|I have reviewed Chapter 4 of the increasingly painful Science and Human Origins.|
It's about junk DNA and attacking Francis Collins. But not really about Science.
I am stoked there is only one chapter left. This book is a dreadful, infuriating read.
I'm sure that I'm not the only one who realizes that the god zombie IDiots fight against the idea of "junk" DNA because they believe in the 'perfection' of their chosen designer god, and that their perfect god just couldn't and wouldn't create anything that isn't perfect. Creating "junk", or anything 'non-functional', at least in 'faithful' human beings, would be out of the question.
Well, with that in mind, chimps, which are part of the alleged perfect creation, are perfect then, and so are all other organisms that have ever lived, along with everything else in the universe since it was all allegedly created by their perfect designer god. And since absolutely everything was/is perfectly created by their perfect god, and there is no "junk", the god zombie IDiots shouldn't be offended by the concept of common ancestry with chimps or anything else and they shouldn't consider humans to be superior to chimps or anything else.
If everything was/is perfectly created by a perfect designer god, then how can anything be inferior or superior to anything else? Everything would be perfectly equal, but of course that's not the way religious zombies see it. They see humans, or at least themselves, as vastly superior to not only chimps but to everything else in the entire universe. They see the universe and all other life forms as being created just for god zombie humans, to use as supplies, or to abuse, and for whatever needs or selfish desires humans may have. And if something isn't suitable as a supply, or for entertainment, it's a nuisance or a threat that must be the work of the devil.
Maybe the biggest problem they have with "junk" DNA is they will not tolerate the idea that they are or even could be partly "junk". What they really believe is that they are perfect and that no part of them is or could be "junk", or non-functional in any way. In their arrogant minds they are the perfect image of their perfect god. Every DNA molecule in them is perfect. Every atom in them is perfect. Everything in them functions perfectly and has a perfect, designed function. They are flawless and are never in error. If there are any flaws in living things or in the universe it's the fault of non-believing, non-worshiping, non-obedient, non-faithful, Satanic, evil trouble-makers who don't believe in and worship the 'right' god and only those horrible people will suffer the consequences (especially eternally) for their blasphemous thoughts and actions.
According to christian godbots, adam and eve sinned and that caused the subsequent problems in the designer god's perfect creation. Before they sinned everything was allegedly perfect, and I'm sure that the bible thumpers believe that if sinners could be eliminated or 'brought back into the fold' everything would be perfect again. Of course it will be perfect in 'heaven' once all the imperfect sinners and blasphemers are eliminated and sent to hell.
One of the things I find interesting, and irritating, is that godbots often say that all humans are sinful and imperfect, and that only god/jesus are perfect, but they also can't stand, and won't tolerate, any suggestion, implication, or assertion that THEY or their fellow religious zealots are or could be flawed in any way. They say shit like "I'm not perfect, just forgiven." but they say a lot of other things to the contrary and ACT as though they are perfect.
The word "junk" really bothers them. "Junk" implies waste, flaws, uselessness, no value, mistakes, sloppiness, deliberate imperfection, and/or ineptitude, especially when considering 'specially created in the image of a perfect god, by that perfect, omnipotent, omniscient god'. And since they won't tolerate even the slightest implication that their god isn't perfect, or that its special creations aren't perfect, they really like to blame any waste, imperfections, sin, etc., on the imaginary adam and eve or the devil or whatever/whoever else is convenient, even though, according to their own dogma, their perfect god created EVERYTHING, which includes adam, eve, the so-called devil, sin, flaws, waste, etc., etc., etc.
Have any of you ever seen an IDiot arguing that there's NO junk DNA in a slug, or a maggot, or a petunia, or a fungus? How about a chimp?
I seriously doubt that they would be offended at the suggestion, or even absolute proof, of there being "junk" DNA in 'lower life forms'. It's all about humans, well, the special-ness of 'faithful', 'chosen' humans that is.
