Dear God, keep your day job.......
Don Wise, professor emeritus of geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, is the nation's foremost proponent of ID. No, Wise isn't getting ready to testify on behalf of the school board in Dover, PA. Rather, he advocates for a different version of the acronym: "incompetent design."
Wise cites serious flaws in the systems of the human body as evidence that design in the universe exhibits not an obvious source of, but a sore lack of, intelligence [...]
The thing that perhaps is closest to all of us is our own skeleton, and there are certainly all kinds of stupidity in our design. No self-respecting engineering student would make the kinds of dumb mistakes that are built into us.
All of our pelvises slope forward for convenient knuckle-dragging, like all the other great apes. And the only reason you stand erect is because of this incredible sharp bend at the base of your spine, which is either evolution's way of modifying something or else it's just a design that would flunk a first-year engineering student.
Look at the teeth in your mouth. Basically, most of us have too many teeth for the size of our mouth. Well, is this evolution flattening a mammalian muzzle and jamming it into a face or is it a design that couldn't count accurately above 20?
Look at the bones in your face. They're the same as the other mammals' but they're just squashed and contorted by jamming the jaw into a face with your brain expanding over it, so the potential drainage system in there is so convoluted that no plumber would admit to having done it!
So is this evolution or is this plain stupid design?
William S Borroughs said about God "that asshole doesn't know what buttons to press or what happens when you push em."
And as far as teeth go, I was told just the other day to act more Senatorially and watch my mouth, but I have blind teeth.
Hey, what would Christ answer to the fact that Christmas was redacted from a pagan celebration that freed slaves for a few days, and into the current commercial profit making Righty corporate fun-season reaping at least 30% of all corporate profits for the entire year???
But I digress. Back to the big bang and Darwin.
There is nothing wrong with businessmen turning a profit. Pinko
As for the pool-o-fuego, yeah, I'll bring my suit.
