I love reading the Christian reviews on this stumble. "Hey look there is no god because I cut up a giraffe." actually, there isn't a god because there never was one to begin with. the laryngeal nerve is just a small bit of proof adding to the fact that god never existed. quit being so ignorant and just accept the fact you waste your life worshiping a non-existent artifact. yes, artifact.
I just found it bizarre that there's a bunch of people excited to watch a giraffe being dissected in an effort to disprove the faith of others. Something twisted about that. Because one nerve is longer than it needs to be all of the beauty and design in nature is moot? Let Dawkins engineer a better giraffe and then maybe I'll be impressed.
science should be an endless quest for knowledge and discovery, not an endless battle against religion. nevertheless, an interesting video. i would have liked to see them dissect the full nerve though.
Hey, look, there is no God, you can tell because I cut up a giraffe.
"No engineer would ever make a mistake like that???" So that is the reasoning by which Dawkin's concludes life could not be a product of intelligent design? Hilarious! Using that (his own) mode of logic anyone with a brain can conclude, in view of the enormous evidence of design displayed in life, organs, living systems and complex biological processes, that they could only have been designed by an "engineer", and an engineer infinitely more knowledgeable, talented and capable than any engineer Dawkins could conjure up in his imagination let alone an imperfect human one. So according to Dawkins one.. or even a few apparent engineering flaws observed in nature by Dawkins outweighs the multitude of engineering feats (miracles would be a more apt description) required for life to exist? A real scientist could only conclude that he is not knowledgeable or has not investigated scientifically enough all the possibilities for these "engineering flaws" to exist by design, rather than jump to the absurd conclusion that if there was an intelligent designer he is pretty stupid. Dawkins is a certifiable quack as is demonstrated in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyT_AOtwHa4 and his only significant attribute is that he can sound intelligent while pontificating babble to any audience he can find that wants to agree with him.
