Things are really slow out there. News of The Controversy is virtually non-existent. Hambo is babbling about his ark, and the Discoveroids are — well, you won’t believe this — they have a ridiculously long article about our body’s ability to control its temperature — Keeping Cool, Warming Up: Appreciating the Body’s Temperature Control System.
They discuss our temperature control systems for what seems like an endless number of mind-numbing paragraphs, and near the end they say:
Biochemist Michael Behe has described such a system, where the absence of any one part renders it useless, as irreducibly complex — a hallmark of intelligent design. The system our body uses to control its core temperature demonstrates irreducible complexity.
So we’re intelligently designed. Although they don’t say it, the same “reasoning” applies to apes, chimps, and almost all other mammals. Birds too. We don’t know if they intended this, but we’re left to conclude that other animals aren’t the result of intelligent design.
That’s all there is out there, so we have to entertain ourselves. Therefore, we hereby declare another Intellectual Free-Fire Zone. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, or even astrology, theology, mythology, and sociology — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
