This is a short one from the Discovery Institute, but it’s powerful! The title is Inside the Cell: The Closer You Look, the More Remarkable It Is.
Ooooooooooooh! It’s remarkable! This Discoveroid blog post was written by — oh, there’s no author’s by-line. We’ll give them all credit for it. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
On a classic episode of ID the Future [Wowie, another Discoveroid podcast!] , CSC Senior Fellow Dr. Ann Gauger [a/k/a “Annie Green Screen”] talks with host Sarah Chaffee [whom we call “Savvy Sarah”] about a paper in the journal Cell, and how it seems that the more we look, the greater the order is that we find.
For the curious, this is Savvy Sarah’s bio page at the Discoveroids’ website. And Annie Green Screen is a “senior research scientist” at the Discoveroids’ Biologic Institute. Annie’s work is so sensitive that the interior of her lab must never be seen by outsiders. You can read all about that in Klinghoffer Defends Photo Trickery.
What about the article published in Cell? The Discoveroids don’t provide us with a link, so we have no idea what they’re talking about. Let’s just continue with their post:
She [Annie Green Screen, presumably] discusses a critical transition in embryo development, a compound that aids this transition, and the origins of this compound.
Ooooooooooooh! A compound that aids in embryonic development! How exciting! What do the Discoveroids say about it? Brace yourself, dear reader — here it comes:
According to Gauger, this order may point beyond neo-Darwinian processes. [Gasp!]
Beyond Darwinian processes? Ooooooooooooh! Your Curmudgeon hasn’t been this excited since … we can’t remember. We’re completely overwhelmed by this evidence of Oogity Boogity!
The Discoveroids end with this:

We’re stopping now because we need a few minutes to recover from this emotional experience.
