|Since I mentioned Dembski: He has a new piece on his personal webpages on the origin of Sars-Cov2. While this would have been the chance to demonstrate the strength of design detection (all sequences are available and IIRC he claimed to have appropriate tools) he of course evades the challenge.|
Evade the challenge of explaining that germs were also "designed" by his, er, "designer"? Well of course he'd evade that, they nearly always do. Oh, and parasites as well as germs.
Initially, I was wondering if he was aware of the irony when he cited the following statement

| “China is trying to produce variants that suggest it came from bats to cover up that coronavirus originally came from a lab.” |
"[...] 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."
