Excelent work! So... how do I figure our if my rock (I think I will name him Stumpie) is 'the result of informed and reasoned decisions'? It refuses to tell me, no matter how many times I ask!
Okay, when the IDers talk about an intelligent designer, they have a specific IDer in mind; even though they are loath to say so. This IDer is some kind of god thingy that goes around creating universes and such like â€˜just because it canâ€™. Furthermore, some IDers, when theyâ€™ve not got their ID hat on, claim to have a personal relationship with the god thingy â€“ even to the point where it communicates with them in some cases.
On a couple of other threads I have suggested that IDers just ask the god thingy how it formulated its design, etc, but Iâ€™m still waiting for them to get back to me. Iâ€™m thinking there may be some intellectual property issues here â€“ you know the sort of thing, the god thingy has failed to gain copyright protection or a full patent for the design. You know what these creative types can be like â€“ full of innovative flair but short on practical considerations like protecting the design! Of course it could be something a lot more mundane â€“ the god thingyâ€™s dog may have eaten the design spec and the god thingy has forgotten how it did itâ€¦weâ€™ve all been there.
So Iâ€™m thinking you need to keep working away at Stumpie, it may be our best hope of unravelling the mystery of design.
Life is a cleverly designed optical/intellectual illusion of what real life would look like it such a thing did really exist - though is does not - but an artificial one was designed to look as if it were that real thing - that can not really exist any way.
Letâ€™s substitute a couple of words here and see what we getâ€¦
ID is a cleverly designed optical/intellectual illusion of what a god would look like if such a thing did really exist - though it does not - but an artificial one was designed to look as if it were that real thing - that can not really exist any way.
On the other hand, a god who has to fake life because it canâ€™t create the real thing is surely not worthy of the title of intelligent designer in the first placeâ€¦
