The advantage of experience over ignorance- my response to desk jockeys Elsberry and Wilkins part II
For some reason these clueless desk jockeys think that “design” is the default position when all other nodes get passed. Not so.
To reach the design inference there has to be signs of work, counterflow or some recognizable pattern. Or else we default to “it could be explainable by some small chance event”, i.e. “we don’t know”.
To get to “design” it not only has to pass through the other nodes. It has to have that second part also.
So it looks like this peer-reviewed paper is nothing but a strawman.
Proudly strutting their strawman around, they say the following about “Charles”:
Although he has not heard of Dembski's filter, he knows the logic: whatever cannot be accounted for by natural law or chance must be the result of design.
That has nothing to do with Dembski. You jerks made that up because you don’t know what you are talking about. Obviously neither did the people who “reviewed” it.
If I were Dembski I would have sought out the both of you and knocked your teeth out.
