I Love A Good Magic Trick


Sometimes you just gotta say something.

In A Deeper Look at If Evolution Is True, llamapacker puts the intellectually mere mortals among us on notice of the upcoming complexity of creation.

This is part of a very complicated discussion about creation.

I confess (well…) to deep anticipatory angst in advance at what I expected would be a severe intellectual thrashing.

I saw a link to something. I didn’t bother. I was still enthralled at the upcoming intellectually complex creation argument.

The evolutionary debate is complex on its own, but it is often further complicated by the use of a logical fallacy known as equivocation.

I am once again disappointed at yet another vacuous “argument” for creation. Thankfully, it was mercifully brief.

Science cannot be debated, countered, displaced, disproved, mitigated, obfuscated, or negated by magic.

The “argument”, wether purportedly complex or genuinely so, is nothing but a diversion. For honest believers, it permits compliance and provides cover from reality. For the self-serving, it provides a power base and income steam (it’s great for comedians, too). For others it’s a compulsion to which they must respond.

Well, I always thought magic was fun.
