Design Paradigm, the weblog of the Cornell
Creationist Awareness IDEA Club, has a post for the first time in months. Where do they start off? With the standard creationist fare, they start off with a question:
We’ve heard over and over again from the Darwinist side of this debate that ID offers no novel predictions. Intelligent design actually offers many intriguing and novel predictions (you can head over to ResearchID.org to see some of them), but what about Darwinism?
I would love it if some of our commentators or readers would offer what they think are predictions of Darwinism. The definiton of Darwinism that we’ll use is the following proposition:
“The origin and diversity of life has occured solely by undirected processes such as natural selection.”
How about the changes in selective pressures and gene frequencies in any of thousands and thousands of species that have been studied just since the advent of genetic sequencing, for starters?
So the questions that are more interesting to me are: Has ‘Wulfgar’ ever bothered to crack open a biology textbook? How profound is his ignorance of biology? Or, is he being willfully ignorant – that is, is he intentionally being deceiptful?
The jury is out on that one.
PS – Why lie and pretend that ResearchID.org has testable predictions? Where is the molecular ‘footprints’ of the creator? We’ve certainly found molecular evidence for selection, which they would know, if they ever bothered to learn anything about biology.
PPS – Why should any biologist feel the need to address such ignorance? Is addressing it at all worth our time, as biologists, when there are more interesting (not to mention real) questions that deserve our attention?
I simply have zero patience for such profound ignorance. Grrr…
PPPS – And one more – Allen MacNeill has also been dousing the Cornell
