Circular destruction

Posted by: Hammer / 12:50 PM

Athletes demonstrate intelligent design. See, they are so good at what they do, that it evinces some greater intelligence. When they train hard, they even commune with a higher spirit.

Mere mortals, like me, don't commune. We suppress the urge to vomit and curse the intelligence of the designer who put all the hills on the second half of the 10k course.

Let's take a small step: if the bodies of athletes, so marvelous in their intricacies, tend to prove the existence of an intelligent designer, then surely the brains of our great scientists tend to prove the existence of an intelligent designer, as well?

Now lets get circular with this. If the brains of great scientists, say Charles Darwin, lead the scientists to conclude that biological evolution is at work rather than an intelligent designer, then don't we dishonor the creation of the intelligent designer by questioning the conclusion of the designer's creation?

It's clear to me now. Intelligent design is a crock because the great achievement of the designer proved it to be so.


Here's where Pharyngula takes apart the article with actual scientific knowledge.


Good lord, I don't know when, KK aside, I have read a more boneheaded article. Maybe the sports columnists should leave the science beat to someone else, ya think?

I think this should be in schools also.

Dumb, dumb, dumb. And that Einstein quotation looks bogus to me.
