Fortunately some people here must come from Lake Wobegon.
For the average person, precision indicates that an intelligent person guided the outcome.

That's really sad isn't it. It certainly says that the average person is pretty pitiful. Thank God it seems many folk here must have been born in Lake Wobegon. Sorry you missed out.

so much misinformation.
It's absolutely amazing how people like the originator of this thread can say so many things that are absolutely bullshit and yet expect anyone over about the age of eight to take their posts seriously.

Take for example his assertion of "Some of those 60 elements are gases and are therefore invisible to the human eye."

Gasses are not always invisible to the human eye. Chlorine gas is a pale yellow green for example. Fluorine is pale yellow.

When a poster makes really imbecilic, half-witted, moronic, ludicrous statements about stuff that is really easy to check and often covered in a basic high school chemistry course how in the world can they expect anyone to take anything they say seriously?

Of course it is possible that the poster hasn't gotten to High School yet and doesn't have access to services like Google.

On the Periodic Table
In On the difference between Science and ID or Biblical Creationism I pointed out how the Periodic Table is a great example of the differences between Science and nonsense like Intelligent Design and Creationism.

As I said at the time:

quote:
The importance of Mendeleev's Periodic Table (it was not the first and actually others were working on the same concepts he presented at the time, similar to what happened with Darwin) but it was unique because it not only explained what we did see but also made concrete predictions about what would be discovered including revisions to the then current body of scientific knowledge.

Mendeleev's contribution is that it made specific predictions and specific tests that would either confirm or falsify his explanation.

ID makes no such predictions, no predictions of any value actually. It is just wishful thinking at best and mental masturbation more often.
