The Blind Mind Maker
I'm still getting flack from the Friday Night Fight, I invite anyone who is literate to go over what was said, keeping in mind that someone giving "DNA" as an answer to the questions asked was, in fact, not giving an answer to the questions because that word isn't a magic formula. In order for "DNA" to be an answer to the question, what DNA does is kind of relevant to any possible understanding of it. Apparently for the sciency tag team of "Brain Trusters" you can give that as an answer while ignoring what DNA does and providing no explanation based on that as your answer.
If you want to bring the matter of heredity into the mix, which, one would think, was kind of, you know, relevant when the proposed answer to a question is "DNA" you can't, also, sidestep the matter of inherited traits and their expression in actual, living organisms. Which, apparently, is also to be ignored in explaining how "DNA" is an answer to those questions.
Yet I'm told I was the one who wasn't being honest about it when I wasn't even the one who gave "DNA" as a pat answer to those questions and could give some reasons for why it couldn't be.
Is there anyone more whiny than a stuck-up blog atheist who you won't just give in for?
If either those two or anyone else can tell me how "DNA" figures into how the atheist "brain-only" brain could make an idea before that idea existed anywhere in that brain to tell it what to make I'll post the answer. I'm not waiting up nights though.
Oh, and "you're a stupid head" isn't an answer to the problem, either. I'm talking to you Skepsy.
