  •  Purpose is not a prerequisite to good design. (0+ / 0-)

    The symbiotic randomness of Evolution clearly demonstrates the beauty of good design.
    Intelligent Design is political force whose purpose is to prove the existence of a Christian God. Creationism is not exclusive to the Bible. Many cultures have their own version of how things came to being, with histories that proceed the 6000 years of Judaism. The cultures in the ancient Middle East had no way of knowing what was going on in the rest world; that there were thriving cultures elsewhere, that they weren't the center of the human race. It's understandable that their texts would demonstrate this ignorance. For Modernity to adopt this same ignorance is regrettable.
    Christianity was forced by science to give up its belief that the earth was the center of the universe. Christianity will eventually have to give up the belief that the Garden of Eden was the center of human existence.
    Galileo didn't bring an end to Christianity, and neither will Darwin. Accepting science is not antithetical to accepting Jesus.

    And they scream... The worst things in life come free to us... Cause we're just under the upper hand... And go mad for a couple grams.
