TOKYO -- The Intelligent Design (ID) theory that advocates the involvement of an intelligent designer in the origin and evolution of the universe and life is gaining popularity in the United States. This is an indication that an increasing number of people, including scientists, have become aware of the shaky ground on which Darwin’s evolutionary theory stands.

There have been quite a few books critiquing Darwin’s evolution theory. But it was “Icons of Evolution – Science or Myth?” —authored by American biologist Jonathan Wells and published in 2000—that perhaps has had the greatest impact on the debate.  In it, Wells reveals the widespread distortions in biology textbooks explaining evolution.. . .

. . .“My goal,” says Wells, “is to bring about the collapse of Darwin’s evolution theory by 2009, the 150th anniversary of publication of Charles Darwin’s “The Origin of Species” in 1859.

Puzzled by the seemingly anachronistic tone of the article ("The Intelligent Design (ID) theory ...is gaining popularity in the United States."), I looked into the credibility of this source. Sure enough:

After the Discovery Institute put their foot in their mouth(s) with their Wedge Document timetable for the 'defeat of materialism', you'd think these dimwits would have learned to quit saying over-specific things like 'Darwinism will be defeated by 2009'.

Oh well, if he's stupid enough to be a Moonie, we shouldn't be surprised that he's stupid enough to think he'll make Darwinism 'collapse' in 3 years.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that when 2009 comes, Jonathan wells will suddenly declare that Darwinism has collapsed, and declare victory for himself and defeat for Darwinism.

Well, the World Peace Herald sure didn't include my comments on that article. (Just as well, since the scoring system doesn't offer any choice less than 1.)

We should trumpet the "Dead by 2009" far and wide, as well as Dembski's "Evolution dead in 10 years" (well, 9 1/2 now) and "Nobel Prizes for ID in 15 years" gaffes. These dorks count on the American people to forget, in order to play upon ever-present resentments and a perpetual sense of underdoggedness (a term I just made up). I say, keep these "promises" in the public eye, so that eventually people will squint at it: "Hey, isn't evolution supposed to be dead by now? What happened?"

If psychics have taught us anything it's that brining up old predictions will just cause backwards fitting and insane rationalizations by those who made them. I'm sure Wells will either claim it did collapse or that it would have if not for A and B and C happening...

A splendid collection, but for some reason I especially like this one:

 
Quote
1998

“Darwin gave us a creation story, one in which God was absent and undirected natural processes did all the work. That creation story has held sway for more than a hundred years. It is now on the way out. When it goes, so will all the edifices that have been built on its foundation.” William A. Dembski, “Introduction to Mere Creation,” in William A. Dembski, ed.,  Mere Creation, (Downer’s Grove, Ill.: Intervarsity Press, 1998), pp 13-30, p. 29


Ooooh, but these ain't bad, either:


Quote
1998
Of Evolution:

"In appearance it is as impregnable as the Soviet Union seemed a few years ago. But the ship has sprung a metaphysical leak, and that leak widens as more and more people understand it and draw attention to the conflict between empirical science and materialist philosophy. The more perceptive of the ship's officers know that the ship is doomed if the leak cannot be plugged. The struggle to save the ship will go on for a while, and meanwhile there will even be academic wine-and-cheese parties on the deck. In the end the ship's great firepower and ponderous armor will only help drag it to the bottom." Phillip Johnson, "How to Sink a Battleship," in William A. Dembski, ed.,  Mere Creation, (Downer’s Grove, Ill.: Intervarsity Press, 1998), pp 446-453, p. 453

“I believe that at some time well before 2059, the bicentennial year of Darwin’s ‘Origin of Species,’ perhaps as early as 2009 or 2019, there will be another celebration that will mark the demise of the Darwinist ideology that was so triumphant in 1959.’” Phillip Johnson, “How to Sink a Battleship,’ in Mere Creation, ed. By William A. Dembski, (Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1998), p. 446-453, p. 448


(my boldfacing)

I especially like "academic wine-and-cheese parties on the deck". WD's unsubtle pandering to his core audience of uneducated Jesus freaks who distrust all academics as effete atheist liberals. No wonder he works with Ann Coulter.

And you can almost hear his between-the-lines yelp:

"academic wine-and-cheese parties that no one invited ME to, goddammit! !"

In this witty allusion to the Titanic, Dembski seems to forget all the low class, expendable, "unwashed masses" (his pet phrase) who were locked in the lower cabins and went down with the ship.

Intelligent design will be triumphant when all the poor/working class people of the world are told, "Say two prayers and don't call me in the morning." If I thought Dembski would give an honest answer I would ask him, Do you care at all about people like me? And if he said no, I would ask him why.

He likes to count himself as one of the "unwashed masses," but I doubt that he grew up around people without health insurance or who had missing limbs and such, as I did. I am the first person in my family to get a college degree. I don't think he cocktail-waitressed his way through college and had to put up with the sexual harassment that goes with the job.

No one likes to talk about class in America and no one is talking about how this is a class war. Wine-and-cheese parties on the ship's deck, indeed! I'm doing okay for myself now, but I'm willing to bet they're awash in cash at the good old DI.

Well, the Titanic was not a warship and thus did not possess great firepower or heavy armor to drag her to the bottom.  A Bismarck metaphor would probably be more appropriate inasmuch as it was a warship and it also allows the allusion to Darwinists as Nazis.  Just saying.

Ah, my apologies to both Dembski and the Titanic.

I still wonder what comes after this supposed "death" of evolutionary theory, though.

We know what they're against. What are they for? Water and bread crusts in a dinghy?

They're not "for" anything.  There's no way to test for the designer so they have to be content to disprove ToE as evidence of design.  The thing that really confuses me given the fact that some of these people are actually intelligent individuals is that even if they bring down ToE which must be done using scientific methods they're still no closer to proving the existence of a designer which cannot be done using scientific methods (or at all).  You'd think they would at least be able to see that even if the did disagree with ToE.  That, to me, is what stinks so much of "agenda".

Um... Steve.  Are you quietly asking if Kristine is one of my sockpuppets?

That's too funny, and you're paranoid.  My two girls don't post here, although they're big fans.

Janie once wondered why that is, btw.  After all, SHE didn't break any rules, I did.

Kinda hard to argue with her point...

Anyways, Kristine is quite real.  Well, at least as real as anyone else on the web.  I've certainly never had cause to doubt that she is who she says she is.  Her very lovely blog, Amused Muse, can be found here.

My girls send their love, though.

Well someones's sock puppet.  She talks about sex and orgasms a lot which could be Kristine's "Korporal Kate", and she apparently has "designs" on Dembski which could be an attempt to entrap an ID big wig.  There was a certain amount of publishing-in-a-minor-journal so that I could claim credit for the exposé  if I somehow turned out to be right - or just let it go unnoticed if not - on my part. I didn't really think I was right about that, but nonetheless slightly worried about the possibility of complaints about cover blowing etc.

Well, you got me thinking, so I did some digging and googling, and if Kristine is not who she says she is, she's done a #### of a lot bigger and more convincing job than I EVER did with Janie.  She's got several blogs, her own top level domain name, shows up pretty solidly in several community activity type sites around her home town, etc. and each one links to another piece of her online persona, and eventually you wind up at Amused Muse....

She's also a regular commenter at PZ's place, and has been for quite a while (like over a year).

I'm willing to bet the farm that Ms. Kristine is exactly who she says she is.

All her pertinent information can be found if you look for it, rather easily enough.  I hesitate to collect it all here in one place for privacy reasons, and out of respect for someone who has come to be a good friend of the girls.

Just so y'know.

WHAT?!

I go to class (College of St. Catherine, Intro to Library Science, 701) and my existence is questioned? No way. I introduced everyone in class to Ms. Dewey tonight! (I'm their weird techno geek girl.)

I appeared in this film

And this one. (It's pronounced Butte, not butt, BTW. Someone actually called it butt.)

August Berkshire of MN Atheists has seen me, too.

I used to write book reviews.

And Rev. Barking Nonsequitor has met me! Ask him! I'm supposed to sing in his upcoming skit.

####, dudes! Are you kidding? Want me to come over there and friggin' dance for you? (Oh, yeah--that's what you probably wanted me to say. Okay, I'm naive. A certain lurker is probably laughing his ass off right now too. Well, if he's good he'll get a belly gram too, someday. If he wants one. I'll never make Playboy!;)

And I don't talk about orgasms that much! I'm a doer.

And I think Dembski's a cutie-pie. But I already live with a cutie-pie. Are you a cutie-pie, Steve_h? What do you look like? Are you real? Hey! I demand proof! :p

And that's a laugh, BTW. Dembski is married and from what I've heard of Mrs. Cutie-Pie, the minute she steps into a room that I'm in no one is going to look at me anymore. I haven't seen her, but Wes says she's pretty.

HAH!  I just asked her what she knew about "intelligent design", to which she replied

"You seem downright flummoxed".  Too funny.

Then I asked about the missionary position...

"I tried that with three friends once.... Let's just say my memoirs will fetch a million..."


She's more fun than a barrel of Intelligently Designed monkeys.

OK, just one more.

I asked, "What is the orbital distance of Saturn?"

Ms. Dewey replied, "In business, my philosophy is simple - Leave a little something on the table.  Of course, if he's cute enough, I'm the little something."

I'm not sure what that has to do with Saturn, but it was funny.

:D

Ms. Dewey caused a laughing-jag in class, but everyone (except for one guy) pronounced her "annoying." Said guy said: "Some of us like to be ordered around by hot babes with batons." There's always one.

Ms. Dewey is my sock puppet from now on.

Lou, did you see what your Ms. Dewey said about me?

Oh, you should have heard what she said when I asked her where she was coded...

"I think somebody needs to get a hobby.  Like... something interesting..."

and when I asked again...

"Ladies and gentlemen, in this corner weighing 157 pounds, the world's loneliest man!"

and again...

"Ones and zeros, ones and zeros... All the useless coding, underwear on your head, and you still couldn't create the woman of your dreams.  Poor you."


I like her.

I have to go now.  I just made a rather graphic offer to Ms. Dewey, to which she replied,

"Hey.  If you can get inside your computer, you can do whatever you want to me."

See ya'.

I'm not sure what that has to do with Saturn, but it was funny.


That could be a reference to Sun Ra.

:O  Now she's sharpening a big ole knife. "Let's get down to business." She doesn't like me, Lou, and I don't like her!

Oh, and PZ's met her in the flesh.

That pretty well settles that.

I guess it does. Sorry, Lou and Kristine.

No apology necessary to me, steve.  I suppose I've gotten everyone jumping at shadows, so it's really my fault.

If anyone owes an apology here, it's me, and I humbly offer it.

Kristine, I'll speak to Ms. Dewey and see if I can sort out the problem.  Perhaps if you offered to teach her to belly dance, the two of you could bond.

*Haploid naked dance*

But how come people don’t believe me until they check my boyfriend’s blog or PZ’s?

HUH? Shouldn’t evidence be gender-neutral?

Maybe you're just too good to be true?

Oooooh, smooth talk!

Anyway, no apologies needed—though of course, if you want to grovel, Amused Muse is accomodating. *Wiggles fingers to indicate “more compliments”* Assume the position.

But I must leave you gents for a while…my take-home final, my final paper, and my presentation are all due this Saturday…gotta work. And thank you for the link to the article on Wells, whoever that was, and whatever thread that was (augh, mindfart). I’m referencing the article in my paper.

Ta ta! :D

I can't say, since *I* am not real.

I gave Ms Dewey 'Ted Haggart' and she pulled out  'The Kama Sutra' opened a page and then turned the book upside down, downside up, twisted her head etc.

.....too funny
