George Dubya(MSh) - The least intelligently designed president of all time ever

Well, I thought that my blog title might flush out some American Shiteology Majors & general Intelligent Design Apologists/Fantasists for starters. Nope! I suppose THAT would be too much to hope for...if you are an Amerikan reading this you are in all likelyhood a DEMOCRAT (East or West coast?). Of course being a European Generic Democrat Liberal type myself, I have ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM WItH AMERICAN REPUBLICANS, as long as they stay out in the garden. I must admit that IRISH REPUBLICANS make me feel quite ill too though. Anyways, I will defend anybodies ABSOLUTE RIGHT to say & believe whatever they want, as long as they do not try & impose their views on those who don't agree with them by intimidation or force. Was'nt it Voltaire who said (I'm paraphrasing him here in English) " I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend your RIGHT to say it with my life" (but preferably with someone else's life, epecially if you're a member of Al-Qaeda or a NeoCon). Well I hope that's clear now, y'all. Incidentally, there's a Town called Youghal (pronounced "y'all") here in Ire-r-land, in East Cork County. So if you're ever in Youghal George, be careful not to confuse the locals - "Y'all from Youghal?". If you do visit, & EVERYBODY IS WELCOME to come & check Ireland out, (unless you're a member of Al-Qaeda or a NeoCon) Make sure you try to LEAVE DUBLIN at some stage during your vacation. Try West Cork County. Especially Baltimore (in West Cork, the original one, not the Yankee one). Tis a little piece of Paradise boy...and you know what? My own County, Wicklow is really nice too (& a lot nearer to Dublin Airport now our Dublin Orbital Motorway/Freeway/Highway/Autobahn/Autostrada/Autoroute, the M50, is FINALLY finished. It took more than TWENTY YEARS to complete about 40km). Dunno Why they called it the M50. We've no M49 right through to 12. We DO have an M11 however, which is about 5 mins drive from my keyboard here, sorry, I digress. If you've bothered to read this far, I may have got away with it. Now please, scroll on...

Ps. What I wanna know is this - how can CREATIONISTS delude themselves that
so called Intelligent Design somehow makes The Universe more wondrous. All THE EVIDENCE accumulated by humanity to date demonstrates that there is no need for an "Intelligent Designer". Why oh why can't each & every person on this lump of rock just open thier eyes/ears/hearts & minds & look & see & learn from ALL THE EVIDENCE SCIENCE HAS GIFTED US that the Universe we know & love actually, on the balance of all evidences & probabilities, happenstanced spontaneously. Maybe that's just too scary an insight to comprehend for a lot of good Christian (& Muslim & Jewish) folks. OK, obviuosly it is, but you know what I mean. Heck, why think for yourself dude? It's all there in the Good Book's. Case closed. Now let's go kill each other over the details. And I know I should'nt start a sentence with "And" but I'm mad as hell, I mean why must they HIJACK those two words, quite good ones. Intelligent. Design. I can't even utter them in this blog anymore, so in future I'll call it "ID". Ok, so I got a bug up my ass called INTELLIGENT DESIGN, shite, typed it again. Sure, I'd love the cosy emotional security blanket & slippers of a Creator God up there in the clouds, creating away, sorting us mere mortals out into convenient piles, one marked "Damnation" (the bigger one), the other marked "Salvation". I'm sorry guys BUT I JUST CAN'T BUY THAT! Those CREATIONIST ZEALOTS have hi-jacked two perfectly innocent & useful words for their own nefarious needs. Intelligent Design = Creationism that's well understood I know. Without a sinlge ATOM of physical evidence (one of my favorite words, definitely) they use those two words to describe their "Theory". Well, is it not an oximoranically & hysterically inappropriate use of the english language? Now I know (it's been commented on here already from another blogger) that I am basically railing & ranting against "ID" in this blog. That I am not putting forward any cohesive & cogent arguments to challenge it logically. Some shite about if I found a watch in a field one day , how would I know if somebody made it, or created it. Jesus. (I'm a lapsed Catholic, so please indulge me the luxury of that expression of exasperation!). Anyway, it would probably have "Made in Japan" (or more bleedin' likely now, "Made In China" engraved on the back of it). All I can say is that minds a helluva lot more focussed than mine, (eg. Professor Richard Dawkins) has debunked "ID" repeatedly & forensically in his published works on numerous occasions. His arguments are extremely well laid out, logical, eloquent & persuasive. His EVIDENCE to counter the non evidence of "ID" is overwhelming. If you are unsure then go to any library, heck it's the Information Age...Google him, it'll all be there for you. Oh bugger, if you are an antideluvian, claminded ID proponent (I just invented that expression, clam-minded = claminded = closed mind!), well you won't be READING this liberal diatribe anyway. Maybe though, you are a teenager who's parents are brainwashing you with all that Christian Fundamentalist Shiteology, & you secretly blogsurf when they are busy away at Walmart buying more ammo for Armegeddon. Do youself a favour if that is YOU! GOOGLE Richard Dawkins NOW!

Phew. Oh. I feel much better now, time for a game of Battlefield 2 now as a reward Des, yes. Cyber Insurgents shoot back but it does'nt hurt (or leave a mess). And the Online Game Maps are so intelligently designed...

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.


Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.


Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Hey, you have a neat blog here! I will definitely return for another look ! I have a latest cholesterol medications site. It near enough treats most topics that match latest cholesterol medications subjects. If you have the opportunity, kindly come and check it out.

I read your diatribe with interest. You are certainly no fan of intelligent design. However you did not refute the theory, you simply scoffed at it and its proponents. I would like to hear any actual refutations you have of ID.
What ID believers often argue is this:
You are out walking in a field. You find a wristwatch lying in the grass. It is working. Do you believe: (a) Someone designed and built the watch, then dropped it here, or (b) the watch sprang into existence on its own, by sheer chance. Of course both are possible, but most people believe (a). So then, the blade of grass beside the watch is even more intricate than the watch, with millions of working parts. Why then believe it came into being by chance when you cannot believe the same about the simpler watch?
Please, an un-emotional refutation of ID. I know you can do it.

Other than that I like your blog a lot. You have a sort of free-flow style, do you talk like that too?

I must say though, I am surprised to find pornographic images alongside those of your children. Would you consider removing them, to make your site more family-friendly?

Your drawings are excellent. Have you considered taking up drawing again?

Steiner62 said...

Ok. You made some fair points about my less than forensic effotrs to "diss" ID. There are far more learned, persuasive & eloquent debunkers of it around than me(eg Prof. Richard Dawkins). I suppose there's a lot of blinkered/right wing/christian fundamentalist types out there trying to refute the Theory Of Evolution. To my knowledge not a single one has explained away that Theory, upon which I place MY faith, which is supported by the Scientific Method,evidence based reasoning & literally mountains full of ancient fossils.I hope that partly adresses the important issues you raised. As for the (not so) pornographic pictures (meant to be a parody more than anything)' I've removed them as your point was well made & relevant.

Yes, ubfortunately for all my friends & family (& long suffereing wife in particular), I do tend to talk like I type, only MUCH quicker!

Yes, with positive feedback like yours, I may well get my pencil & paper out again someday...

Thanks again for taking the time to leave a comment. I'm curious as to why you decided to be anonymous. Mainly because I'm not sure if you';ll ever see this reply. Maybe the convention is to go come bavk here & check if you arte anon. If so then that's perfectly fine with me...
