I quoted "smartest..." because actually this guy doesn't seem to be all that smart. Of course he seems to be a *smart* person, but not any smarter many of us.

He argues against non-ID evolution by basically saying this:
1) we can't explain randomness
2) "I don't like uncertainty!" (I think I hear him sobbing during this part)
3) if we ever find an explanation of randomness it will no longer be randomness, per se, UNLESS
4) we continue to explain randomness with uncertainty, in which case you should refer back to #2 (reaches for another Kleenex)

This is essentially a smart guy with an ignorant attitude. "Hey, I'm tired of waiting for science to explain reality, so let's dismiss science and assume GOD." Isn't this Jerry Falwell's explanation too?

Harvey, you seem to be a whole lot smarter than this guy, whose score of 195 supposedly means he's the swiftest man in the USA.
