There She Goes Again

Speaking of My Favorite Posts, Cornelia Dean has shown that she has not lost her religion and that she still loves to recite what I call "Cornelia's Creed," which I originally discussed here. In a recent article, she keeps beating her drum like the Eveready Bunny:
There is no credible scientific challenge to the idea that evolution explains the diversity of life on earth, but advocates for intelligent design posit that biological life is so complex that it must have been designed by an intelligent source.
You will note that she brilliantly combines her creed with a convenient mischaracterization of the claims of the leading proponents of intelligent design.

I love Cornelia. Sometimes it is hard to show media bias because of its subtlety. She makes it easy.

You can find related follow up posts by putting "Cornelia" in the "search this blog" field above.

Hmmm. What is the definition of a Cornelia Dean? Let's see:
definition a: lack of nuance, inability to pay attention to details.

b: one who does not understand history, one who makes things up out of whole cloth.

c: one who speaks many words and says nothing at the same time.

Yep. That explains most Darwinist dogmatists in general.

The key to her statement is the word credible. The question here is that in scientific community who is in charge of giving credit to scientific papers which oppose darwinism. Mr. Dawkins?

Well the correct phrase should be something like this:

There is no credible scientific proof to the hypothesis that evolution explains the diversity of life on earth.
