Transcript - May 4, 2006 - Intelligent Design
Good morning Sports Racers, it's Thursday May 4.
Let's cut the crap and get right to knowledge.
S-s-s-something from the comments:
- "okay, so what the heck are you doing in france?"
Today I slept 'til 1:30 and then I went for a walk.
All the latest fashions are on the promenade.
Men's clogs are making a comeback.
Then I went to the beach to see some breasts.
The private beaches have lots of little grains of sand.
The poor people beaches have fewer but bigger grains of sand.
Evolution says our distant ancestors crawled out of the sea to live on land. (wistfully)I think we miss those days.
Lots of people don't believe in evolution.
According to a CBS poll, over 55% of Americans think that god created humans in their present form.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they'd like creationism taught in public schools.
Some people think that using public funds to teach creationism would be in violation of the establishment clause.
The constitution says that
- "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."
Intelligent design uses the language of science to simultaneously debunk evolution and provide scientific-sounding theories to support creationism.
The President has said
- "I think that part of education is to expose people to different schools of thought. You're asking me whether or not people ought to be exposed to different ideas -- the answer is yes."
Mr. President: should people or should people not be exposed to different ideas?
What I think the President means is that we're not represented by one star and one stripe but by many stars and many stripes all coming together to form a box inside which we're free to think.
William Dembski is a scientist that supports intelligent design.
He seems just like other scientists in that:
- he uses a lotta cool little symbols
- I have no idea what he's saying
- and I probably wouldn't pick him for my dodgeball team
Dembski's theory of specified complexity says that life is far too complicated to have come from what he calls
- "... the random processes of evolution. Anything as complicated as life must have been designed by a designer."
For example William Dembski's name was designed by his parents.
The chances of those letters randomly coming together to form his name are miniscule.
That's about the same odds as a turdurken -- a de-boned duck inside a de-boned chicken inside a de-boned turkey -- appearing by accident.
Only an intelligent being could have created a turdurken.
According to Dembski, turdurkens are kind of proof that god exists.
And that's all the matters today.
This is Ze Frank thinking so you don't have to.
This car looked like it was smelling the other car's ass.
