Unintelligent Design Why God Isn't as Smart as She Thinks She Is free read í 6 Providing a humorous argument against creationism this witty book debunks popular theories of intelligent design while showing how science can explain nearly everything including sinus pain hedonism hernias and morality This critiu Part rant part memoir part science and philosophyRobyn Williams is a man of science a broadcast and print journalist and an academic who has joined the chorus of voices that are fed up with the attempt by creationist and Intelligent Designers to hijack our societies Williams presently writes from Australia but has lived in Europe while growing up in the UK He focuses on American culture and American creationists as well as on those from Down Under and in Europe He is witty glib chatty and uick with a satirical rapier worthy of VoltaireHe sees the unintelligent design movement fired by proud ignorance and a lust to power I couldn t agree but I d ratchet it up to arrogant ignorance Williams means proud as in the sort that cometh before a fall I have little doubt that the creationists and their turkeys in tuxedos the IDers will go the way of the dodos eventually as our populations become educated and no longer easily swayed by the charlatans of religious mumbo jumboThe book is jeans and t shirt causal There are no footnotes or endnotes or a bibliography or an index He uotes whole passages from people like Richard Dawkins and Jared Diamond but doesn t say exactly where he got the words He mixes memoir with secular sermon no soda water history with incident and passion with the jocular He ridicules the notion of an anthropomorphic God asking if God in whose image we are said to be made ever gets a bad back The very idea of intelligent intelligent design is made absurd He writes Halitosis farting vaginal discharge reflux snoring rheumatism warts smelly armpits varicose veins menopause brewer s droopthese are not the marks of a designer at the top of his game p71Williams spends some ink debunking ID claims to life from complexities so great that they had to have a designer the main ID delusion Here he brings Richard Dawkins into the fray in a most delightful wayDawkins in his book The Blind Watchmaker is busy rebuking the Bishop of Birmingham Hugh Montefiore author of The Probability of God Dawkins uotes Montefiore As for camouflage this is not always easily explicable on neo Darwinian premises If polar bears are dominant in the Arctic then there would seem to have been no need for them to evolve a white coloured form of camouflageDawkins gives this mock translation of Montefiore s paragraph I personally off the top of my head sitting in my study never having visited the Arctic never having seen a polar bear in the wild and having been educated in classical literature and theology have not so far managed to think of a reason why polar bears might benefit from being whiteWilliams guides Predators need to surprise their prey He adds Bishops and lay folk too may like to take the troubleto see what science has come up with p 57 58 If they do so they might not fall into what Dawkins has called the Argument from Personal Incredulity or what Williams has generalized as what I ll dub as the Argument from IgnoranceMuch of the book is like this and some of it is very funny indeed and works well as a scathing revelation of the stupidities of the Intelligent Designers But there is also some very personal writing in the book that surprised me Williams writes about being a child with a heavy handed communist father and being in a secondary school in London in the 50s In short this is a book that engages as much as informs or guidesFinally I want to address this idea that Williams brings up on page 76 Conflict is creative andisolated societies decline As happened in Tasmania before the Europeans the technology becomes primitive and the people languish without invasion rape and pillage to renew the innovative stock This is connected with the specious argument that the seemingly evil God who is allowing all the carnage is just doing it for our own good What I wonder is does humankind have the ability to survive the current domestication of some of our populations think couch potatoes in America When the war system ends as I hope and trust it will eventually what is to become of the EloiI don t know the answer to that uestion but perhaps we will acuire the wisdom to redesign ourselves in a way that allows for greater human happiness over greater periods of timeTo close here is a nice Williams rant The human brainresembles the creation of the devil rather than of a God That it is capable of good is beside the point ID is like a computer program with a built in virus ID is a baby born with syphilis ID is
