An internal combustion engine is irreducibly complexity, for instance. Take away the valve, or the piston, or the spark plug, or the wire, and it does not function.

You do realize that early internal combustion engines didnít use compression or sparks to function. So much for irreducibly complex.

Besides, the double-acting reciprocating piston pump with a crank-connecting rod mechanism was invented in 1206 for moving water and spark gap generators were invented in 1887 to generate radio signals. Thus the modern internal combustion engine is a perfect example of how existing features can be co-opted to produce new functions.

Very nice. †

swine pearls, etc.

Are the tards incapable of doing research? Or merely philosophically opposed?

A lot of them don't even seem to have any google.
