On the "how does the actor act?" thread at UD, Joe G continues his dishonesty after fleeing the Amazon blog.
|Over on Amazon (Dr Beheís blog) a biologist claimed that carpenters, plumbers and electricians have specific mechanisms. However if I give 5 carpenters, 5 plumbers and 5 electricians a job to do it is very likely that each will do it differently. IOW there isnít one mechanism for carpentry, one for plumbing and one for electricians. They have a job and they do it per the specifications.|
The "biologist" happens to be me. Here's what I actually wrote.
Design is WHAT you want to do. A mechanism is HOW you do it. Your encyclopedia definitions point that out very well. A design is a formulation or a plan. A mechanism is "methods, procedures, processes". Thanks for proving my point.
If you can't understand this, or still think it is not the case, please tell me how a design for your house can, by itself, generate the house without involving intervening mechanical stages. Do you want to cower under a blueprint (design) when winter weather comes? Or would you rather involve carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work (mechanisms) to build a house that is a lot more substantial than that blueprint?
Did I write that there is "one mechanism" for each of these trades? No, I used them as examples of actual mechanistic processes, which are necessary to get from the blueprint (design) to the house (living things).
If the IDiots couldn't put words in your mouth, they couldn't "argue" at all. Pathetic.
Joe, if you are reading this, please come back to the Amazon site instead of hiding behind DT's skirts at UD. It would be a pleasure to kick your heinie again.
