Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Supporting Intelligent Design

For those who choose willfull ignorance over reality I offer just a glimpse of support for ID (including a testable hypothesis):

Intelligent Design: The Design Hypothesis

Intelligent Design in Biology Textbooks

Intelligent Design in Biology Textbooks Continued

The Design Inference in Peer-Review

And as far as ID = Creation, using the same logic the theory of evolution is a Creation theory:

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved."--Charles Darwin in "On the Origins of Species..." 6th edition, last sentence of the last chapter


And for ID being different than Creation:

"The differences between Biblical creationism and the IDM should become clear. As an unashamedly Christian/creationist organization, ICR is concerned with the reputation of our God and desires to point all men back to Him. We are not in this work merely to do good science, although this is of great importance to us. We care that students and society are brainwashed away from a relationship with their Creator/Savior. While all creationists necessarily believe in intelligent design, not all ID proponents believe in God. ID is strictly a non-Christian movement, and while ICR values and supports their work, we cannot join them."- John Morris, president of the Institute for Creation Research


See also: Intelligent Design Is Not Creationism Response to "Not (Just) in Kansas Anymore" by Eugenie C. Scott:
Scott refers to me as an intelligent design "creationist," even though I clearly write in my book Darwin's Black Box (which Scott cites) that I am not a creationist and have no reason to doubt common descent. In fact, my own views fit quite comfortably with the 40% of scientists that Scott acknowledges think "evolution occurred, but was guided by God." Where I and others run afoul of Scott and the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) is simply in arguing that intelligent design in biology is not invisible, it is empirically detectable. The biological literature is replete with statements like David DeRosier's in the journal Cell: "More so than other motors, the flagellum resembles a machine designed by a human" (1). Exactly why is it a thought-crime to make the case that such observations may be on to something objectively correct?


Creationism and Propaganda:
The logic of intelligent design tells us that it is not the same as creationism. Many proponents of intelligent design are not creationists. And more and more creationists are distancing themselves from intelligent design. Nevertheless, most critics of ID insist on equating intelligent design with creationism. While I am sure there are many critics who are sincere (although misinformed) when equating intelligent design with creationism, nevertheless, the accusation has many of the hallmarks of propaganda.


IOW when all else fails and to hide the fact that evolutionitwits cannot support their position, they have to lie.


The only way any anti-IDist is going to get to post a response is to provide a testable hypothesis for non-telic processes.

So the prediction is no anti-IDist will be allowed to post a response.
