Search for Terrestrial Intelligence

Should aliens turn their intelligent design filters to earth, i think that William Dembski would be surprised to find he does not register. I mentioned yesterday that Bill was mouthing off again about how if people accepted that SETI was science, they had to accept that ID was science. The argument always makes me think of Johnnie Cochran saying 'if the glove doesn't fit, you must acquit.' Look at the silly monkey.

So in case you thought this was a relevant argument, here's a very very thorough refutation of exactly why it's a load of bollocks.

Also, more Intelligent Designers lying for god. So much for the whole 'thou shalt not bear false witness' thing.

I have a question, with regards to the possible impact crater found in antarctica. If an asteroid 50 km in length slammed into the earth could it alter the orbit around the sun? and by alter I mean not just a little wobble but actually push the earth further away (or closer I suppose depending on whether it hit at night).

That depends what you mean by 'false'. After all, the widely accepted meaning of 'false' is 'not genuine' and therefore this does not make sense, so ID must be true. QED.
