Intelligent Design — The Next Level

We have often wondered what would become of creationism — including its cloaked incarnation known as Intelligent Design. For example, see: The Future of Creationism.

But today, dear reader, we have seen the future. At a website called UFO Digest we read Human DNA Reveals That We Are Someone Else’s ‘Property’. It’s written by Paul Schroeder, of whom we know nothing, but we think he’s the same man who wrote this about his UFO abduction.

With that introduction, dear reader, let us — ahem!probe Schroeder’s article in UFO Digest to see what we can learn. Here are some excerpts, with bold added by us:

God is responsible for the spiritual entities within our bodies, and more likely, aliens are the most likely candidates for the geniuses behind the amazing nanotech DNA which designs our life form physical bodies; there is no argument required.

Quite right. Let’s read on:

There are many predominant planets whose entire intelligent life forms are spiritual entities who have no physical DNA required to house such a spirit being. Our physical world is an anomaly, by virtue of the sheer numbers of many such noncorporeal worlds, by comparison.

How true! We continue:

Does human DNA reflect a computer code, an alien nanotech, and thus the not so hidden hidden fingerprint of a “Creator”? Scientists have found that our genetic code has all of these key elements. “The coding regions of DNA,” expostulates Dr. Stephen Meyer, “have exactly the same relevant properties as a computer code or language” (quoted by Strobel, p. 237, The Case for a Creator, 2004)

He’s quoting (second-hand) the words of Stephen C. Meyer, author of Signature in the Cell. More importantly, Meyer is vice president of the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s infamous Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).

Not only that, Meyer was a central figure in the notorious peer review controversy; and as we reported here, Meyer was one of three creationist “experts” who were on the 6-member panel selected by Don McLeroy to testify before the Texas Board of Education regarding standards for science education.

It is therefore of extreme significance that this article in UFO Digest is citing Meyer as a scientific authority. It’s a clear sign that the Discoveroids are getting their message out to all the right people. Here’s more:

Could evolution in itself have progressively come up with a nanotech system like this? It is difficult to fathom, but the quantum of information in our human DNA is roughly comparably equal to 12 sets of The Encyclopedia Britannica-an amazing 384 volumes worth of detailed data that would fill 48 feet long of required library shelves.

Wow — he said “quantum”! Then he quotes Michael Denton, author of Evolution: A Theory in Crisis. Denton was a big influence on and a “senior fellow” with the Discoveroids. Denton allegedly said:

God is responsible for spiritual entities within, aliens are the geniuses behind nanotech DNA which is our physical bodies. Most planetary intelligent spiritual entities need no physical DNA to house a being.

Again, we can see how powerfully the Discoveroids are influencing important contemporary thinkers like those at UFO Digest. This must be very encouraging to them and also to their financial patrons.

We’ve barely begun to work our way through this impressive article. It’s much too long for us to describe adequately. The best we can do from here on is to give you a few more scattered excerpts, which we’re certain will encourage you to click over there to read it all for yourself. Here you go:

Michael Behe, a biochemist and professor at Pennsylvania’s Lehigh University, explains that DNA genetic data is primarily an instruction manual.

[…]

We therefore have in our human genetic code an huge complex instruction manual that appears to have been eloquently designed by a more highly intelligent source than mere human beings.

[…]

The DNA molecule is the most efficient information storage system in the entire universe. The immensity of complex, coded and precisely sequenced information is absolutely staggering. The DNA evidence speaks of intelligent, information-bearing design.

At the article’s end we find this, which we assume was added by the editors to describe the author:

Abductions and their remnant elusive memories have opened all this for Paul, a confirmed atheist, until he saw aliens float him out of his body, in his bed, at night. Then, he knew that they were interested in an essence he never suspected that he had; a soul.

In conclusion, it is your humble Curmudgeon’s opinion that this article by Paul Schroeder, UFO abductee, signals the next step in the development of Intelligent Design theory. This is where the Discoveroids’ research is pointing. We have probed the future, and we have learned The Truth.

  1. And the evilutionists said that nothing of value comes from ID.

    I’ll bet that you’re revising your opinion of Meyer and the groundbreaking DI even as I write this.

  2. I think someone should check up on what kind of mushrooms he “hunts.”

  3. So, what you’re saying is that a UFO nutter is quoting creationist nutter Strobel who is quoting intelligent design creationist nutter Meyer.

    Whoa, it’s turtles all the way down!

  4. With a citation in UFO Digest, I must concede that ID has finally achieved peer review.

  5. Doc Bill says: “Whoa, it’s turtles all the way down!”

    But you must admit, the UFO abductee has written a penetrating analysis.

  6. “The coding regions of DNA,” expostulates Dr. Stephen Meyer, “have exactly the same relevant properties as a computer code or language”

    This is what I find amusing, statements like this that rely upon nothing but extreme and illegitimate reductionism to find computer codes, languages, and DNA all to have the “same relevant properties.” Unsurprisingly, they’re all quite different in fact, DNA being rather more different from artificial languages (computer codes) and natural languages than the two are different from each other, both in mechanism and in function.

    But oh, it’s those horrible “Darwinists” who are the reductionists, while they’re lovely holistic people who simply recognize that DNA and computer codes have the “same relevant properties” (like what? DNA often doesn’t even reflect logic any more than any other physical object/process).

    Who except UFOlogists would try to do anything with “ID science”? After all, the IDiots don’t even care about doing science (other than to try to trash evolution, not much of that even), real science wouldn’t be able to do anything with it, and UFO nuts would realize that ID really is a kind of “Frankenscience,” grossly mechanistic and reductionist in logic, if not in purpose.

  7. Shades of L Ron Hubbard in there somewhere? Maybe he can add a love story and sell it to the movies.

  8. I wonder if the aliens expelled him from his body before he believed in ID, or after.

  9. Paul was a confirmed atheist?

    Funny, I thought he was a Greek Jew who persecuted Jewish Christians for being heretics against the Jewish faith…

  10. Oooh! Paul Schroeder… D’oh!

    I got discombobulated by all the woo.

  11. LRA says: “Oooh! Paul Schroeder… D’oh!”

    The other Paul got abducted on the road to Damascus.

  12. Abductions and their remnant elusive memories have opened all this for Paul, a confirmed atheist, until he saw aliens float him out of his body, in his bed, at night. Then, he knew that…
    …he really shouldn’t have taken the brown acid.
