Not too painful yet, but I don't see where this is going or how it is relevant.

"Information is separate from the chemicals that are just the media for the information."

What?

"Only intelligence can generate information."

What?

"How can we believe that such complicated information could have generated randomly? "

What?



It is like their are a bunch of assumptions made that I am not aware of, things like DNA not being a chemical, DNA not holding genetic information, only intelligence being able to create information, that evolution is random.

Massive evolutionary leaps are observable anyway, it isn't as easy to spot in organisms with large reproductive cycles and few offspring, but in viruses for example massive mutations occur all the time and in a way and with a frequency that is completely supportive of evolutionary principles. In viruses these mutations are especially clear since if evolution didn't exist the genetic makeup of viral offspring should always be a replica due to the single parent organism. Any difference is pure random mutation, which is then tested by natural selection to see if the mutation is successful in the wild.

Anyway, this creationist trend is thankfully for me endemic to the US. In just about every other developed nation religious people are far more reasonable and wouldn't dream of suggesting that systematized knowledge is a bad thing. We should treat creationism as a social phenomena not a religious one.

The entire article is full of non-scientific assumptions made by someone who clearly thinks far too highly of their own deductive abilities.

No scientific paper has EVER started off by saying, "Assuming that..." because it immediately takes your credibility and flushes it down the toilet.

PFFT... that thread I started linking to a video of a monkey forcing a frog to give him deep throats proves evolution.

Monkey learns to masturbate with help of froggy... Monkey's friend sees this new found masturbation technique and quickly follows suit. Monkeys now know how to pleasure themselves with frogs. VOILA! Evolution my friend.
