Intelligent Design, a counter-productive exercise

| 13 Comments

Guy T. Sturino has an interesting article on Intelligent Design.

Sturino Wrote:

Intelligent Design adds nothing to the scientific, investigative curiosity about the nature of our universe, and as such is a waste of time, energy and resources much better spent in providing our children with the tools necessary to succeed in a multi-cultural and multi-religious society.

On his personal website he published an article on August 22, 2005 titled “A Class On Intelligent Design.”

Concluding

So class, you have had your introduction to the theory of Intelligent Design. It is time, now, to consolidate your knowledge and propose a comprehensive theory based on the findings to this point. Mine is the “We’re on our own” theory. The intelligence behind Intelligent Design is either oblivious of, insensitive to, or derives pleasure from the perpetual anguish of man. I have read no history, heard no news from anywhere in the world, nor seen anything for myself which would deny the validity of this position.

I like it – nasty, brutish and short. ;-)

YES! Nasty, brutish and short in brains is what ID is all about. This I believe!

the same could be said of evolution as a whole, nasty, brutish, and in the grand scheme of things, thankfully short lived…

Wake to the future everyone!!! The truth is out there. Welcome to the beginning of the end of the lie of evolution! You had more than your 15 minutes. Times up!!

Around 150 years and counting at this point? Neither of these two IDiots mentioned Waterloo. Reminds me a bit of Dick Cheney and his, “The insurgency is in its final throes.”

Bob, hey now, watch the name calling. I didn’t call you a soulless,pseudo intellectual on spiritual novocain did I? So just watch it.

Waterloo!!!! Waterloo!!!! Waterloo!!!!!!

(yawn)

Nebraska man!!!!Earnst Haeckel!!!!Piltdown man!!!!kiss my ass!!!!

Bob, hey now, watch the name calling. … So just watch it.

I have to agree. Comparing ID enthusiasts to Dick Cheney is beyond the pale.

We’ve had about 5.5 million 15 minute periods in the sun.

The end is not nigh.

A man writes a well thought out article on the scientific failings of ID, and is met by the cries of “Welcome to the beginning of the end of the lie of evolution!” … Right, that’s the conclusion I came to as well, or it would be, if I lived under a bridge!

And as for Intelligent Design made easy, a link to a post entitled “Intelligent Design- Is It Scientific?, The debate”. If I were to answer the question in the title, I would say based on that post, that no, it isn’t scientific. It seemed to be some rambling on for 2 posts ending with a plea to “think outside the box”. And by rambling I mean to say that at one point I think the author was implying that having gas giant planets in our solar sytem was a requirement for the existence of life on our planet! The post was exceedingly hard to read as it has no structure at all, is this science? What conclusion could a person draw from it other to think that it’s junk? It’s not even a debate yet, it’s been a few days and no one has replied to the thread.

Thanks for pointing out the link to evolutionfairytale.com though, I signed the guestbook.

Re ‘at one point I think the author was implying that having gas giant planets in our solar sytem was a requirement for the existence of life on our planet!”

Even if true it would just mean that star systems without gas giants wouldn’t have native life. So I’m wondering what that would have to do with “I.D.” or evolution?
