It has always struck me as odd that fundies devote so much time and effort into trying to find a naturalistic explanation for their mythical flood, while looking for magical explanations for things that actually happened. -- Dr. Adequate

Howling about evidence is a conversation stopper, and it never stops to think if the claim could possibly be true -- foreveryoung

Re: Articles of Faith
Can you explain why you see something in DNA that James Watson doesn't?

Can you explain why you can't see what Watson and Crick saw?

That sounds like a no to my question.

I assume your cryptic question back to me is meant to imply that Watson and Crick's statement somehow supports your position. Since Watson has explicitly said that only the uneducated could believe in intelligent design, I don't think you can claim any support from that source.

Re: The plain truth about the function of DNA
Ed, are you familiar with the Dunning Kruger effect? You might want to look into it.
