I wonder whether you have ever built or analysed the construction of a precision item that needed to be exact to one part in a thousand, much less a million or a thousand million. A single gear embeds enough FSCO/I to be decisive.

Just a little more FSCO/I and some 2-cyle mix and he'll have it.

Wasn't  DaveTard into some crazy chemical self-medication?

I vaguely recall he was giving something unconventional and toxic to one of his dogs to cure cancer, not a hundred percent sure. He claimed to be expert on carburetors,outboard motors and mushroom breeding though.

Further research will decide whether Behe's concept of ‘irreducible complexity’ (identifying ‘a single system composed of several well-matched, interacting parts that contribute to the basic function, wherein the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to effectively cease functioning’) can be applied to the core system of the Utricularia trap.

I think we have an ID ringer here.  I dont know of any actual biologist who takes Behe seriously.

Set alight through dismissive rhetoric and the issue is lost in the fog of confusion and subtle form polarisation rooted in contempt. Such then self-reinforces, as the means of correction is being pushed aside and distracted from. KF

It's nice to see that KF is back to his normal illiterate self.

KF In case you didn’t know, the recent Saudi arrests of so many of the royal family is part of the global human trafficking take-down Trump is spearheading. Much more to follow as the attack on the globalist cartels ramps up and big names like Weinstein, Podesta and Sheen start going down. There’s a reason Donna Brazille is jumping off the DNC boat.

If you ask a biologist how, when or why some particular biological event occurred you might not get very specific answers but you should get some educated guesses. And, if you look at the research being done, you will find that scientists are very keen to discover answers to those questions. They want to know.

In my experience, if you ask an ID proponent how was design implemented or when was design implemented or why was design implemented you get nothing in return. Not even a guess. No hypothesis, nothing. It’s like no one in the ID camp is even considering those issues. But, no matter what the state of knowledge, if ID is a science then someone must be thinking about those things. But you never hear about that.

You can go to a biological conference and hear loads of conflicting views on lots of issues. Researchers are keen to discover new data and to argue with their peers about the interpretation. That’s healthy and right. When it comes to ID I never hear about anyone discussing various interpretations or approaches. That doesn’t seem right to me. I’ve never heard of a scientific discipline that didn’t argue and fuss and air out their laundry.

You need a designer to do the designing though. And they would need equipment and facilities and staff and resources and time. But no one seems to be interested in asking about any of those things.

Look, even with the data now available you could at least hypothesise when and how often design was implemented. If the designer is intervening frequently then we really should see evidence of their presence, their equipment, etc. If the designer kick-started everything billions of years a go and then left well then it might be really hard to find physical evidence of their work.

So, which is it? Some one must have a clue? The Intelligent Design movement is over 20 years old now, some progress must have been made. Somewhere. How much time does it take to study something designed to come up with some ideas of how and when it was created?

Hey, it’s up to you but aside from claiming that you’ve found design you guys haven’t done much. You haven’t even come up with a proposal for when design was implemented. It doesn’t look to me that you have done much ‘science’.

From my perspective, I haven’t seen much come out of the ID community in the last ten years past ‘design has been detected’. Dr Behe has tried to make some serious contributions but aside from him it’s been mighty slim pickings.

I think you’ve got some big questions and issues you should be working on but I see no evidence that any one is doing that work. Some of your answers sound like excuses to me. That’s just my opinion of course. Maybe you guys aren’t just spinning your wheels. But it does look like that. To me.

rvb8,

if I were gay I would quite proudly say.

This is like saying that you would be proud of being schizophrenic. Why would anybody be proud of an abnormality? Being gay is obviously a mental dysfunction most likely caused by bad parenting at an early age which triggered an epigenetic transformation.

Unfortunately although I know, and am friendly to many gays, (since university), I am sad to say, I am not a part of that fun culture.

I, too, I am friend of many gays. But I don’t see it as a fun culture. My gay friends all have problems with depression and obsessive behavior. They are not a happy bunch, regardless of the propaganda. This is why, as a Christian, I have compassion for gays. I know they are suffering.


The sciencing is fast and furious over at UD.

I am a Christian and I disagree with the claim that mankind descended from a single breeding pair.

Then you not a Christian…You are a pseudo-christian like all theistic-evolutionists resembling Ken Miller, Dennis Venema and the rest of the so-called christians who sold Christianity for the sake of being called a scientist…
I was very sadden to learn that even VJT sold himself to the so-called science…

BTW: While most would probably not call me a Christian ( I don’t care) I have learned one thing about Christianity over the years:
The Bible is always right. My 14 y old son recently proved me wrong because he relied on the Bible…
It is not a science book but it is ahead of science in many, many ways…IMV…

DS, it seems pretty clear that pizza and hot dogs are fairly transparent code words used by abusers; whatever may or may not be so about certain particular places of business. Spirit cooking is also a sad, documented reality reflective of what has to be reckoned a damaged mindset. Frankly, in my worse days, I fear half of several houses of legislative assembly and maybe at least that fraction of entertainers are caught up in much the same. Royals too, from what WJM is saying about the crackdown in Arabia. A terrible cleansing of the elites is going to be needed and it is not going to be pretty. WJM is engaged in that thankless work and more power to him. KF
