Yackiru wrote in a single passage, unbroken except to intersperse with my comments:
"Yanniru wrote:
"I think God or nature or whatever, perhaps even evolution, has set up the system of life to work rather automatically even when the results are very dramatic and seemingly involve the supernatural."

Clearly that denies the importance of cogitation.
"System of life" is being bulldozed, paved, combusted and siphoned off to eventual waste dump a growing human population juggernaut which is "guided" by "thinkers" in
management who agree with Yanniru's statement that no thought is necessary in the "system of life."

It's not done by intervention of some superior intelligence.

"It" is instead done by intervention of demagogues quoting the same party line as Yanniru. These demagogues trivialize the conversation with their rhetoric and make trouble for folks who dare to truly cogitate
before they communicate on science issues.

In most cases it's all there to begin with and we just need to know how to activate the system to get dramatic results.

"Activate the system," he said.
The system is "automatic," he said.
"It's not done by intervention of some superior intelligence,"he said.

))) SHUDDER (((
Maybe he meant something different than he wrote.
