blipey the clown: Liar, Loser and Ignoramus
"You claim to be able to determine design by just examining the string itself."--blipey the clueless clown
That is a lie clowny. No IDist has ever made that claim.
"By looking at the string, can ID tell me if it was designed or not?"--blipey
No blipey. As with ALL scientific investigations, ID also requires a thorough investigation.
What are we investigating? Where was the object found? What is the surrounding area?
IOW no investigation is done in a vacuum.
However I wouldn't expect a clown to understand how science is conducted- that is why you are a clown and not a professional investigator.
I listed 10 books pertaining to ID. Reading those books should cure your ignorance. Although I am sure you will not read them because it appears that you are proud of being ignorant.
