    God of the Bible is not all loving.

    Those scenarios seem to assume the good natured Hindu girl gets the same punishment as Hitler. While the killer gets the same reward as mother Theresa. This is not so. On the day of judgement some people receive justice, some people receive mercy, but nobody receives injustice. Search the great...

    People should realize arguing against ID theory is saying they know more about science than The Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington or the Journal of Theoretical Biology. Other organizations, scientists, and random people on the internet can say it isn't science all they like...

    In case it sounded as if I implied you didn't read Darwin's Black Box, I believe you when you say you did. However, I'm shocked anyone could read Darwin's Black Box and assert "different versions" somehow disprove irreducible complexity

    Axe points out barnase and TEM-1 beta-lactamaseare become biologically inactive, showing how sensitive to changes the genome is. Which is contrary to "current view that functional constraints on sequence are minimal at these positions." What Axe found was how finely tuned the genome is. Which...

    All the evidence being cited shows the point of Discovery Institute. The entire point of ID theory is to advance science. They started by publishing in the peer reviewed journal the Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington. They continue to publish in peer reviewed journals and...

    Axe in 2000: "Contrary to the prevalent view, then, enzyme function places severe constraints on residue identities at positions showing evolutionary variability, and at exterior non-active-site positions, in particular. Homologues sharing less than about two-thirds sequence identity should...

    This is about as entertaining as watching conservatives trying so desperately to prove Biden is the most corrupt president ever. The idea any scientific theories governing goals is to establish a god is absurd. Laughable even. Yet, if you conflate ID theory with creationism, all of a sudden it...

    There's nothing unreasonable about thinking the courts decide legal matters while scientists decide scientific matters. History bears this out.

    Do you consider the big bang theory an argument for God? Even if people disagree with Behe, the fact is Behe presented separate cases for the theory and the implication of the theory. Behe says the implications of the theory are debatable, while the theory itself is empirically based. Whether...

    According to you a religious doctrine is making predictions about junk-DNA? Conflation sure causes some weird logic.

    ID theory describes observable phenomena, makes predictions, and has opened up new areas of research that were previously overlooked due to Darwin's influence. What matters is scientists take it seriously. What doesn't matter is people who have never actually read the books or peer reviewed...

    How do you define irreducibly complex? While these articles are fascinating to read, none provide provide a step by step process showing how photoreceptive cells are produced. The fact varying levels of complexity exist doesn't disprove IC. As Behe pointed out in Darwin's Black Box, the...

    Obviously you don't understand the difference between a theory and the implication of a theory. Is information theory an argument? Is germ theory an argument? Is the theory of evolution an argument? Is big bang theory an argument? Of course, the answer is no, none of those are arguments...

    Courts have ruled black people are property, corporations are people, and ID theory is creationism. Seems to me courts weigh in on legal matters and aren't a good source of truth. Considering: Black people aren't actually property, they are humans Corporations aren't actually people, they're a...

    Well, ID creationism isn't actually a thing so any discussion whether it's science or a tomato is moot. ID creationism is a mash up of two separate concepts. If conflation isn't a concern then married bachelors, square circles, and ID creationism exist. Not much point in discussing a married...

    Special creationism has as much to do with ID theory as aliens. Both can be seen as implications of the theory, but so what? The implications of a theory have no bearing on the validity of a theory.

    Theories can be improved or modified as more information is gathered so that the accuracy of the prediction becomes greater over time. It's how science works.

    I get you don't agree with the flagellum being irreducibly complex. But Behe pointed out: "To falsify such a claim, a scientist could go into the laboratory, place a bacterial species lacking a flagellum under some selective pressure (for mobility, say), grow it for ten thousand generations, and...

    This was a response to "the whole point of ID is to show that nature and people are created by God." While that implication is certainly part of it, this quote from Behe sums up the whole point of ID theory: "I don t want the best scientific explanation for the origins of life; I want the...
