Did I just witness a "Oh Great Hairy One" just get edited out of a message? I thought that would refer to Mammuthus.

Or are you making fun of my photo, you woman with the nutty hormones.

Doh! I got caught!

Yes, I was thinking of our friendly neighborhood mammoth, then realized that it was another 4-legged, slow-moving large mammal who had written to me.

Sorry.

Thread: A thought on Intelligence behind Design
Post #: 171

quote:
For example, there was the artist who engineered a rabbit that glowed. Let's say he never announced his project and simply set the animal free. And it mated and that trait became inherited and no one noticed these glowing rabbits until there was a small population already established.

See the original message for the greater context.

In general, I continue to be a big fan of holmes. It seems I depend on him to make sense of the statements of the more "wacked out"* philosophers around here.

* - meaning that their logic may or may not be valid, but it's certainly beyond my comprehension.

A fellow Dennett fan wields Darwinism's universal acid against the 21st century version of Paley's argument from design.

I hadn't thought of atheism exactly as Rrhain stated till i read it. I then thought for a moment over my last week as an example.

He's right. Other than here, the very concept of god hasn't crossed my mind all week. It's a complete non-issue.
