This is another cookie-cutter article from the neo-theocrats at the Discovery Institute‘s creationist public relations and lobbying operation, the Center for Science and Culture (a/k/a the Discoveroids, a/k/a the cdesign proponentsists).
The title is DNA Repair Under Stress, and it has no author — that is, it’s unsigned. Thus we can attribute this “discovery” to the entire Discoveroid crew. As you’ll see, it follows a very predictable formula that goes like this:
We won’t spend much time on this one because we’ve posted about articles like this so often before, but here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
DNA repair: The more we learn, the more complicated it gets.
Oooooooh — it’s complicated! Let’s read on:
[S]cientists are constantly uncovering layers of complexity and integration within the DNA repair system that seem to defy any notions of having developed by a random, step-by-step process.
Yes, “layers of complexity and integration” are seen that “seem to defy” any hope of a natural explanation. At this point, dear reader, it should be obvious that Discoveroid “science” is entirely based on poor old William Paley’s 1802 theological argument, the watchmaker analogy. We continue:
DNA repair systems behave as if a command center has notified the cell of damage to DNA, and then the cell dispatches the appropriate units for the particular job at a particular location. … Another way to think of it is a basketball coach who knows exactly what player to put in not only for a particular play, but against a particular opponent.
Enough pre-scientific babble for the moment. Are the Discoveroids talking about anything in particular? Yes, their predictable response is a reaction to this, published in Science: SIRT6 Promotes DNA Repair Under Stress by Activating PARP1.
We’ll spare you the Discoveroid “analysis” because it’s always the same. Instead we’ll jump to their final sentence, which will not surprise you:
This level of organization and specificity makes SIRT6 look like the right tool designed for the right job.
There it is, dear reader — another splendid example of the evidence for intelligent design. Why — oh why! — do the “Darwinists” suppress Discoveroid “research” and refuse to allow this and so many similar weaknesses of evolution theory to be taught in public school science classes?
