I usually don’t comment on things like this, but I thought I would shake it up a bit. I found an article by a reverend that talks about intelligent design. The gist is that he sees the cleverness of nature that far outstrips what humans are capable of and makes the normal conclusion that random processes did not make this occur, but some intelligent designer (which he identifies as God) did.
To me, it’s amazing that other people can see the same thing and shut their eyes and ears and cry, “No, it’s all random and you can’t convince me otherwise.” These people don’t even hold open the possibility that a designer could be involved. Yet, what we see is strikingly what we should see if a designer is involved – like Behe’s quip that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it might just be a duck. Why do people ignore and reject that which is apparent and quite possibly true – that a designer could be involved in the formation of life on this planet? This is just the religion of Darwinism writ large, that not only does Darwinism explain all, but it supplants any type of god as a new catch-all explanation for the world. Darwinists attack ID proponents as if we are saying, “God did it,” yet their favored explanation is “Darwin did it.” And yet, due to their religious convictions, they never see the irony of their accusations.
