|In fairness, Matzke doesn’t really know much about carnivorous plants, whereas Loennig is clearly an expert.|
Matzke has a tendency to rely on pseudo-experts, which can play him false.
His best bet right now, to event he score, would be to bring in a real expert on his side.
Her stupidity is truly awe-inspiring.
Ah, Lönnig again. As usual he cites Behe and other creationists in his article "Carnivorous Plants" that somehow made it into Nature's Encyclopaedia of Life Sciences. Interestingly, he cites Robert Nachtwey's "Der Irrweg des Darwinismus" published 1959. According to a review it contained already everything that Intelligent Design claims today and those arguments were outdated back then:
|We could dispose of this book and its|
subject-the misdirection of Darwinism
-in a few sentences. On the basis of its
intrinsic merit it rates only a little space.
But the very fact that such a work could
be published a century after Darwin's
The Origin of Species is interesting in
itself and, to anyone concerned with the
resistance that scientific knowledge often
encounters, this fact is important enough
to merit some study.
"[...] the type of information we find in living systems is beyond the creative means of purely material processes [...] Who or what is such an ultimate source of information? [...] from a theistic perspective, such an information source would presumably have to be God."
