Quote (Leftfield @ Oct. 20 2009,06:25)
Shameful confession: As a layman, sometimes I start to think that maybe the people over there at UD might be onto something. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while and all that.

But then something so colossally stupid as the recent post, reporting that the last universal common ancestor was complex, therefore Jeebus, comes up and none of the regulars points out that the last universal common ancestor might, just possibly, not have been the first self-replicating entity. And so I am reminded that any of them who have might the common sense God gave a chicken have no interest in science or reality.

That thread is pathetic. †Please, socketeers, go over and set them straight.

ETA: If you haven't all been banned by now.

Or a yellow banana, thus strengthening the hypothesis that Jeebus is Lord.

POEPLES WHO ARE HOMOS AND LIBRULS AND ARE FIRST AGAINST THE WALL COME TEH DESIGN REVOLUTIONS:

1) TARDEN CHATTERBOX
2) HORSE BOTHERER
3) PLEBMAN
4) *New entry* KIEFS.
5) P.DIDDYMOUSE

DvK - You want on this list?

I know what you're thinking. "Can he count to six or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as I'm an autodictater Polymaths, the most powerful force in teh universe (except for gravity), and would blow your mind clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

Six, if you use the banana. I'd better be careful. But RichardTaHuge counting to six will violate SLOT, so I'm safe.

Guess I'm lucky! RichardTaHuge, I bow to your superior flamBOYancy!

The fundamental problem that any materialistic or naturalistic explanation for life faces is that it has the laws of physics as its ONLY explanatory resource.

Being restricted to demonstrable reality is a problem?

Amazingly, the comment gets far sillier after that.

If the provenance of the programs addressed is questionable, it is entirely due to Dawkinsís unwillingness or inability to provide the original. And why, exactly?

Am I supposed to believe that he just somehow lost or canít remember a program that helped make him rich and famous?

Aw, come on, tell me another one. Itís comedy nite, right?

If I needed any further evidence that neo-Darwinism is bust and canít be fixed, this would sure convince me.

Added: I donít know a single reason at this point to think that the original code ever existed, so I would just forget about it.

What a sad cunt.

Absolutely this is possible. How many programmers keep or can remember code they wrote 20 years ago? It may seem to you that this programme is central to Dawkinís fame but that is because the ID world is obsessed with it. In the Blind Watchmaker it makes a very limited point. The discussion of the program occupies about 2 pages of a 350 page book he wrote over 20 years ago. He spends far more effort and time on the biomorph programme.

O'Leary's idiotic response:
Quote
Mark Frank,

Suppose I could not remember and had no copy of something I wrote 20 years ago Ė which, incidentally, made me rich and famous. But a bunch of other people have supplied substitutes. A reasonable person might wonder whether my version ever existed.

All I need do is create the impression that I am a genius, and get people to believe it?

Meanwhile, people who want to study the question must work with the available information.

That woman has a problem.

ETA: multiple problems.

Is she really sugesting that Dawkins never actually wrote said program?

She deserves her own chapter in the Mental Problems section.

She's treating science like a religion (again).

Since Darwin is Evolution God and Dawkins is Evolution Jesus, Denyse simply needs to show that Evolution Jesus is flawed.  Then, since Evolution Jesus is flawed and Jesus Jesus is not flawed, all the evilutionists will stop worshipping Evolution Jesus and start worshipping Jesus Jesus.  All that's wrong will be righted and all Denyse's prose will be coherent.

It works in bible class.

Even god couldn't do that.

Indeed.  In the ancient Greek system of thought, Denyse was defined, axiomatically, as "She by whose hand nary a coherent sentence may be written" (the name was meant to be ironic).  Under this system a god could no more easily cause Denyse to produce a well-formed, intelligent piece of prose than he could create a boulder so big he couldn't lift it.  Zeus, Apollo and Yahweh all tried--and they all failed miserably.  I think the embarrassment may actually have caused them to go into retirement.

Agreed. It's precious that she claims that it's the tiny section on "weasel" that made Dawkin's book valuable. And that all she has to do is "create the impression" of genius and proceed to step three: Profit!

Ah, it's just too funny. And the funniest part of all is that Dembski is only slightly more erudite and willing to work at deception for profit.

Yes, fight fans, it'll be a clash of titans -- a two-day conference on the campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary that will pit the pure, heavenly God-inspired forces of faith against the foul humanist (*ptooie!*) DARK POWERS OF EVIL SCIENCE.

WHO WILL WIN?!?! WHO WILL EMERGE VICTORIOUS FROM THE STEEL-CAGE OCTAGON OF DOOM?

Buy your tickets now for only $75, yes, that's right, for that paltry price, YOU can be witness to the blazing, battling brawny brains of brutality of†William Dembski, Stephen Meyer, Jay Richards, and John West.

These Masters of Metaphysical Mayhem will take on all foes, all the hellish heathen hordes of EVILUTIONISMS in a THREE-DAY ARMAGEDDON OF APOLOGETICS.

Get your tickets today! Remember, it's October 23-24, 2009, the ROCKIN' RAGNAROK OF RECKONING!

BE THERE!1!!...Be there...be there!
