Tony: When I listen to you two going back and forth, it always makes me smile.... then it makes me scratch my head at the things that aren't being discussed.

With all of this "intelligent cell" talk and "innovation from cell communities", has the scope of what you are saying really ever been considered?

This is the dhw approach, not mine. Look at all of my discussions refuting him.

Tony: You talk about developing a kidney, an eye, or a limb as if it were something trivial to design and implement. I would remind you that you are essentially talking about single celled organisms developing technology that humans don't even understand, much less have the capacity to duplicate.

I've tried to tell him how complex the liver and kidney are. Cells with some degree of intelligent information to operate by, cannot come up with a kidney plan.

Tony: Not only are organs and tissues mindbogglingly complex, but the vast majority of them are considered to be "functionally perfect", and have been so for millions of years.

Exactly.


Tony: Just how much intelligence are you willing to ascribe to a single-celled organism, or even a collection of them?

Only a simple amount. That is why I think there is an inventive mechanism (placed there by God)in the genome to create by plan such complexity, and I think it is yet to be discovered. The other alternative is God stepping in at the Cambrian and designing everything on the spot ( actually about 10 million years).
