Once again, dear reader, we visited the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute, and look what we found. It’s titled Watch: Kid Explains Intelligent Design to His Dad, and it was written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Over the past weekend at our Dallas Conference on Science and Faith, YouTube video producer Joel Park [Ooooooooooooh! A YouTube video producer!] let us know about this: a video with his son Tor [That’s the kid’s name?] in which the young gentleman walks his dad through a detailed account of the arguments in Stephen Meyer’s Signature in the Cell.
Wowie — a kid named Tor is teaching Discoveroid stuff to his father. Then Klinghoffer says:
Get ready to be impressed. [We’re ready!] The kid is 14 years old [Gasp!] and it seems clear that he’s got a future ahead of him as a communicator. The father-son rapport is very cute, too.
The kid is almost guaranteed to become a Discoveroid Fellow! Klinghoffer continues:
They cover, among other things, what distinguishes intelligent design from creationism [That’s always been a mystery!], what information is and what forms it takes [Information? See Phlogiston, Vitalism, and Information!], what that has to do with DNA, what’s the difference between a deduction and an inference, the RNA World theory, panspermia, the multiverse [Gasp!], and more.
All that in one video? Amazing! Let’s read on:
The lucidity of the younger individual’s grasp of ID, his ability to concisely explain it, is quite something. Tor could probably help out in tutoring some adult ID critics I can think of.
That’s all there is to Klinghoffer’s post — except for an embedded video which is probably Tor’s lecture to his father. Go ahead, watch the thing. The kid may convince you to become a Discoveroid.
