If you might wonder how piles of driftwood accumulating randomly on a shore and the organization of living, functioning, reproducing cells are supposed to be alike, count yourself among those who aren't privileged to share such Bright insights with P.Z. Myers, atheist blog celebrity.
I'm not making this up, you know.
P. Z. Myers, I'm no creationist and intelligent design as science is as absurdly asserted as atheist ideology as science is, but I've got enough respect for coherent, logical argument, not to mention the duty of someone who agrees to give a quasi-academic lecture to ACTUALLY PREPARE A COHERENT, LOGICAL ARGUMENT instead of throwing a bunch of crap into a Power Point program, to not say you've presented something less of both than the failed arguments of creationists.
What next? How a pile of junk lying inert in your office, give or take something getting put on it or falling on the floor, is like really slow metabolism and reproduction?
I'm looking around for the condemnation of other biologists for this and am finding not too much. In this you can see the danger of substituting atheist ideology for a rigorous separation of ideology and science. If scientists don't see the danger of this kind of thing becoming the public face of science they are either cowards or ideological dupes.
