paper about intelligent design from the Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology by Mark Farmer and Andrea Habura. "Basically, the article is a detailed discussion of how examples relating to microbial eukaryotes ... that are used by Intelligent Design advocates are, well, BS," Eisen writes. "They go on to discuss examples involving speciation, the fossil record, evolution of drug resistance in Plasmodium, and a few other things," he adds. "In each case they discuss a claim by ID supporters and then discuss evidence for why this claim is not valid. Overall the paper is worth reading if you are involved in any discussions with ID supporters."
