Well then chimp chess players should on average fall only 1% short of human ELO ratings. ..... Ethan Clive Osgoode
The belief that ... POOF ... God created fully formed human beings 6,000 years ago is a belief that is confined to Protestant Fundamentalists that constitute only 20% of all American voters.
Most Christians, including all Catholics, are taught that, while God was the driving force behind Creation, how God decided to make Man was up to God. That is the position that Perry is taking.
It is statements like your chess statement, Ethan, that make the Creationist dogmatists sound silly.
Give an Intel manufacturing plant the blueprint for a microprocessor with 0.5% of the data missing from the blueprint, Ethan, and tell us how well your computer runs with the resulting CPU.
When the blueprints for Deep Blue's microprocessors are missing 0.5% of their data, that does not reduce Deep Blue's ELO by one half of one percent .... That makes Deep Blue totally nonfunctional as a chess tool.
Indeed, it would be as useless at chess as a refridgerator or washing machine. And who can believe that a washing machine can change into a mechanical grandmaster by a sequence of fortunate accidents? Why, it's just about as plausible as a monkey changing into grandmaster by trial and error. Who in their right mind would believe that a chimp is but 0.5% away beating Garry Kasparov? Only those who are noted for believing in the nonsensical, i.e., Darwinians.
Synopsis of your post: MOST people believe that the Word of God lies. Good position
