Like a musical group that has found its sound, the Discovery Institute has found its specialty. We first wrote about it back in May: Discoveroids: The Joy of Diarrhea. Now they have returned to the subject with an attention-getting title at their creationist blog: Brazilian Scientist Marcos Eberlin: More on Diarrhea by Design.
Pause for a moment to let that title play around in your mind: Diarrhea by Design. It really grabs ya, doesn’t it? Their blog post has no author’s by-line, so it’s attributable to all of them. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
On a new episode of ID the Future [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!], Andrew McDiarmid continues his conversation with distinguished [Distinguished!] Brazilian scientist Marcos Eberlin, author of close to 1,000 scientific articles and the Nobel laureate-endorsed Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose. [Published by the Discovery Institute.]
What did the distinguished Brazilian scientist say? The Discoveroid blog tells us:
Their topic again is the body’s surprisingly sophisticated, all-or-nothing system for flushing bad bacteria from our guts.
Wowie — the flushing system is “surprisingly sophisticated.” The Discoveroids continue:
It took foresight to solve all the problems involved; it took foresight even to make protein chemistry work in the first place.
And we’re all grateful for such an elegant solution to the problem. Let’s read on:
“Let’s listen to the data,” says Eberlin. “Let’s surrender to the evidence” — which points to intelligent design.
Of all the evidence the Discoveroids have blogged about during the time that we’ve been following them, this is the best they’ve ever come up with. There’s no doubt about it, dear reader, we are the product of an intelligent designer — blessed be he!
And now we come to the end:
