The New Strawman- If the Universe is Designed Then EVERYTHING is Designed
The shit these anti-intellectual evoTARDs pull from their ass and munch on like candy, is astounding.
Now we have:
"If the universe is designed then everything is designed and the design inference is useless!!!1111!!!11!!"And yet Dr. Behe himself wrote:
“Intelligent design is a good explanation for a number of biochemical systems, but I should insert a word of caution. Intelligent design theory has to be seen in context: it does not try to explain everything. We live in a complex world where lots of different things can happen. When deciding how various rocks came to be shaped the way they are a geologist might consider a whole range of factors: rain, wind, the movement of glaciers, the activity of moss and lichens, volcanic action, nuclear explosions, asteroid impact, or the hand of a sculptor.
The shape of one rock might have been determined primarily by one mechanism, the shape of another rock by another mechanism.
Similarly, evolutionary biologists have recognized that a number of factors might have affected the development of life: common descent, natural selection, migration, population size, founder effects (effects that may be due to the limited number of organisms that begin a new species), genetic drift (spread of "neutral," nonselective mutations), gene flow (the incorporation of genes into a population from a separate population), linkage (occurrence of two genes on the same chromosome), and much more. The fact that some biochemical systems were designed by an intelligent agent does not mean that any of the other factors are not operative, common, or important.”Cars are designed. That doesn't mean there aren't any automobile accidents.
We can still determine what nature, operating freely, can and cannot produce and what requires agency involvement. And obvioulsy it matters because we have entire fields dedictaed to telling the difference. Even Richard Dawkins admits it makes all the difference in the world.
But anyway, the desperation of these morons comes through loud and clear with these uncreative, childish strawmen.
Thank you. Please keep up the good work.
