We found a devastating criticism of evolution at the Discovery Institute’s creationist blog: The “Exquisite Design” of Human Biology. It was written by David Klinghoffer, a Discoveroid “senior fellow” (i.e., flaming, full-blown creationist), who eagerly functions as their journalistic slasher and poo flinger. We’ll give you a few excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis.
There is a certain characteristic shallowness to the storytelling exercise that is evolutionary biology. Evolutionists spin a narrative about life’s history, about events that no one can or ever will witness.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Klinghoffer has embraced Hambo’s “Were you there?” rebuttal of evolution. Then he says:
They’re trying to explain how complex, functional living systems come into existence, and the imaginative tale-telling gets them out of having to grapple with what it takes, practically, for any complex living being to fight the battle of staying alive in the first place.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Contrast the pathetic failure of evolutionists with the exquisitely detailed narrative of the Discoveroids, which precisely explains how the intelligent designer — blessed be he! — accomplished the miracles they attribute to him. Klinghoffer tells us:
Evolutionists don’t worry much about how living things work, the irreducible complexity of it [Hee hee!], or how other complex systems work, either. For insights on function you have to go to physicians – and engineers. That’s a point underlying much of the writing done by two of our contributors, Steve Laufmann and Dr. Howard Glicksman.
Klinghoffer provides a link to a podcast by those two geniuses. Then he gushes about what they say:
All of biology displays a range of characteristics consistent exclusively with engineered systems. … Laufmann summarizes, listing 40 parameters that need to be satisfied for human life to go on at any moment: [quote omitted].
After listing those “parameters” — oxygen, red blood cells, kidney function, etc. — Klinghoffer shifts to another issue:
It’s true that theists must explain the existence of evil in the world, a problem that has resisted many tidy attempts at a solution. But atheists have a far, far greater challenge because they have to explain everything else – life, beauty, love, the cosmos, the full panoply of wonders around us.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Because Darwin failed to explain “beauty, love, the cosmos, the full panoply of wonders around us,” his theory is obviously worthless. Klinghoffer closes with this:
As evidence against design, they [evolutionists] can point to things in life that cause pain, cease to work properly, or don’t seem to serve a purpose at all (that we can currently identify). But then, pity them, they are saddled with explaining everything else.
That was a powerful indictment of evolution. Admit it, dear reader — Klinghoffer has presented an irrefutable argument.
