I don’t really like to talk about political stuff on my blog, but this horseshit has landed in my backyard, and I can’t take it anymore.
The theory, as I understand it, is this:
“The universe is so complicated, that it must have been designed by an intelligent being.”
In order for this to be an assertion of science, I think we need some stuff:
- An objective way to measure the complexity of things
- X = “An objective measure of the complexity of the Universe “
- Y = “A measure of complexity such that things less complicated than Y can be accounted for by natural processes. “
If we had all those things, we could do an experiment. If X is greater than Y, the intelligent design theory is correct.
Otherwise, your theory is crap. Sit down, shut up, and leave the science to the scientists.
