I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody miss the point more entirely than the “Brites”.
As much as I love satire, that crap is satirical of strawman evolutionists. Just look at their “flagellum evolution” page. Do they honestly think that evolutionists would say the flagellum evolved from a grain of salt? And like I said, it misses the point of The Selfish Gene entirely. The flagellum does not evolve for the benefit of the survival instinct of a grain of salt, but the survival instinct would have evolved for the benefit of the genes. I’m finding it hard to believe that these
cdesign proponentists “Brites” read the book. Anybody who knows anything about evolution knows that natural selection only works on things that replicate themselves and pass on information without much error.
But, you know, there may be some truth to the simulation of Dembski evolving into a flagellum… I was wondering what happened to his brain.
One of their latest posts has another one of those crappy parody videos and says…
Humiliated by a demeaning rap video, their treatment after crashing prescreenings of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, and the growing popularity of the Wistar Polka, a pod of Brights was sighted protesting outside of the Stardom Multiplex Theater in Dallas, Texas where a prescreening of Expelled was being shown. This reporter believes the choreography to the tune “Darwin Does Dallas”, is more energetic and expressive than the Wistar Polka.
We were supposed to be humiliated by that? Wow, I really must be dumb in that case because… I was laughing my arse off.
Do the Expelled folks really have so few (poor) arguments that they’ve got nothing else to do but make jib jab videos? Why don’t they try making real arguments? Then they can make real satire and really funny jib jab videos.
But no… they’re just wrong. They haven’t got any arguments because they haven’t got any evidence because they haven’t got the truth on their side.
