|So, the broken vitamin C gene is "nature operating freely" because now we can't make vitamin C, but the 2 amino acid substitutions in FOXP2 must be ***designed*** because now we can talk.|
That's just fucking stupid.
Yes, that is fucking stupid. That's why no one but an evoTARD would say such a thing.
So FOXP2 mutation was not designed, then?
The FOXP2 gene was intelligently designed. And each organism that has it has the version they require.
What about the broken vitamin C gene, broken the same way in all apes (including us)? Design?
What are the restraints on design, and how do you know?
What is the difference between "everything was designed" and "the Lord works in strange and mysterious ways"? Both answers are completely vacuous.
So a broken vitamin C gene, not only somehow became fixed in a population, but remained unaltered over innumerous generations such that it became a genetic marker? Really?
Dry-nosed primates, bats, humans and guinea pigs- the same break/ same loss of function.
Restraints on design? The laws of physics and chemistry. How do I know? That holds true for this universe.
ID doesn't claim everything was designed. That said, we know it matters to an investigation how whatever is being investigated came to be the way it is. Stonehenge could never be understood if it was studied as a geological formation.
