„Humor, since it depends on so many emotional, social, and intellectual facets of human beings, is particularly immune to computer simulation.“

„Appreciating humor—even recognizing it—requires human skills of the highest order; no computer comes close to having them.“

„Simulated evolution on a computer works but is no where near the gradual incremental process that is associated with Darwinian evolution. It's closer to dog breeding in terms of its computational complexity.“

—  Robert J. Marks II American electrical engineering researcher and intelligent design advocate 1950

In the universe, [besides] space, matter and energy, there is information. [Information hasn't yet] been [well] defined nor studied.
Many times proponents of evolutionary computing … refuse to recognize the contribution of [the programmer's infusion of information] into the process.
Association with ID (intelligent design) in any way is detrimental to one's career. Everybody who works in ID should first have tenure before they come out of the closet.
My comments are as an expert in computational intelligence. I'm not a biologist. For me to talk about the details of biology is as stupid as a British biologist claiming expertise in religion. (A reference to Richard Dawkins.)
Engineers actually design things. This is why [many] engineers are interested in the area of intelligent design
