From this book review. Note a very large number:

"In Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, learn about jumping insects with real gears, and the ingenious technology behind a power-punching shrimp. Enter the strange world of carnivorous plants. And check out a microscopic protein machine in a bird’s eye that may work as a GPS device by harnessing quantum entanglement. Join renowned Brazilian scientist Marcos Eberlin as he uncovers a myriad of artful solutions to major engineering challenges in chemistry and biology, solutions that point beyond blind evolution to the workings of an attribute unique to minds — foresight.


"Foresightfascinated me by its breadth and depth of knowledge of all things biological. Drawing from his specific field of chemistry, Marcos Eberlin reveals the astonishing ways that the chemistry of DNA and RNA make them perfect for their tasks. If you ever wondered in biology class why RNA uses ribose and DNA uses deoxyribose, or why RNA uses uracil and DNA thymine, Marcos Eberlin’s book will tell you why, and how their perfect suitability for their purpose is a remarkable example of foresight. As Eberlin’s detailed description reveals, the chemistry and biology of DNA and RNA come together in an interlocking puzzle that goes click when it’s all in place. The fit, and the foresight required to build it, are incredible. Eberlin’s book also deals with life on the organismal level—everything from our sense organs to sexual reproduction and the wondrous structure of a bird’s egg. Note also that none of his foresight arguments are based on a lack of knowledge. They are based on positive knowledge of how things work and how the parts of each system work together.”—Ann Gauger, PhD, Senior Fellow, Center for Science and Culture, Co-Author, Science and Human Origins

“'Foresight is for those willing to challenge themselves with a new perspective, for free people who dare to go beyond scientific dogmas. Marcos Eberlin’s book is a journey through the evidence in chemistry and biology for the indispensable role of foresight in the origin of life and the universe, presented by the author in an easily understood and engaging way.”—Daniela de Luna Martins, PhD, Associate Professor of Chemistry, Fluminense Federal University, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

“'Foresight provides refreshing new evidence, primarily from biology, that science needs to open its perspective on the origin of living things to account for the possibility that purely natural, materialistic evolution cannot account for these facts. The book is written in an easy-to-read style that will be appreciated by scientists and non-scientists alike and encourages the reader to follow the truth wherever it leads, as Socrates advised long ago.”—Michael T. Bowers, PhD, Distinguished Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California Santa Barbara

Comment: There are lots of others. ID folks are highly trained scientists.
