short sighted
I am inclined to believe that everything in this world exists as a result of chance. This computer I'm using for example...I have never seen any one built it. Hell I can't even discern a clear purpose for this computer. What is this computer used for?

Is it to email, code, calculate, watch pictures, videos etc?
It simply does too much. There is no clear purpose for a computers use. In fact, come to think of it. I own a lot of stuff I've have never seen built by anyone. Does this all mean that all my things(car, tv, sofa, stove etc) were conjured up by nothing?

People say all the time that my devices were created by other people, but why should I take their word for it, I have never seen them being built by anyone.

Some even say that life was created by some designer, should I take their word for it? I don't see anyone creating life, why should I believe them.

If some mechanical device was to fall from space and land here on earth. How the hell would anyone know it was created? If it displayed some characteristics resembling the mechanical structures of some of our earthly machines there would still be no discerning factor to say it was built by anything intelligent. Simply because, no one would have seen it as it was being built.

Re: short sighted
You can tell something is created when it contains features that do not occur naturally. Like the bulb of percussion, striking platform, bulbar scar, and percussion ripples of an arrowhead.

There's even a guide for that.

There is something eerily un-natural about life itself. Lots of question to ask, and no definite answers. We're just here in this barren wasteland called space.

Besides as far as anyone here is concerned. As long you don't see an object being built and as long as it doesn't display a clear function/purpose, then the object in question exists merely because of chance circumstances. The bulb of percussion and whatnot simply cannot stand up to this sort of mindset. Nothing can.

I'd hate to see how this world would be if there wasn't technology to deliver information on a grand scale. We'd all be idiots babbling that stoves came from volcanoes and submarines, the birth-child of the sea.

It's always interesting to see certain some-ones confide and say there is no definitive way to tell if an object was designed. I'd hate to hire any architect or engineer with that mindset.


Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose. (lol!) The Blind Watchmaker (1996) p.1

Re: Don't rely on people's word, look it up yourself
Don't take anyone's word for it. Research it yourself and find out.
There are computer facilities that you can visit, and you can see one being built with your own two eyes, if you wish.
After my own experience... it seems that, yes, computers are created by people.

Lemme see here. Nope, too lazy to look those things up. For now I'm pretty certain that my computer and such were conjured up in a thunderstorm. After all most of my devices use electricity.

Don't take anyone's word for it. Research it yourself and find out.
There doesn't seem to be any facilities we can visit to see life being built.
We do have histories and on-going research into how life works, though... you can learn about that, if you wish.
After my own experience... it seems that, no, life was not created by a designer.

I did some research before coming here. It would seems that the earth is flat and objects tend to levitate and throw themselves across rooms from time to time. Maybe, no, perhaps...no, no, I am 100% certain that from time to time objects would levitate, throw themselves across the rooms and then form computers.

Some lucky bastard found a haven of computers formed in the desert and would sell them from time to time. Bill Gates, you lucky son of a b*#!&.

I also have a tornado theory if you're interested.

Re: short sighted
I cannot disagree with any of the information you have pointed out. Clearly your link showcase methods of recognizing man made objects within archaeology, and there is nothing I can really disagree with you on.

You certainly make a good point, and I have learned something about archaeology. Thank you.
