Evidence for Intelligent Design Shot Down by Scientists (Really?)

The title of this article has me convinced! Okay, it doesn’t. It does, however, demonstrate the flawed logic that masquerades as science but is nothing more than pre-suppositional philosophy in action. The point the ID’ers make is not that the proteins that operate the chemical functions in a cell were not around before, or were used for something else. The point they make is that if you have 14 parts for a biological process to take place (blood clotting for example), science has no explanation as to how all 14 processes could come together at once (emphasis upon at once) to bring about blood clotting. One cannot get to blood clotting by a process of slow steps involving natural selection and mutation.

The article essentially tries to say that ID’ers claim that these proteins were never around. This is nothing more than a red herring. This is not the argument at all, but sure sounds good if your predisposed to (foolishly) believe in macro-evolution.

    Ben Stein did a movie about this very topic. It was pretty good and Biola had a short cameo in the file.
