This one is so thrilling it will leave you writhing in ecstasy. We found it at the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute. Their title is Wonder of Water: Michael Denton at Bridalveil Fall, and it has no author’s by-line. 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 [Ooooooooooooh! A Discoveroid podcast!], geneticist and biochemist Michael Denton reads the beautiful introduction to his book The Wonder of Water [Amazon link]. Download the podcast or listen to it here.[Link omitted]
We posted about Denton and his book before — see Water Is Proof of Intelligent Design. According to Amazon, the publisher of Denton’s book is the Discovery Institute, so you know it’s good. And Michael Denton is a Discovery Institute “senior fellow,” so you can be sure he knows what he’s talking about.
Then they say:
He begins at Yosemite’s Bridalveil Fall and explores how water is curiously fine-tuned [It’s fine tuned!] for life. Indeed, thanks to a unique cluster of properties, water is able to fulfill many roles essential to our living planet.
Wowie — water is amazing! The Discoveroids tell us:
It’s thanks to some of those properties that rivers and streams can leech and carry minerals from rock to various places they’re needed in the biosphere.
That’s nice, but not particularly thrilling. What else is there? The Discoveroids’ post is very brief, so we’ve arrived at the final paragraph. Here it comes:
Water’s unusual properties also make it an ideal medium for our circulatory system. [Better than lead!] There it serves not only to transfer nutrients and oxygen but also to expel carbon dioxide, excess body heat, and waste products — again, thanks to a unique group of properties.
We are left stunned, gaping in wonder at brilliance of the intelligent designer — blessed be he! — for providing us with water. And best of all, it’s a miracle those Satanic Darwinists can’t explain.
