Quote# 60475

For ID evidence: how do we get the sexes, sexual reproduction, organs, self-healing skin, hearts that beat for a lifetime without any external energy source, our computer-like brains, our eyes and the ability to see colors?

An anorexic fundie? That's certainly a first.

anti-nonsense

the heart DOES have external energy sources, namely food and oxygen.

As for the rest of you're list, such features are beneficial to organisms, and the survival of the species.

Sooooo....you don't eat, then? Why do you think food is vital to our existence, honey?

How is asking a question pass as evidence by even the lowest standard?

...Computer-like brains...?

Shirley, you jest.

Does anyone have the heart to tell them that our brains are not at all like computers?

"... computer like brains?"
Bitch, you don't know anything about brains OR computers.

How can anybody argue with the logic put forth by Barb's computer-like brain?

Re: the heart..

"It's still amazing --and designed --and empowered mysteriously. AND we can't really make one anywhere near as marvelous as the real thing. And even if we could, it would only prove that designers, creators, makers are behind everything that exists."

Never heard of heart failure Barb? Or is that gawds little joke?

So much intellectual fail condensed in 1 statement..

Barb does have a computer-like brain. Unfortunately, it's a damaged TRS-80.

I could start explaining how amazingly obvious it is that the possibility to see red evolved from the cells that detected green first, how that was benefital in discriminating ripe fruits from green ones, etc. but I'm sure it's just a waste of time.

No One

@Grigadil

Obviously, this fundie lacked a brain and stuck the contents of a 1980's computer in it's place. She is just getting a little confused I'm sure...

That's not ID evidence.

Argument From Ignorance. Just because you don't understand it doesn't mean god did it. Complexity is subjective.
Appeal to Emotion: you need to feel specially created in order to have some sort of self-worth.
Begging the Question: if life is complex, you bet your ass God is even moreso.
Non-sequitor: your conclusion just doesn't follow from the premises (complex > God > Jebus)

If we were created, we're support for Unintelligent design. Who the F would wire an eyeball backwards, give us these appendices, a useless tailbone, wisdom teeth, and worst of all, running the waste pipes right through the recreational area! Yep, we were designed by a complete dumbass.

If we don't have these thengs we die, and the individuals who do have these things take over.

Hearts that beat for a lifetime? Even worns have several, why do we only have one?

So, because you can't explain these things you think that is evidence for ID?

Barb, please step away from the science...
