Intelligent Reasoning

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

Joe Felsenstein- Proud to be Willfully Ignorant

Yes it is true, Joe Felsenstein is a willfully ignorant evoTARD. But that really isn't saying much.

Joe Felsenstein spewing his ignorance- again:

This is just Joe G making his claim that Dembski’s CSI argument is only supposed to be applied to the Origin OI Life. He and I have been back and forth on this. Not only has he failed to convince me, he has failed to convince any of the other people here who have read Dembski, including any of the other ID proponents here. He is all alone in that.

Unfortunately for the willfully ignorant punk the book "No Free Lunch" supports my claim- see "No Free Lunch"- Complex Specified Information Pertains to Origins

The glossary on Uncommon Descent supports my claim:

CSI – Life shows evidence of complex, aperiodic, and specified information in its key functional macromolecules, and the only other example we know of such function-specifying complex information are artifacts designed by intelligent agents. A chance origin of life would exceed the universal probability bound (UPB) set by the scope of the universe; hence design is a factor in the origin and development of life. Contrary to a commonly encountered (and usually dismissive) opinion, this concept is neither original to Dr Dembski nor to the design theory movement. Its first recognized use was by noted Origin of Life researcher, Leslie Orgel, in 1973:

Living organisms are distinguished by their specified complexity. Crystals fail to qualify as living because they lack complexity; mixtures of random polymers fail to qualify because they lack specificity. [ L.E. Orgel, 1973. The Origins of Life. New York: John Wiley, p. 189. Emphases added.]

The concept of complex specified information helps us understand the difference between (a) the highly informational, highly contingent aperiodic functional macromolecules of life and (b) regular crystals formed through forces of mechanical necessity, or (c) random polymer strings. In so doing, they identified a very familiar concept — at least to those of us with hardware or software engineering design and development or troubleshooting experience and knowledge. Furthermore, on massive experience, such CSI reliably points to intelligent design when we see it in cases where we independently know the origin story.

the book "Signature in the Cell" also supports my claim.

The following article from Dembski supports my claim:

Intelligent Design as a Theory of Information

IOW Joe Felsenstein is just a pathetically ignorant piece-of-shit evoTARD.
