Intelligent Design is Stupid: Neil deGrasse Tyson


  1. Intelligent Design can be and is misunderstood... I don't think it's stupid... in its essence...
    Neil deGrasse Tyson is just another religious leader that is a moron who can't explain why bad things happen to innocent people and animals like him.... or why all powerful God would allow sufferings...

    1. Neil Tyson a moron? Lot of hutzpah there from Quest. I'll put Tyson's scientific credentials up against Quest's any day of the week.

    2. Intelligent Design can be and is misunderstood ...

      This is a tiresome, old refrain dribbled out by every IDiot on the planet, and it just doesn't make sense.

      Meyer is a clear and lucid writer. He says so, the Tute says so, his dust cover says so, even evolutionists don't quibble about Meyer's clear and lucid style. That was said of Signature and Doubt. Charles Marshall said the same thing: well-written.

      Same with Behe. He gets high marks for his authorship, writing style. Again, clear and lucid. He's written many popular books. When Behe wrote that two mutations must occur simultaneously and backed that up with a calculation based on simultaneously, it was clear and lucid. No misunderstanding what that meant. For Behe to come back and claim that's not what he meant to write, well, he should have written it clearly and lucidly in the first place. Only he did. He was simply wrong.

      Phillip Johnson, clear and lucid writing.

      Do tell, Quest, which ID proponent does not write clearly and lucidly (excepting Luskin who is a terrible and ponderous writer)? Who writes so poorly that ID is misunderstood?

      I just don't get it. If ID is so easy and clear to understand and the ID authors are clear and lucid writers, how can there be misunderstandings?

  2. a moron who can't explain why bad things happen to innocent people and animals like him

    On the contrary, he knows exactly why such things happen - 'cause the universe isn't made for our pleasure. It allows for survival of some life for limited periods of time more or less at random.

  3. The fraction of the volume of the observable universe containing breathable air is 10^-62.

    The universe is fine-tuned? Yeah, for hostility to life.
