We usually don’t do this, but here we’ll talk briefly about two separate posts at the creationist blog of the Discoveroids. Neither has an author’s byline.
Some look like miniature spaceships. Some look like tiny jewel boxes. Others look like miniature versions of shrimp. They constitute most of the biomass on the planet, regulate earth’s carbon and oxygen, and provide food for fish, birds, and blue whales — the largest animals to ever grace the earth.
Thrilling, huh? They continue like that, so we’ll skip everything until the end, where the creationism is unloaded on us:
We’ve taken a brief look at microscopic organisms with a big job: regulating the carbon and oxygen cycles of the whole planet. They’re implicated in nitrogen and phosphorus regulation as well.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! They don’t “regulate” anything, at least not the way someone sitting at a control panel fiddles with switches and dials to achieve some pre-determined outcome. They’re just organisms, doing whatever it is that such organisms do. The creationist gushing continues:
How did the earth get along before these amazing creatures “evolved”? Don’t ask the evolutionists, because they didn’t say.
We don’t say, because responding to nonsensical questions is supremely futile. This is the last of it:
Here’s what makes earth stand out from all the exoplanets that the Kepler spacecraft is finding. It’s not just water. It’s not just air. Only the earth, as far as we know, is filled with functioning creatures that do what they do because of complex specified information — the hallmark of intelligent design.
While you’re pondering that, we’ll move on to their next post: Book by Douglas Axe Shows the Key to Understanding Origins Is the “Design Intuition” — Pre-Order Now!
Axe is one of the Discoveroids’ intellectual giants. They refer to him as “Douglas Axe of Biologic Institute.” As we’ve mentioned before, the Biologic Institute is supported by Discoveroid grants. It’s their own captive research lab. The Discoveroids’ imitation of the accouterments of science has caused their “theory” of intelligent design to be described as a cargo cult.
Okay, here’s a bit of what the Discoveroids say about Axe’s new book, with bold font added by us:
In a new book, Douglas Axe of Biologic Institute turns this standard assurance on its head. In Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed [Amazon listing], Dr. Axe restores the place of intuition alongside intellect in considering the question of life’s origins.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh — intuition! [*End Drool Mode*] Let’s read on:
Throughout his distinguished and unconventional career, engineer-turned-molecular-biologist Axe has been asking the questions that much of the scientific community would rather silence. Now, he presents his conclusions in this brave and pioneering book. Axe argues that the key to understanding our origin is the “design intuition” — the innate belief held by all humans that tasks we would need knowledge to accomplish can only be accomplished by someone who has that knowledge. For the ingenious task of inventing life, this knower can only be God.
Okay, that’s sufficient. It’s good to see that the Discoveroids are making so much progress.
