not done with having my attack on the 'intelligent design' would-have-you's, i found a link to creationdesign.org - if they weren't trying to brainwash kids with this nonsense, i'd be laughing.
um, as for all these scientists that the discovery institute are so fond of wheeling out as support for their ideas (not theories), my girlfriend, who is finishing up her phd (in ecological engineering) made a very good point. not one of them has ever been published in a review publication! you'ld think that after all these years and so many scientists, they would be able to muster a few important published articles in recognised scientific journals. if they want to be taken seriously, they'll have to do what every other grad student has to do: get their phd and get published in the journals that the scientific community relies upon.
think about that. all those scientists who are seeking to prove their ideas about intelligent design, cannot get their work published in a professional journal. or, as the intelligent design site says:
Over 400 Scientists Convinced by New Scientific Evidence That Darwinian Evolution is Deficient
perhaps these 400 scientists can get together to answer some questions i have:
"And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made".
- um; why exactly does god need to rest?
what did he do on that day off?
er, what has he done since then?
why are there no dinosaurs in the bible?
what about all the humans that lived b.c.? specifically, mary and joseph's ancestors. that seems a bit harsh to exclude them!
"And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul".
i thought we were all formed from the enrichment of the stellar medium, i.e. the heavy elements that can ONLY be formed from stars undergoing their violent death throes. oxygen included. no mention of anything dying in genesis.
why is there no mention of a molten earth? water?, yes. earth? yes. hm; if the earth wasn't molten, how come there's a huge solid core of iron at the centre of the earth (surrounded by a liquid outer core of iron).
no liquid molten iron, no magnetic field. no magnetic field, no protection from the cosmic rays. no protection from the cosmic rays... it's not looking good.
blah, blah, blah..
