Commentary on the so-called Creation/Evolution/Intelligent Design Debate and Right-Wing nuttery in general - and please ignore the typos (I make lots!)

Wow - 'Looney' goes off the deep end...

I've been enjoying watching Looney flail and squirm and avoid addressing issues both here and at his own blog. But this - this is just too rich...


Smokey, much of the problem here is that Darwinists have projected the supernatural, intelligent design capabilities of God onto inanimate genetics.
Thus, you must attribute supernatural powers to genetics (while denying such), which I don't.This is why we have a problem with young engineers thinking that they will be able to do amazing things with GA.
They are superstitious, unlike us more practical and worldly fundamentalists.



Emphasis mine. Wow....
Looney has made a couple more posts at his blog which are unintentionally hilarious, and I will deal with them in short order.

I stand by that claim: The new young engineers believe GA is superior to classical optimization in every way. This is a direct consequence of the teaching they receive in schools regarding the power of Darwinism. They are very superstitious.

"Darwinism".

Please give a definition.

Then if you believe that God designed your immune system, since He used a GA as its foundation, you're smarter than God?

Heya, thanks for the link to the shallit paper on dembski. I had not read it before, though I had already concluded that Dembski's contributions to science and mathematics were far less than his contributions to religion. Shallit's piece is utterly devastating.
