No predictions - no way to determine if true or false - not science.

ID is pretty much the explanation about how everything came to be where it is after quadrillions of variables that could have been.

I thought ID had to do with things in the Universe being so complex that they must have been designed by a Super Intelligent Being?

These are concepts that don't even belong the same sentence. Utter oxymoron.

ID is not science, and its proponents aren't doing anything to try to change that. Rather than buckling down and doing some real research, all they do is whine about being shut out of the science club.

ID is nothing but a PR campaign.

ID is nothing but scientifically vacuous gobblegook. ID is not a theory. It makes no predictions. ID has no substance, and explains nothing. It's Poof! Magic!

So creating life is not science? In that case cloning is not science. If you had the ability to create life would that not be science? It all depends on how life was made. If life just appeared out of nowhere it is not science, it is chance/luck. If someone put 2 and 2 together and created 4 that is science. Could be wrong here but I believe the Bible states we were made from the dust of the earth.

I'm thinking infinite number of monkeys who have not quite got it right yet.

What a long strange trip that was to go from an odd idea of science to God. The only part you got a little bit right was about the Bible and earth. Of course it depends on what part of Genesis you are reading.

But what does all the other religious text say?

gotta love ol' billy bob, lol. Cloning of a human cannot also clone a soul, which is how a person can think for themselves and acknowledge their own existance. Cloning is creating life, but not life with a soul.

reproduction is mixing 2 DNA's into 1 and making an actual kid, it's not called cloning because there are two parts to it instead of one.

I want to see an experiment that succeeds in making blank DNA, and I mean a type of DNA that can be written to create a lung, a heart, or even anoter whole human being. If there is such a way to do that, then you can call yourselves whatever you wish.

Bob, go back to world of warcraft, lol

Must be God's mercy that makes you too stupid to be embarrassed about the foolish things you say.

Then we would be silicon-based, rather than carbon-based.

If it is the goop that holds all your beliefs together then why not just call it Designer Glue?

So sure of yourself, you are.

So certain you have of what IS and what IS NOT.

There've ALREADY been human clones-- has been as long as there've been humans, actually.

Ever hear of identical twins?

They are CLONES-- the originally fertilinzed zygote SPLITS and each 1/2 forms a complete human being.

WHICH twin has the SOUL, then?

Can YOU tell?

For-- according to YOU-- only ONE has the SOUL!!!

And the OTHER-- NO SOUL!

Hmmm.

Your simplistic version does NOT fit the available FACTS.

Again.

This makes YOUR version--- both WRONG and SILLY.

See above.

WHICH TWIN is without soul?

(that's easy--- the one what is light-skinned....<rolls eyes>)

Really? So SURE of yourself, here?

So. According to YOU-- Jesus was a clone?

For he ONLY had a MOTHER-- no father!

Or, was your Jesus just the offspring of an unwed mother?

You know.... a B******.

They've ALREADY successfully cloned a human bladder, human skin.

It's only a matter of time....

So what are those cloned animals running around? Robots? Depends on your definition I suppose.

The idea of twins sharing a soul has big potential. Just can't decide whether horror flick or TV sitcom.

Clones are not creating life because clones are merely children with identicle dna. There are no "cloning vats" like in sci-fi
