I say we need a picture!
(who is your counterpart, DLR?)
I don't see it.

I think he is deperately trying a bit too hard to attack those who don't buy into macro-evoloution. His points sound pretty weak to me.
The evo's are getting desperate, they know their pseudo science is nothing but junk, and that Coulter has put another nail in the coffin.
Actually, I hate to say it, but this piece is virtually unreadable. He's a lousy writer (maybe because English isn't his primary language). And there's really no argument at all. Just faked up astonishment that ANYONE could possibly question the General Theory of Evolution.
There's nothing here to argue with, because there's no argument to refute. Just mush.
'What say all of you?" - Say of what, or of whom? of Peter Olofsson? - sounds interesting, could be nice to meet some day. Of ID'ers? - good for laughing at, otherwise, per Dante, "They aren't worth a word. Just glance - and pass".
Mr. Olofsson is either himself satirizing Coulter's inane nonsense or he's fallen into the trap many rational people fall into: Thinking that ID is so patently ridiculous that its proponents don't actually believe such nonsense.
I do agree with the general theme presented here. Coulter is an astute businesswoman and probably doesn't believe half the stuff she spouts. She has just found a nice niche market for herself.
Ann also has said that the best way to deal with Islam is to turn them into Christians.
My whole theory about evolution is although most mammals, fish and whatnot have two eyes, legs, arms, and similar gentialia, there is no way to prove that any of these beings are connected unless you were there to witness it.
Sure you can do DNA tests and find similarities, but in the end it all comes down to having humans suddenly appearing out of seemingly nowhere with these incredible inventive genius minds.
It`s like having dolphins and all of a sudden there is this mutation of dolphins that can understand and invent math and physics, it just doesn`t happen, it`s impossible. It`s never happened in any species, there is no evidence it ever happened other than humans.
The primates that are around today, Gorillas, Chimps, Orangutans, seem to have all survived when Cro-magnon, Neaderthals have not yet Cro-Magnons and Neaderthals were supposedly smarter than all those primates yet they died off.
Maybe I`m writing a foolish post, but to make it brief, it seems quite impossible to me that humans could "evolve" from all that. It just doesn`t happen. If it did, we would have quite a number of other species with the mental abilities of humans. Bears, cats, dogs all have claws.. Yet only humans have this mental ability.
You would think at LEAST one other species would have the same, but no. None exist.
I think of Ann as an excellent comedic entertainer, who uses political topics.
Rather like Carlos Medicino who uses ethnic topics.
To neither would I go for science.
He thinks he's making a brilliant observation about Coulter which everybody else is not getting, except we are all rolling our eyes trying not to be embarrassed for him
He's definitely wearing his "I'm a geek button"
To me evolution does exist but for animals, but when it comes to humans there was something else involved. You cannot get the human mind from evoution, it`s impossible. It`s too far out there, too far from the norm. To me what the bible says is true, it came from God.
Initially ID appealed to me as a believer, but as I read it I was less than impressed with the rigor with which it was presented. Some of the presentations reminded me of stories that liberals tell to gain sympathy for a particular cause.
When another species other than human can come up with this, then I`ll believe humans did evolve.
Why is it so hard for "scientists" to accept that?
the trend of anti-intellectualism that clouds part of the conservative ideology
Oh really, then why is this piece by Prof. Olofsson the only response to Ms Coulter that is not screaming Racist! Bigot! Homophobe!
IOW, why do the self-appointed "intellectual" liberals make Ms Coulter the "issue" instead of responding to what she postulates?
My brain is in a twist!
Is this guy saying Coulter busts creation/ID
by busting evolution? (scratching head)
That is pretzel logic.
