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 is Willfully Ignorant


Joe Felsenstein is proud to be willfully ignorant with respect to ID. Joe spews:

While Behe kept implying that his motives were purely scientific (and Josh agreed with him), it is interesting that he asked Josh whether Josh had a detailed explanation for the origin of (something – the flagellum?). Meanwhile Behe has his own arguments, which did not include a detailed explanation of the origin of, well, anything! The ID types keep saying that ID is a theory competing with “Darwinism”, when they present no such theory, but rather a collection of arguments about how “Darwinism” can’t account for the diversity of life. It’s just like saying “Here’s my theory: it’s that for reason X, Y, and Z your theory is no good!”

Umm, YOURS is the mechanistic position, Joe. Ever since Darwin who proclaimed to have a step-by-step process for producing the appearance of design with the need for an intelligent designer. 

On the other hand ID claims to have a step-by-step process for determining the existence of intelligent design. We don't have to know how in order to make that determination. We don't even ask about the how until after we determined it was designed. So again, reality dictates that the only way to make any determination about the who or how is by studying the design and all relevant evidence. We don't know how Stonehenge was made but we know it is artificial. Everything we know about it came from many years of study and research.

If we showed humans going into the lab and producing irreducible complexity, would that satisfy you, Joe? Could we then just say the intelligent designer did it like genetic engineers?

Wikipedia is Promoting a Lie


Wikipedia is promoting a lie. Big surprise. Judge Jones bio:

He is best known for his presiding role in the landmark Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District case, in which the teaching of "intelligent design" in public school science classes was ruled to be unconstitutional. 

Except no one was trying to teach intelligent design in public school science classes. What the fuck is wrong with people? All the school board wanted was a factual statement be read to the science classes. There wasn't any teaching of anything. The students were left to do their own research, if they wanted to. Yes, a pro-ID book was provided but at no expense to the school. But evos know that any challenge to their bullshit and their bullshit gets flushed.

And the sad part about the trial was that the judge was fooled by the lies and bluffs of the plaintiffs. Scientists have gone over the material and found that Ken Miller lied and the lawyers threw down a literature bluff- yes, all the material was checked and it didn't have any support for the alleged evolution of the immune system via natural selection and drift. Miller lied about blood clotting.

But why do evos insist on promoting that lie? Are they really that desperate? Or is it ignorance?

Why the Modern Synthesis and Modern Evolutionary Thought, Fails


The modern synthesis paired Darwin's ideas on evolution with the new field of genetics. DNA was the inherited molecule that afforded the variation that allegedly drove universal common descent. Unfortunately we now know that is total bullshit.

How do we know that it's total bullshit? Because DNA just encodes for amino acid sequences. Those amino acid sequences are called polypeptides. DNA doesn't even control how those polypeptides will fold. Some proteins seem to follow their sequence in folding, meaning the sequence determines the folding via chemical attraction. However we know prions can come along and, without changing that sequence, they change the spatial shape. But that is moot as most proteins require chaperones to be able to fold properly.

DNA doesn't even determine where the proteins will go after they are formed. DNA does not tell the proteins how to assemble into structures. DNA does not determine what type of cells will form during development. DNA does not direct cellular differentiation by determining what cell is what.

So, far from rescuing Darwin, modern biology refutes him.

Swamidass Exposed: Behe v Swamidass


Vindication! Uncommon Descent has an unflattering post about Joshua Swamidass :

Around the 25 min. mark the moderator Pat Flynn asked Swamidass to address the argument of irreducible complexity (IC) which Behe just presented. He was specifically asked to come up with empirical evidence refuting IC. Swamidass did not fulfill this simple request, he just babbled away, and managed to derail the conversation several times by moving to theological questions instead of just producing the evidence-based arguments against IC that the moderator, Behe, and the rest of us were waiting for.

In my view, Swamidass excels as an expert in smokescreens; he can talk endlessly without nailing down tangible and memorable points. Although pressured more than once by Behe to deliver at least a single counter argument to IC, he did not come up with anything containing even a whiff of substance. Paradoxically, Swamidass insists that Behe is the one creating confusion by the way he uses words and presents definitions. Again this critique was not accompanied by concrete examples but was broadened out to cover everything and nothing.

While failing to provide real arguments, Dr. Swamidass instead spent a considerable amount of energy boosting his own authority. Several times he appealed, not just to authority, but in a cringeworthy way to his own authority using phrases like I’m a scientist, I’m a biologist, I’m a mathematical biologist, as if fearing the viewers had forgotten his qualifications. In the last part of the debate he even tried to interrupt Behe by impolitely and irrelevantly listing all his own credentials. Now that was indeed a weird moment!

Holy shit! It makes me feel better knowing there are growing numbers of people who see through Joshua's bullshit. I was banned from his forum because I exposed him as a poseur.

Nathan Lents- Your Ignorance is NOT an Argument


Nathan Lents says that "devolution" isn't a thing. wikipedia disagrees. Wikipedia supports its claim. Lents just spews his ignorance as if it means something.

Lents says devolution not a thing. Reality disagrees.

Human Evolution and COVID-19


Thanks to COVI-19 it appears that humans have finally, fully evolved into pussies. There may be outliers but the majority is already there.
