Intelligent Design — The Video Game

For years, the Discovery Institute has struggled to gain acceptance for their “theory” that an intelligent designer — blessed be he! — created the universe, the Earth, life, and you. But success has always eluded them — until now.

Brace yourself, dear reader. It is apparent to your Curmudgeon that Intelligent Design is now fully accepted — and there is undeniable evidence that this is so. First we have Intelligent Design: An Evolutionary Sandbox, described by its creator, Sean Walton, as “A god game with fully simulated genetics and evolution.” The game’s official website says:

Intelligent Design is a sandbox god game with fully simulated genetics and evolution. You create species of plants, herbivores and carnivores, but once created you can only sit back and watch evolution happen. As your ecosystem develops you will build research stations to study your creatures. Research allows you to unlock genetic engineering abilities, which can lead to some really weird and unexpected consequences. Great power comes with great responsibility however, since when you start tampering with genetics it is hard to undo your mistakes…

In addition, Walton has posted the video which you can see above this post. It’s only a minute long — well worth your time!

Verily, this is the breakthrough the Discoveroids have been waiting for! As described in their founding manifesto, The Wedge Document, one of their Governing Goals was “To replace materialistic explanations with the theistic understanding that nature and human beings are created by God.”

One of their Five Year Goals was “To see the beginning of the influence of design theory in spheres other than natural science.”

And one of their Twenty Year Goals was “To see design theory permeate our religious, cultural, moral and political life.”

Now that this video game is a reality, no one can doubt that the Discoveroids are well on the way to achieving their dreams. We congratulate them on their momentous achievement.

    …But…but…how does new information get into the system if you can only sit back and watch? Who is going to intelligently tweak an innocent virus into full-blown Ebola?

    What on Earth has that trailer to do with reality? It looks like a pretty good instantiation of GIGO. One small correction, dear SC:

    We congratulate them on their momentous achievement.

    Should be :

    We congratulate them on their numinous achievement.

    It’s designed in from the beginning, you fool!

    Someone here posted a link to Genetic Cars simulator. Amazing how fun it is just to watch evolution occur. http://rednuht.org/genetic_cars_2/

  5. I suggest that this be reworded:
    he! – created the universe, the Earth, life, and you.

    “they! – designed nature, privileged Earth, designed life, designed Mankind.”

    If ever a post elicted a “huh? what the h$%#?” from me, this is it. Discoveroids really think that this silly game and videos are going to convince thinking people?

    No, thinking people aren’t the target for the DI’s schtick, nor for their fundraising. The DI’s cornucopia of alternative facts is aimed at intuitive goobers
