the intelligent design

There are two distinct suppositions we can make about the nature of our existence:

A) Everything comes from nothing
B) Everything comes from something

Dedicated atheists will tell you that A is positively correct and they might try and take you back to some big bang which still needed some sort of fuel to happen. Even a spontaneous chemical reaction requires explaining as to where that gaseous cloud originated.

The reason I pick B is because it is the more logical of the two statements. After all, every process we observe in the universe has a beginning and an end; whether that be the creation of a baby, a rose or a diamond. It is what observe everyday in nature.

The additional problem with option A is that it hinges on the presumption that as limited flesh and bones creatures, additionally saddled with massive biases and blinders, we can comprehend the vast intelligence behind creation. This is not possible because our brains (sophisticated though they may be) cannot come to a resolution on such a hugely complex undertaking. Hence the only possible logical position left is agnosticism; i.e. to harbour doubt until things can be proven or disproven.

The fact is that the existence of God cannot be proven or disproven and to state otherwise is to be disingenuous. However, I prefer to observe that what I see all around me involves vast intelligence. Call it intelligent design if you will by some force or entity I cannot explain or conceive of.

As for the intelligence of some so called "religious" people, well that is another matter altogether.

Happy Easter.


  1. Your approach to intelligent design makes sense to me. I have slowly been evolving away from Darwin's theory towards the concept of intelligent design. You may want to take a look at Ann Coulter's book "Godless" for an excellent discussion on the subject. You may be surprised at how close you and Ann agree on this point.

    1. Pat its probably the only thing her and I have in common :)

    2. Darwin can still work because evaluation on a micro scale certainly fits the model of intelligent design. Darwin himself was a theist by the way and had no problems combining what he observed with his beliefs

    3. We come from an era and educational system where Darwin's theory was taught as an assumed fact. Deep thought or analysis, as I presume you have applied to what Darwin wrote, will show that there are multiple flaws in his theory and that upon analysis what is being taught in the schools as Darwin's theory of evolution needs to be reevaluated.

    4. In the Origin of the Species Darwin writes: "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone circling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved"...
