Here’s Undeniable Proof of Intelligent Design

The game’s over, dear reader. After you read the latest post at the creationist blog of the Discovery Institute, you’re going to abandon your foolish Darwinism forever.

The Discoveroids’ new post is titled Laufmann: Billions of Ways to Die!, 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]:

Engineer Steve Laufmann, co-author with Dr. Howard Glicksman of Your Designed Body [Amazon link!], the new book from Discovery Institute Press [BWAHAHAHAHAHA!], explains a basic reality that evolutionary biologists overlook.

We couldn’t resist clicking on their Amazon link. Wowie — the price is only $25.95 for a vanity press book, and it has an incredible 474 pages. There are no customer’s reviews yet. You can be the first! And yes, Amazon has a “look inside” feature.

Okay, back to the Discoveroid post and the “basic reality that evolutionary biologists overlook.” They quote Laufmann, one of the book’s co-authors, who says:

“The message of our book is really simple: there are billions and billions of ways to be dead and a very, very few ways to be alive. And the very few ways to be alive require some special properties of the body without all those properties in place you’re not going to make it.”

Ooooooooooooh! That is brilliant! The Discoveroid post ends with a video we haven’t looked at, and then they say this:

That command is another link to Amazon. Okay, dear reader, we know you’re gonna buy the thing. When you do, tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya!

  1. Without the flagellum properties in place, bacteria wouldn’t be known as “God’s little motor boats.”

  2. There still is lacking description of a design which results in something approaching the complexity of even the simplest forms that life takes.

  3. If bats didn’t make a sudden appearance in the fossil record with their properties in place, they wouldn’t have been able to be “God’s precious little bird mammals.”

  4. Here’s a fact that engineers often overlook: there are billions of ways to be dead, and very few to be alive, true. But in a very big Universe, if there was only one way to be alive, something would be alive.

    So let’s not even consider the possibility that there may be more than one way to be alive. One is sufficient. And that way includes selecting for more success in being alive. That explains living things. Pushed a bit further, it explains consciousness. That is, it explains us.

    The mole offended the goddess when he denied the beauty of her evening star, because he could not see it. Laufmann and Glicksman are, collectively, that mole.

  5. God’s precious angels and demons, and indeed the gods themselves, prove that “ways to be alive” aren’t even necessary at all.

  6. To say that something requires such-and-such …
    is to limit the power of the agent responsible.
    Is not God omnipotent?

  7. C’mon, folks, a little credit where due: as Laufmann amply demonstrates, Creationism offers some novel ways of being Brain Dead…

  8. @TomS, Creationists are having a faith crisis. Why are ye fearful, O ye creationists of little faith?

  9. On the other hand…
