Iranian designs

2005-08-10 15:19:19.90728+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

Dubya says that "intelligent design" should be taught in classrooms, and Donald Rumsfeld claims that Iranian weapons have been found in Iraq, although he's unwilling or unable to state how he knows that they're Iranian.

I think these two are related...

Dubya's argument requires an angelic equivalent (AE) of "Maxwell's Demons" that must track and control every elementary particle in the universe, and its interactions with all other particles in the universe. Or perhaps a metacontroller with separate threads for such oversight. Each AE or thread determining just the right time for say, a C14 atom to disintegrate to nitrogen and irrevocably change a piece of DNA for just the right mutation sequence.

To fit the requirements for another mutation, a whole star may have been manufactured by legions of such AE's, billions of years in advance of just the right instant to go nova, thus wafting off a high energy photon to travel untold distances to smack into the DNA of a rose and change its coloring from white to off white. Every mutation must have been planned as carefully as this.

Talk about predestination! Think about the computability requirements and complexity theory. More importantly, do we get to play with those computational capabilities when we get to heaven?

Do these people ever think anything through? Just such an incredible paucity of knowledge, logic, imagination, thought and follow through. But that is their defining characteristic.

Again: It's time to put an end to bad christian mythology restricting the thought processes of students in schools. I had hoped that ended with the inquisition.

The only thing related is blind ignorant rightousness and fuzzy thinking. It's time to stop tolerating both in our society. - I'll also bet there are American, Russian, Israeli, and other countries weapons in Iraq. But they only report and make an issue of what they want to make an issue of.

[sarcasm] In my gun safe is a Russian made clone of a Chinese rifle and a German pistol - just think of the implications. Obviously I am a pawn of their governments.[/sarcasm]

...particularly those insurgent groups that espouse religious extremism and draw manpower and support from abroad.

Are they trying to keep the evangelist-led (Bush) US troops from coming across from Iran?!?
