  •  Intelligence lessens with complexity. (4+ / 0-)

    Intelligence becomes more precarious as it becomes more complex.

    Human intelligence is based on the intelligence of single cells which combine to create he intelligence of organs and systems which combine to create the intelligence of the human being.  Unfortunately, the more the complexity o fintelligence the greater the risk to intelligence from delusion.

    The fundamental absolute intelligence of "pure" energy only goes downhill from there to humans who are very delusional about ourselves.  Humans are the pennicle of self-consciousness because we have given up much of our inate intelligence, not because of it.  That is a paradox that Christian intelligent design creationists don't even perceive, much less know how to deal with.

    •  the worst part is (0+ / 0-)

      we've suffered through nearly eight years of a president who raised Christian idealogy over scientific fact/inquiry. Now Mike Huckabee thinks we will willingly elect a man who thinks fairy tales are scientific fact?

      I'm at the junction of short, nerdy, and oddly attractive.
