Designer Genes

A friend sent me this recent item from the Fox News website:

Life As We Know It Nearly Created in Lab

Livescience has a similar article

Let us dissect the rhetoric often missed by the unwashed public and otherwise glossed over and conveniently ignored by Darwinian propagandists.

Life "nearly created." Ponder this verb a moment. How can life, something defined already as "living," be "nearly created?" Is it not already by definition "created." I mean, it is living, right?

Ponder the verb once more - "created." Doesn't something "created" imply there was a "creator?" Hence, some individual who is a "creationist?" I thought that was the name Darwinianists are deathly afraid of being called.

In fact, design and - dare I say - creationist language is repeatedly used a number of other times in this story.

...scientists have created something in the lab ...

The researchers, at the Scripps Research Institute, created molecules....

...researchers synthesized RNA enzymes.... (The word synthesized meaning some one "put something together").

...the scientists then mixed different RNA enzymes...

Then the kicker,

Only when a system is developed in the lab that has the capability of evolving novel functions on its own can it be properly called life, Joyce said. In short, the molecules in Joyce's lab can't evolve any totally new tricks, he said.

Perhaps this is the "powerful and undeniable" evidence Mr. "profile not found" Bob insisted proves Darwinian evolution without a doubt as noted under my review post about that book on Genesis.

Hmmmm? A group of scientists designing enzymes in a lab that really can't do anything on their own is powerful and undeniable evidence?

I'm convinced.

Wow look at that evidence of "chance" being demonstrated! What's that? They planned making those combinations? They had a specific plan for seeing the results produced.

Well that's the definition of "chance" isn't?

Tongue firmly in cheek.

This is interesting. Doesn't it follow that if life must be "created" in a lab, then there's a pretty dang good chance that life was created?
