About as randomly chancey as Beethoven's Sixth Symphony filmed live, and played on Blu-Ray

Another h/t to Solomon over at SNAFU

from Oracles Of Norway Tumblr

Your body is an incredibly bizarre machine.
“What you see is a myosin protein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain’s parietal cortex which creates happiness. Happiness. You’re looking at happiness.”
For those of you who derive personal comfort explaining away this one-in-a-trillion unlikelyhood of a self-assembling mousetrap with the complexity of a jet engine, as something that evolved as the result of random chance X millions of years of Darwinian Evolution, ROWYBS.

If you can't help proseletyzing your black helicopter version of reality in comments, show your work on how this particular single function, among tens of thousands inside you every day, came to be so. Focus on the evidence of the millions of catalogued defective attempts before this exemplar happened into being.

Otherwise, behold Proof #4,687,317 on why anybody postulating anything other than the work of a creative genius in designing Everything is full of metric buttloads of crap.

For those with IQs above room temperature and a sense of wonder, simply enjoy the fact that we have the technology to create this explanation and appreciate it now. Unlike what was available to certain small-minded cranky old fools on a ship sailing the Galapagos in the mid 1800s. If you bitter clingers had described this biological marvel to someone like that back then, you'd have been locked up in an insane asylum.

Special treat: a better, cleverer, funnier, and more acerbic exposition of the insanity that masquerades as science than any I could concoct in a week's fervent effort: Darwin Unhinged: The bugs in evolution.

Bonus: for anyone who felt betrayed by bait-and-switch in the title, with a spare 45 minutes and the processing power to multitask, here is Beethoven's Sixth Symphony:

When you feel the world in general, or life itself, is too petty, mean, gloomy, and doomed you ought to listen to it, to remind you of just the opposite.

Oh Lord my God,
When I, in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made...
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed...

Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee:
How great Thou art! How great thou art!

It is amazing and complex. But whatever higher power you believe "created" us must be even more amazing and more complex. Who created that???

Wow. I played the violin as a whippersnapper, even some of this. Midnight at sea in the Navy with the stars overhead confirmed to me a higher power exists. Now I do Vivaldi when appropriate for contemplating my navel.

Evolution is predicated on the absurdity that a tornado could blow through a trailer park, and create a fully-functioning DSLR Camera.

The human eye is more complex than a digital camera.

Thus, Evolutionists may return to their cult, and recommence their self-congratulatory circle jerk and fart-wafting, because there's no swaying zealots.
