Joe Felsenstein, Proud to be an Ignorant Lard Butt
Joe Felsenstein is supposed to be one of the brighter lights of evolutionism. Unfortunately every time he tries to take on ID he proves to be a complete ignoramus. In a thread Joe F started he adds this bit of ignorance:
(CSI is only present if one has already ruled out chance or mechanical necessity).WRONG! CSI exists regardless of how it arose. The point of CSI is that every time we have observed it and knew the cause it has always been via some intelligent agency. ALWAYS, 100% of the time. And we have never observed nature, operating freely producing anything like it. NEVER.
That is why when we observe CSI and don't know the cause we can safely infer it was via an intelligent agency.
There isn't anything written by an IDist that says CSI only exists once we have ruled out necessity and chance. Evolutionists are proud to be ignorant assholes.
ETA- The claim of Intelligent Design is that only intelligent agencies can produce CSI. Wm. Dembski says that he has proven that necessity and chance cannot produce CSI ("No Free Lunch"). That means if someone can demonstrate otherwise a main claim of ID falls.
AGAIN- CSI EXISTS REGARDLESS OF WHAT CAUSED IT
