Intelligent Reasoning

Promoting, advancing and defending Intelligent Design via data, logic and Intelligent Reasoning and exposing the alleged theory of evolution as the nonsense it is. I also educate evotards about ID and the alleged theory of evolution one tard at a time and sometimes in groups

Using Technology to Clean the Air

In preventive maintenance and global warming I mentioned using/ creating technology to combat the effects of the industrial revolution.

Sure I am all for planting more trees, bushes, grasses, plants…

Heck if we could use the Interstate Water Distribution System to irrigate and feed the new plants.

But that isn’t the point- back to technology and CO2.

June 2010 Scientific American has an article titled “Washing Carbon Out of the Air”-

Key Concepts:

> Machines with filters made from sorbent materials can bind carbon dioxide, extracting it from the air.

> With mass production, machines might capture CO2 at $30 a ton, less than the $100 or more charged for commercial CO2 supply.

> With improved sorbents, 10 million machines across the planet could reduce CO2 concentration by five parts per million a year, more than the rate of global increase right now.

The article says there are several teams working on prototype machines.

Coming to cities and industrial areas around the world- more jobs!!!!

Intelligent Design in the lab


So ID is proving its worth in science labs- go figure...

Shadowed by an Obtuse Moronic Coward


Very flattering though- the lengths losers and poseurs will go to:

unitelligent reasoning- the title fits- OM is a classic case of being so dense he is a walking black-hole...

OM must stand for Obtuse Moron...

Radioactive Decay and the Age of The Earth

It is said that the earth is about 4.5 billion years old.

This is based on radioactive decay- well what some scientists have assumed is based on rad decay.

However when does rad decay start? Phycists have told me that radioactive decay can start once the unstable element is formed.

So when is that?

Well physics 101 says that all elements are born in the stars. All elements up to Fe (iron) form via fusion when burning fuel.

The rest are born via fusion when a (the) star goes supernova.

So if rad decay can start when the elements are formed then we would have to know what suprnovae seeded out part of the galaxy in order to know anything about age.

IOW the radioactive elements that formed Earth would be old to begin with.

There is only one thing that I could be missing and that is if the radioactive clocks got reset somehow when the Earth was forming.

But I cannot find any reference that states that is so.

So the bottom line here is rad decay starts when the unstable elements are created then we cannot use rad decay to tell the age of the earth because the elements were created, not when the Earth was formed, but when the supernonae that created them occurred.

Equivocation and Evolution Revisited

Seeing that evotards are so dishonest and obtuse they keep perroting the same ole refuted nonsense it is time to revisit this post:

Main Entry: equiv·o·cate
Pronunciation: i-'kwi-v&-"kAt
Function: intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): -cat·ed; -cat·ing
1 : to use equivocal language especially with intent to deceive
2 : to avoid committing oneself in what one says

Evolution has several meanings*:
1. Change over time; history of nature; any sequence of events in nature

2. Changes in the frequencies of alleles in the gene pool of a population

3. Limited common descent: the idea that particular groups of organisms have descended from a common ancestor.

4. The mechanisms responsible for the change required to produce limited descent with modification, chiefly natural selection acting on random variations or mutations.

5. Universal common descent: the idea that all organisms have descended from a single common ancestor.

6. “Blind watchmaker” thesis: the idea that all organisms have descended from common ancestors solely through an unguided, unintelligent, purposeless, material processes such as natural selection acting on random variations or mutations; that the mechanisms of natural selection, random variation and mutation, and perhaps other similarly naturalistic mechanisms, are completely sufficient to account for the appearance of design in living organisms.

With the above in mind it is easy to see that the theory of evolution is really a theory of equivocation. That is any and all evidences for evolution 1-5 are always used as evidence for evolution #6.

For example- the varying beak of the finch, anti-biotic resistance in bacteria, and genetic similarities (including alleged shared mistakes but regardless of the physiological & anatomical differences), are all used as evidence for evolution #6.

It should also be noted that evolution #6, ie culled genetic accidents, does not produce any predictions beyond perhaps change and/ or stasis, nor is it objectively testable.

* page 136-37 of Darwinism, Design and Public Education


In October 2007 I posted a piece I called Equivocation and Evolution, to highlight the blatant misrepresentation that evolutionists use in order to deceive anyone reading their comments.

This equivocation has now filtered into mechanisms- so called evolutionary mechanisms.

1. As I have pointed out many times, evolution is not being debated.

2. Evolutionary mechanisms could very well be telic- ie designed, as in designed to evolve, with genetic accidents being a small part of the scenario. See Dr Spetner's Not By Chance

And finally, as has been pointed out at least several thousand times, not one of the evolutionary mechanisms, nor any combination, has been demonstrated to do anything except provide slight, oscillating variations in an existing population.

Note: Page 67 of “The Edge of Evolution” Dr Behe has Table 4.1- Varieties of DNA Mutations- substitution, deletion, insertion, inversion, gene duplication, genome duplication. IOW those evolutionary mechanisms are not ignored.

Let the evotard flailing begin...
