    not to make false connections though. The earth is not an organism period. That idea is romantic nonsense that has no basis in science, at least not in current science.

    The diarist is in danger of finding God by a  route that is dangerously close to intelligent design.

      Climate change, anyone?
      Rabbits in Australia?
      If that got elevated to a religion, it'd be a damn sight hea;thier than anything we have going now....
      hey...wait...that's my religion already!
      I forgot. I'm kinda lapsed.
      That said, the analogy is not only valid, but it pleases me.
      So there.

      Cobalt6 And I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.

       As a well recognized scientist, I find your lack of understanding a bit frightening since you put it forth so dogmatically.  Certainly if you were able to appreciate modern science you would have never made that statement.  It is rather troll like.

      The diarist is in danger of finding God by a  route that is dangerously close to intelligent design.

      You need to go to the INTO THE COOL BLOG and learn that we are using this line of reasoning to show the total futility of the ID scam.  What you don't seem to realize is that the sterile science you promote is what gives them ammunition.  We are very good at stopping them in their tracks, especially when they misuse complexity science.  You need to become informed.

      An idea is not responsible for who is carrying it. It stands or falls on its own merits.
