Since journalist Steve Sailer is such an icon among the HBD/Game crowd, I decided to read his well-known article, "A Miracle Happens Here: Darwin's Enemies on the Right.
Overall, there was nothing insightful or entertaining in this piece, but one paragraph did catch my eye - simply because of it was so brazenly contradictory.
"For a good scientist it's simply more fun to try to explain some facet of nature than to assert like [Michael] Behe that nobody could ever explain it. Anti-religiousness is the appropriate professional prejudice of scientists.
The Sidney Harris cartoon summed it up. A lab-coated researcher is filling the left and right sides of a black board with equations, but the only thing connecting the two clouds of symbols are the words, "Then a miracle occurs." Another scientist suggests, "Maybe you could give us a little more detail on that middle section."
Relying on miracles in science is like relying on the lottery in retirement planning.
OK, let's make sure we understand this: Sailer (and his cartoon buddy) are mocking Intelligent Design for inserting a "miracle" into the early stages of creation...But according to Darwin's version of events, how does Non-Life turn into Life?...Waiting...Waiting...Waiting...Oh yeah...A miracle happens!
The Darwinists have no idea how Life originated on this planet...They are just as guilty of the "miracle defense" as any I.D. advocate...The only difference is that I.D. advocates feel comfortable with the idea that God is the source of the miracle; the Darwinians, on the other hand, a priori, rule out the possibility of God's involvement.
So, regardless of whether you're a Darwinist or a theist, you are believing in a miracle. The question then is: Which God caused the miracle? The God of Love or the God of Evolution. Which do you choose?
