Discoveroids Make Stunning, Shocking Discovery

Thia one will totally amaze you if you haven’t heard about it before. We wrote about it six months ago — see Discovery Institute Claims They Discovered God. As we said then:

Wowie! The identity of the intelligent designer — blessed be he! — has been established! All these years we’ve been following the Discoveroids’ research, and we never dreamed it would come to this.

Today they’re posting about it again at their creationist blog. It’s titled Change the Nation’s Conversation: Pre-Order Stephen Meyer’s Return of the God Hypothesis, and it was written by Klinghoffer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

If you’re like me, you are watching current events unfold with a mix of dread and agitation. You are fascinated, can’t take your eyes off it. And yet you wish that somehow, someone would change the conversation entirely to something profound and positive. What’s needed is a source of hope. [So true!] Well, relief is at hand, or almost so.

Ooooooooooooh — relief is at hand! Then he says:

The important new book from philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, due out on March 30 this year, is available for pre-order now on Amazon. It’s Return of the God Hypothesis: Three Scientific Discoveries That Reveal the Mind Behind the Universe, in which Dr. Meyer turns the rigorous scientific argument for intelligent design from biology and abiogenesis to the origin and structure of the cosmos.

The “scientific argument” for intelligent design can be used for so many things! Klinghoffer tells us:

He goes further by showing, for the first time in his writing [The first time!], that the scientific evidence points not just to a generic designer but to the transcendent deity known from Western religious tradition. [Gasp! It’s Yahweh!] I can tell you that a huge amount of work and research went into this book. It is going to be huge.

We never would have imagined that the Discoveroids’ scientific research would lead them to this. It’s really amazing! Klinghoffer continues:

The book is not just a source of comfort or inspiration when the country, and the world, needs it most. In the context of our culture, which invokes “science” to defend an increasingly dark and anti-human vision, it’s also a battle cry. It will be resisted.

Yes, those Satanic Darwinists will resist Meyer’s brilliant conclusion. Anyway, Klinghoffer doesn’t say much more — except to urge us to pre-order the book, so we’ll leave him here. But we’re going to have a difficult time dealing with Meyer’s conclusion. It’s so unexpected!

  1. If the origin and structure of the universe is the work of the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent supernatural, then there is no work to be done in abiogenesis or cladogenesis.

    “The book is not just a source of comfort or inspiration when the country, and the world, needs it most.”

    Yeah, ‘coz we all look to America and people like Meyer, with his new book, to save us. Long live exceptionalism, and generic designer (who is really the transcendent deity known from Western religious tradition) bless America!

  3. “the rigorous scientific argument for intelligent design”

    Whoops! It’s no longer ID if you admit that the “Designer” is Yahweh! That’s Creationism, the claim that you guys were supposed to keep hidden.

    Morons …

  4. Is that the same Meyer who tells us that there are two concepts of science?
    The same Meyer who wanted Trump to recruit a “Red Team” to combat Covid-19? https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/14/trump-needs-to-recruit-a-medical-red-team-to-challenge-lockdown-manic-governors/
    And he calls himself philosopher of science. Should rather be propagator of pseudoscience.

  5. “the scientific evidence points not just to a generic designer but to the transcendent deity known from Western religious tradition.”

    It would appear that the DI thinks that Meyer has found the Holy Grail – evidential proof of the existence of God. Or at least Klinghoffer thinks that.

    Note, please, that the claim is not just logical demonstration from proposition and axiom, a la Aquinas. This demonstration is from evidence, says Klinghoffer.

    I shall await the moment when all will be revealed, as the Bishop said to the Actress. But like His Lordship, I shall be prepared for disappointment.

  6. For an expert on semantics.
    Is Yahweh part of Western religious tradition?

  7. TomS: A “transcendent deity” is. Calling Him “Yahweh” is not.

    I am somewhat of two minds as to whether this transcendence is a Western invention. I do tend to think that the specific position that God is beyond all human understanding and experience was at least greatly developed by Christian theology, working on ideas that go far back into classical times. The Athenians, we are told, (not only by Paul) had an altar to the Unknown God, whose name and nature is mystery.

    I see in the OT only hints at transcendence – Isaiah 55:9, for example. Most actions and words of Yahweh are only too understandable. This is a God who is jealous, racist, impulsive, cantankerous and crotchety. He likes to walk in a garden in the cool of the evening and enjoys the smell of roasting meat. He can be argued out of violence, and provoked into a dick-measuring contest. He changes His mind, sometimes. That is, He seems, like most gods, to be ourselves writ large.

    So, on the whole, I’d say a transcendent deity is largely a Western invention as well as a Western tradition, and Yahweh is not that deity.. Therefore, Yahweh is not part of Western religious tradition.

  8. “Dr. Meyer turns the rigorous scientific argument for intelligent design from biology and abiogenesis to the origin and structure of the cosmos.”
    But well he or another IDiot take that argument to the functionality of superconductivity at relatively high temperatures? Open your eyes, Kclinckelcklapper, you can observe the Hand of God at so many places! Like here:

  9. “I can tell you that a huge amount of work and research went into this book. It is going to be huge.“
    A rather huge amount of Discoveroid poo? Pooper scoopers sold separately.

    Having such a lengthy time period to preorder this book leads me to think the DI has a warehouse full of previously published books they couldn’t sell. Or have taken to the dump.
