I'd Hammer In the Morning ...
Abbie at ERV has a nice demonstration of why ID can never be science because, assuming as it does (no matter how much it denies it) that the "Designer" is omnipotent, ID can accommodate any result. In a post deliciously entitled "Having your Ford Pinto and Crashing it Too," she notes a new press release from the Biologic ("Press Releases Are Our Most Important Product") Institute:
The latest entry, written by 'staff' (aka Casey Luskin, Prince of Tits?), highlights how perfect biology is:
For decades enzymologists have recognized that certain enzymes are catalytically perfect--meaning that they process reactant molecules as rapidly as these molecules can reach them by diffusion. That hinted at a principle of physical perfection in biology, but no one anticipated its breadth until recently.
Although the Darwinian mechanism has some capacity to optimize, perfection seems to be well beyond its reach.
An enzyme is perfect. Darbinsnism cannot achieve perfection. Therefore, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior designed perfect enzymes.
This fuses perfectly with statements Luskintits made two years ago:
Was the Ford Pinto, with all its imperfections revealed in crash tests, not designed?
Pintos are shit cars. Pintos were designed. Therefore, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior designed shit enzymes.
Seriously, I'm missing the reference, and I suspect it's delicious.
