Anyway, why are you asking me to do it if you're so sure I'm such a risible moron?
Could it be that there's something you want to learn from me, after all?
Perhaps the meaning of "risible?"

The topic, such as it is, was fully and completely addressed in the first dozen or so posts in the thread. There's really nothing of substance left to say, so all that remains, frankly, is to ridicule you.

I'll give you something else to ignore or waffle around
Remember our old friends the NASA antennae?
Those are examples of two "sophisticated systems" that grew without any intelligent input. Go ahead, ignore or misconstrue these away to your heart's content.

Re: I'll give you something else to ignore or waffle around
Was there a computer involved? Where did the materials come from to construct? Who constructed the systems? Was intelligence involved to determine what the designs were useful for? Would the systems exist if intelligent man did not determine they were useful then construct them? Did the systems construct themselves? Shall I go on?
No need, you've proven my point.

Re: I'll give you something else to ignore or waffle around
actually your point was that their was no intelligent imput and you were proven wrong.
Two possibilities; either you are deliberately missing the point I was actually making or you don't have the wit to understand it. Either way, there's little point in me, or anyone else for that matter, discussing this with you any further. Not that that's a new development or anything, but it's always good to reaffirm certain truths now and again.

The source is a computer program designed by an intelligent mind.
Would the antenna design exist if you took intelligent man out of the equation? Yes or no?
Is information alone enough to create a material system? yes or no?
Are you still obtusely missing the point, yes or no?
