Evidence and critical thinking
Unfortunately, you dont understand how evidence or the scriptures are understood, not to mention critical thinking
Perhaps it is more that many of us do understand evidence and critical thinking, and as such have little to no trust for scriptures and other shamanistic writings.
The great trouble with religion - any religion - is that a religionist, having accepted certain propositions by faith, cannot thereafter judge those propositions by evidence.
Robert A. Heinlein, Friday

Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

False
Any topic dealing with the nature of things is a logical proposition and can or cannot be demonstrated in the reality of things.
design is one that can be demonstrated. Its was around long before man was here to contemplate it
False!
You can't come up with a series of rules to determine which objects are designed and which are not. You have had many chances on these threads, and you have failed every time!
If you can't define "designed" you are not doing science.
But we knew that all along. You are just peddlin' religious snake oil.
