|You have just uncovered a catastrophic flaw in the amoral ontology of evolutionism. Since evolutionists deny the reality of consciousness in order to deny moral responsibility,|
Yeah, right. Just a flat-out lie, from an egregious liar.
|they completely erase the distinction between the animate and inanimate.|
Right, that's why we have biology. And of course we think that everything evolves just like life does:)
Btw, what really broke the stark separation between biology and chemistry was the demise of vitalism. Now we have plenty of cause to understand life as being different from machines, most notably evolution. You have none, which is why you and your kind resort to aliens/gods to make life like machines are made.
It's the IDists that suggest that life might be the result of intelligent aliens, in some sort of Frankenstein process. To be sure, they really think it's all God, but the sort of "design" they're claiming is that of machines. They even use the term "machine" used for parts of organisms as an argument that life was designed, since they actually think life is made up of machines.
Why don't you take a biology course, or at least learn not to shoot your mouth off about what you know so little--which apparently is everything.
|This idiocy usually manifests itself in a desire to reduce human beings to mechanical objects via behaviorism, stong AI, and the like.|
No, we're not the ones who are saying that organisms are "designed" like machines are. It is not we who insist that "machine" be taken in biology like it is in engineering. You're the mechanist, dumbass. Christ, you're a dim bulb!
|However they occasionally go the other way and attribute human sentiments to the inanimate--like the idea of "selfish" genes.|
You obviously don't understand the various meanings that one word can have. Try reading a little (Dawkins, especially), you know, one time without your rank prejudices getting in the way.
|This is the sort of charcterization we see regularly in fairly tales and nursery rhymes--"The dish ran away with the spoon", etc.--without the merit of being entertaining.|
Otoh, your mischaracterizations are entertaining, for their incapacity to deal with simple words properly in context, as well as your near-total incomprehension of biology.
|In their vain attempt to evade the true God of the Bible and construct a worldview based on their own autonomous reason, they have come to embrace the most primitive, superstitious animism.|
I suppose you have to love and believe your lie. Probably you're too old and stupid to learn anything about biology, though.
Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of coincidence---ID philosophy
