This hurt to read.. and that was before the mention of Ken Hovind.
@Michael ty for explaining the joke, but I don't think that's the case. The imposible checkmate is related to the claim of wining the game without knowing or following the rules, claiming to win just because u said so. In this case, claiming to win a discussion without providing a single argument. It applies to the way you play the game, not the result... not every theist claims there's a God just because they said so, just the stupid ones, like the one from the picture.
Sense, nonsense, and much of what's between them has First Amendment protection.
To see evolution at work, do research on organisms that cause disease in living things. The flu virus, for instance; it evolves yearly into forms from which last year's shots will not protect me.
@ Ed at an IQ of 164, four standard deviations above average, I say the same thing when I see biologist make the case for evolution with out engineers, chemical and mechanical, who struggle to model and design the simplist systems and can't even hold a candle to nature, that mindlessly (according to them) and by freaky hits of gamma radiation, results in the irreducible complexity and design of the human body.
The realization that evolution is simply scientists best guess lacking any other evidence, rather than a rigorously proven theorem opens up unending vistas of truths and understanding. Moreover we are creatures bounded in the event space of causality, however, as of late, eminent physicist now conjecture on Hilbert space, the higher quantum reality from which events in event space are derived. Dr. Shechtman's winning of the Nobel Prize combined with Dr. Roger Penroses, contemplations in the "Emperor's New Mind", have open up higher vistas of reality heretofore not understood or thought to be impossible. But Quasi-crystals, with their 5 fold symmetry and their indeterminate aperiodic assemblages, an impossibility in nature, give strong evidence of the existence of a higher reality quantum reality, Hilbert space, that acts on macro systems far beyond the boundaries of the Heisenberg uncertainty principle.Welcome to the world of Meta-physicists, who have enter a brave new realm outside of established paradigms, the awe inspiring mystery, that reaches from the inner mind, to the Outer Limits.
