    Hmmm…

    I suppose hormones are specified because they resemble spaceships ?

    Cells are truely amazing machines. I didn’t realize how wonderful they were until I read Behe’s Darwin’s Black Box. It’s his book, the first ID book I read, that sold me on the theory of ID!

    Although I have been familiar with Mr. Oktar’s website for quite some time, this is the first time I’ve seen this particular video. It’s sure to be labeled a glorified argument from ignorance by ID opponents, but that does nothing to diminish the fact that this video makes an excellent point about the staggering complexity of biological systems. Hey, Darwin, en garde!!!

    I agree that the anti-ID crowd will get riled up over some of the content of this video. Especially about the use of the words “perfect” and “exact” that are spoken repeatedly. (I can already hear the cries of “What about the blind spot in the eye! The rod’s and cone’s are facing the wrong way!”) Regardless of where you stand, this video really brings to light the complexity that is involved and that HAS to be at least appreciated.

    “Everything was good, except the religious endorsement.”

    Well, that’s to be expected. It comes from a Muslim apologetics website. So what? Creationists of all varieties have used arguments which we can now identify as relating to Intelligent Design for more than a thousand years. It should come as no surprise that modern creationists now incorporate ID concepts into their beliefs. Besides, the argument that ID is necessarily tethered to supernatural creationism has been thoroughly refuted, regardless of what the critics say.

    Hi Folks,

    Do any of you read the advice column Savage Love ? This week there is a very funny example of a design inference (albeit, a little crude).

    The video can be downloaded and saved from Oktar’s website:

    I do not agree with all of mr. oktar’s religious or philosophical views but the graphics were great.

    I watched just the first few minutes. The graphics seem to be aimed at western children in the finest “Joe Camel” tradition. I wonder if they have any tobacco company execs in the loop there…

    The theme appeared okay but the presentation was way too “Deep Space Nine”. Why connect with science fiction?

    I was hoping more for a computer rendition of actual cell activity rather than that activity being represented by spaceships.
