Sometimes, the stupid is overwhelming.


Just when you think she can't possibly get any more retarded:

Astronomer Guillermo Gonzalez, an expert in exoplanets (planets orbiting stars other than our sun), advances a related privileged planet hypothesis: Taking aim at the late Carl Sagan, he argues that Earth is a very unusual planet, situated in a very fortunate position for astronomy, as well as for life - and that that is design, not chance.

Yes, Denyse ... the fact that the vast majority of the universe outside of our little enclave is viciously and horrifically hostile to human life is clear evidence of supernatural design favourable to human life.

Seriously, I feel stupider for just having read that.

Yeah, my first thought on reading that too.

Dear Gawd that woman is stupid. Whenever I'm in a book store and see that book of her's in the science section, I'm ever helpful to store staff and move all the copies to the religion section where it belongs. Or the Sci-Fi and Fantasy section, whichever is closer.

Denyse just does not know who big the Universe is.

PS you need to watch the whole video, past the weird kid.

..yes, and, don't you know.. that when thunder booms it's because God is bowling..

Anyone voting Liberal or Democrat should thank their lucky stars that there are people this stupid who continue to create doubt in so many about the sanity of anyone on the right.. but then again, we on the right did have Stephane Dion.. so I guess it sort of evens the playing field..lol..

roblaw:
Conflating the well-intentioned (and generally good) ideas of the ill-expressed Stephane Dion with this sort of large-calibre stupid is to confuse a molehill with the CN tower.

Re. that shining beacon of burning stupid:
We exist in this universe because it is possible for us to exist in this universe.

To assert that this is proof of a designer is as much as to claim that the freezing temperature of water, being conveniently located at zero Celsius, is evidence that water was intelligently designed to freeze at that temperature.

liberal supporter said...

No Metro. The Designer set the freezing temperature of water at 32 Fahrenheit, because he wanted the salt water to freeze at 0 Fahrenheit.

But of course the ID folks would tell us that water, unlike most other substances, decreases in density when it solidifies, which because I am waving my arms, is evidence for a designer. Otherwise ice would not be on the surface of bodies of water and so would not be melted.

And have you ever noticed how everyone's legs are just the right length to exactly reach the ground? That's fucking awesome.

Southern Quebec said...

Isn't it sort of weird that Denyse agrees with Elizabeth Hasselbeck? Your purse just didn't "happen" to match your shoes, did they?

roblaw said...

LOL.. one of my favorite arguments was Ben Steyn, who basically was attacking a director with the American Academy of Science and argued, if the universe exists, and therefore must have been created, and you can't say how it was created, you have to accept that God could have created it..

..I was completely irritated that the guy didn't respond "and so, then, who created God?"

(Note: This is coming from a Christian.. but one who could care less if anyone else believes and would like to shoot religious fanatics who believe it's their "DUTY" to give everyone else the TRUTH..)

Ti-Guy said...

It's the conceit these fanatics have that gets me. I don't understand people of such firm faith believing they can understand God with such certainty. It strikes me as blasphemous.

"It strikes me as blasphemous."

i leave pretending to believe in blasphemy to the people who pretend to believe in god.
