As usual, Stephen Meyer tries to claim that only intelligence can generate information. My usual response to that is a combination of…
- But that’s the point of contention! You can’t use your premise as evidence that your premise is true!
- OK, smart guy, have you examined every single piece of information in the universe to back up your claim that information
always comes from an intelligent source?
But this is also a very good response. We have direct, observed, experimental evidence that information can arise from non-intelligent, natural processes.
This is the thing that bugs me about Meyer. He claims to be a philosopher, yet all of his books, every long-winded one of them, rests on a logical fallacy, his unsupported claim that all information is a product of intelligent design, and that therefore all information is a product of intelligent design.
