Belly Up to the Bar
UPDATED: Of course, if you prefer more dignified discussions (as opposed to just digs at the UDudes), you can head to this one at the Triumvirate.
OMnG, if you aren't at the official Uncommonly Dense Discussion Thread at After the Bar Closes, you're really missing out. This is where the laughs are. Click here to join the ongoing diss-cussion.
Patrick at "Overwhelmingevidence.com" (another Dembski brainfahrtchild):
To an observer looking at the evidence, the result can look a lot like structures somehow modifying themselves over the course of generations (perhaps through the hocus pocus of natural selection), but anyone with any sense can see that these are modifications of underlying designs that came from OUTSIDE the natural world
My Bold! It's classic stuff. I mean, how credulous is Patrick anyway? Is he like 13 years old? I think he just accepts the premise that is just is that way and everything else is just filling in the details. I mean, sombody told him something years ago
because accepting them as being designed would upset historical narratives (they're older than they "should be").
And forever more things are as they "should be" and if not you are wrong! muh-huh!
Man, I'm learning so much about science at Dembski's trogs. Yeah, evolution's going to be dead soon.
I'm all confused now. I thought all the canyons and mountains and everything were carved out by Noah's flood. If that's not Intelligent Design, I don't know what is. Filtering that explanation will lead down a slippery slope, I tell ya.
Not to mention that the "undesigned" pretty mountains are Michael Behe's control for detecting "design" in "designed" thingies, like mousetraps and flagella.Actually, this development is hilarious. It throws the whole EF and irreducible complexity into the canyon. If everything's designed, how are you supposed to be able to tell?
2ndclass (being facetious):
Silly Kristine. Not all mountains are designed. Only the pretty ones.
I understand now! And I'll drink to that (but what?).
