I pop in to the Huffington Post site quite often. Today there is an extremely juicy guest editorial by Richard Dawkins.

I'm sure many of our thought-enabled members will enjoy his comments on Intellijint Dezine. :bounce:

What I've been saying all along.  ID is just another bad analogy.  In order for the analogy to hold, either the designer requires a designer itself, or if the designer does not then we can simply postulate life without design and cut out the middleman.

Design itself is an evolutionary trait.  The only reason we have any concept of what it is to design something is because we are a toolmaking species, and it was this ability that gave our ancestors a survival advantage.  Nuff said.

I just finished reading this article by R. Dawkins.  It was great.  I really enjoyed the comments after the article.There is so much info to digest. I often find myself getting bogged down in reading this stuff because there is just too much to think about and understand.  Then I don't remember any of it.  My meager little limited brain just can't process it all. 
I am trying to apply a stategy as I read articles posted here in the forum or elsewhere. I look for one or two things I can take away from an article and think about or apply to life etc.

What I am taking away from "Why There Almost Centainly Is No God" is the Chamberlain/Churchill analogy.  I have always pooh poohed the extreme religious views but been kind and gentle toward the mainstreamers because they are my friends. There can be no appeasement of supernaturalism no matter who it is.

Now how will I apply this to my life?
