Refereed Scientific Article on DNA Argues for Irreducible Complexity
Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences
December 2013, Volume 70, Issue 23, pp 4555-4567
Integration of syntactic and semantic properties of the DNA code reveals chromosomes as thermodynamic machines converting energy into information
Georgi Muskhelishvili, Andrew Travers
“Thus the holistic approach assumes self-referentiality (completeness of the contained information and full consistency of the the different codes) as an irreducible organizational complexity of the genetic regulation system of any cell”.
I agree Irreducible Complexity and intelligent design is just as valid as Intelligent grappling.

" A Georgia group calling itself Teachers for Equal Time has asked that stickers be placed in all new physics textbooks which note that mutual attraction and relativity are not the only theories available to explain gravity and should not be taken as fact."

Teachers for Equal Time hopes that the addition of the warning stickers will pave the way for the teaching of its alternative theory, Intelligent Grappling, the theory that certain intelligent and conscious agents “push” things together.

Dr Elf M. Sternberg, the originator of the theory of Intelligent Grappling, or “IG” as some call it, and president of Teachers for Equal Time, announced the group’s plans to seek legislation requiring the stickers at a Cobb County school board meeting.

“Mutual attraction has had a monopoly on the truth for too long,” said Dr. Sternberg,“it is time we let children see all of the theories.”

Gravity isn't real, you stay on Earth because the hand of god holds you down!

That's thoroughly stupid, Mac Muffins.
One deity, of the eternal and omnipotent type, is quantitatively no different than a million deities.
Think of it in terms of an infinite donut - one is no different than a dozen. Takes the same amount of flour, same amount of time to eat it.
Say stupid things like this to other people, not me.
Well, you're nearly right.

There's no *qualitative* difference between the deity you claim tgo worship and any of the millions of other worshipped gods out there.

Or do you have evidence otherwise? I'd like to see it.

Puck Frick's also wrong about the doughnuts because he can only promote one type of infinity.

Puck Frick's mind is too limited to understand heirarchies of infinities, despite Cantor's work a whole century ago.

That's the short answer.
If intelligent design was ever accepted as science, what value would it have?

What predictions would it make?

There is not much difference because they are all mostly the same anthropomorphic projections of the same universal forces.

Much as Tiamat, Ishtar, Demeter and Mother Earth are cognate for what some modern scientists refer to as Gaia (borrowed from Greek Mythology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_%28mytholog... .

I do not blame brilliantly composed allegorical texts that moronic humans take them literally.

It would support the Universal Consciousness and Gaia theories, not a deity. Organisms evolve because nature is actually consciously causing organisms to "self correct" and "adapt".

Consider getting a tan. The body "intelligently" creates melatonin to protect from bad UV while allowing in good UV to produce vitamin D. The cells that make us up can "think" and "design" and "create". Reality is far more amazing than "God did it.".
I honestly think these "Creationists" are blind to how beautiful and magnificent our planet is that they have to create a fantasy world described in a 4000 year old Hebrew myth.

It is like reading the menu over and over again while starving to death at an all you can eat buffet.

Unsupported?
A mind boggling complex event occurred and you not only call it 'unsupported', but have ruled out an outside intelligent force.
Anything infinitesimally as complex in science can only be accomplished in a lab under controlled circumstances.
Ah, the 'rational atheist' oxymoron mind, who can fathom the perversions of logic it uses...
Smirk.
So you invent something even more complex to explain it, claim it always existed, claim it is outside space and time yet can somehow effect even the minutiae within space and time, and decry others as irrational. Hookay, Sparky.

No. But that doesn't make me, nor anyone else, an atheist.
An atheist is one who believes no god exists. Is that hard for you to grasp? Because it's really easy for other people.
Another definition is the absence of a belief in a god or gods, which does qualify everyone as an atheist to certain god memes. Both sides of this "argument" are parsing words. There is no superior position here.
