And over at Kiddie Corner, Peter Robinson gets a woody over Tom Bethell's latest silliness regarding Intelligent Design:
If material causes only are admitted, and nothing exists in the universe but molecules in motion, then evolution must be true—a logical deduction from the premise of materialism. We are indubitably here, along with millions of other species, so how did we get here? Materialists have no choice but to accept that the molecules whirled themselves into extraordinarily complex, conscious beings.
After all, how can you possibly wrap your brain around the concept of materialism when it's so much easier to simply start with the premise of an infinitely ominpotent and omniscient divine being? Yeah, that does make things simpler, doesn't it?
