I think those Lego stories are awesome. I saw the Christmas Story last year...the baby Jesus was adorable. I love when the Lego people are naked.

Did you see the Lego's version of evolution? It's great. They take this little kid and give him about 1 million Lego blocks...then he throws them up in the air and all by chance they create human organs, birds that fly, machines that think, and plants that grow...true to life "science"

That actually made me laugh, asher. Good one. Seriously though, no scientists claims that humans, birds, or plants happened by random chance. That's why there's the whole theory of natural selection, which took hundreds of millions of years. It's not like the theory of evolution claims that there was a pool of chemicals and poof! there was a human!

Oy. I'm flattered. :) I'll do it.

Sadie Lou said...

Yay! I thought for sure you'd back away from that particular challenge. I'm excited to learn more about you.

asher said...

Ah, yes...but evolution does posutlate that all of this "natural selection" took place all on it's own, without anyone or anything directing it. The example is more akin to a tornado blowing through a junk yard and magically producing a 747 jet. Hey...so it took a couple of years...so what. Look how well it turned out.

Design implies a designer. Today your kidney will do more chemical interactions in your body alone than all the chemists in the world will do this year. The ph of your blood will control itself. You will breath without even being aware of it. Your heart will thump away without your knowledge. But this is all "natural selection"!There must have been zillions of creatures with defective kidneys, out of sync hearts and ph blood levels out of wack that didn't make it.They all died out. Those with the proper anatomies lived in.

In one classroom in a yeshiva one of the rabbayim said, "Only a human being could come up with a theory so absurd as evolution"

The difference is the first 999,999 1/1,000,000s of a jet are completely worthless, while every step along the way to modern animals was itself a viable, reproducing organism.

...so it took a couple of years...
Actually, we're talking 2,800,000,000-3,500,000,000 (three billion) years. It's impossible for us to get our heads around such large numbers, because we evolved to live for less than a hundred. This plays tricks on our statistical instincts.

BTW - The leggo scenes are quite brilliant. I hurt myself laughing.

As to evolutionary 'deep' time - it's more like 4 Billion years... but who's counting.. (chuckle)

It's a VERY long time... and much can happen given enough time & the right kind of stimulation...

Evolution by Natural Selection is SO much more likely than any kind of ID.

As to the idea of 'design'... Check out just how baddly rabbits are put together - they have to eat their own poop because their stomachs are the 'wrong' way around...

asher said...

Yes, it's hard to believe rabbits evolved to be such a poor example of evolution. You'd think this type of anatomy would have died out at least a billion or so years ago and yet they exist! This bad anatomy was passed down through the centuries to rabbit after rabbit and they made it. Natural selection might have come up with a better idea but in the 21st century we still have rabbits...how can that be?

It just makes sense that a cow-like creature would return to the sea and become a whale. I mean, why should it not?

Look, either you got intelligent design or you got NOTHING. To pretend that evolution is "science" is to raise mud wrestling to a sport. Since it can't be proved, tested or reproduced you got a theory..up there with strings.

Very cool.

CyberKitten said...

Wow.... If you think there's more proof for ID than Evolution... you've been reading the wrong books....

No.. hold on... If you think there's ANY proof for ID.. you've definitely been reading the wrong books....

OY... can't we all just revel in the hilarity of legos. This is the funniest thing I've seen in a long time. I wish I could go out and buy this - I have the perfect recipient in mind...
