We heard the blaring sirens and saw the flashing lights of our Retard-o-tron™, so we rushed to the computer and found it locked onto an article in WorldNetDaily (WND). It’s in their honor that our jolly buffoon logo is displayed above this post.
The Retard-o-tron™ had found an article titled Explaining ‘Darwin’s Doubt’. It’s a WND “Exclusive” by Jerry Newcombe, described as “the co-host of “Truth That Transforms with D. James Kennedy” (formerly “The Coral Ridge Hour”) and spokesman for Truth in Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries).”
The wonderful thing about this WND article is that it’s about something we’ve discussed before, most recently here: Stephen Meyer’s Book — How’s It Selling?
Yes, dear reader, it’s true — WND is jumping on the Discoveroids’ bandwagon with all-out praise for Stephen Meyer’s book, Darwin’s Doubt. They must be thrilled in Seattle. At last, their work is achieving the recognition it deserves. We don’t need to give you too many excerpts, but we’ll give you a few, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Every time I log into a computer and have to enter my password, I’m reminded of how impossible evolution is. One little mistake on the keypad and I can’t log in. There’s even a website where I seem to be in permanent “log-in purgatory.” I can’t log in ever. Granted, it’s operator error. But still …
What does that have to do with anything? Here it comes:
How does this tie to evolution? Because if evolution were true, then we are to believe a whole series of complex sequences managed to get everything right – repeatedly. To use a clichéd example: It would be like a monkey typing at random and coming out with the complete works of Shakespeare without any errors.
Wowie — Newcombe’s got a great point there! Just think — the whole genome had to be assembled perfectly, right from the start, with no errors! Then he says:
There’s a new book on evolution that is getting a lot of attention – and deservedly so. It is “Darwin’s Doubt” by Stephen Meyer. If you’re familiar with the topic, the subtitle is very clever – “The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design.”
We’re going to ignore all the gushing praise of the book. Wait — this is good:
This problem for Darwinism is not just in the fossils. The so-called missing links are still missing. But Meyer also notes, “It’s this deeper problem of coming up with a mechanism that explains complex animal life, especially in the wake of all the things we discovered in the last 50, 60 years in biology about the importance of information – digital code and other forms of information that are stored in DNA and elsewhere in the cell.”
Not only are all the missing links still missing — Warning: if you value your soul, don’t look at Wikipedia’s List of transitional fossils — but there’s also the mystery of where all that “information” came from. On that vital point, Newcombe quotes Meyer:
Meyer adds, “It’s just like in computer science. If you want to have a new function on your computer, you’ve got to have lots of code, lots of instruction. If you want to build these complex animal forms, we now know, you need information, you need instructions. And that’s the crucial question that is really creating an impasse in evolutionary theory. Where does that information come from?”
And then Newcombe wraps it all up with this magnificent line:
Oh, I get it – “In the beginning was the Word …”
So that‘s where the information came from! What a powerful ending! Now that WND is solidly supporting Meyer’s book, it won’t be long until all those pesky Darwinists are humiliated into silence. We’re delighted to see the different versions of creationism coming together at last.
