Syamsu,

1) Your link doesn't work.

2) Your level of written English is way below that which is needed to explain your ideas. I know that English is not your first language, but you are wasting your time at the moment, because your language barrier is rendering your posts into gibberish. A statement like this;

I think for it to be designed, it must either first exist in the future as a whole

is entirely devoid of meaning.

3) You have conspicuously failed to provide evidence for your future-decisions-anticipation drivel in the appropriate thread, so it is a bit rich for you to drag it in here.

Re: Rocks without DNA programming
Hi Tony,

Rocks are not "alive" because they have no Bio-Machinery and DNA programming. No moving parts to speak of.

OK. Did anyone say they were alive?

Now one could mould sand, etc. and cook it to create a hard rock that is "designed".

Agreed. Artificial rock is commonplace.

If you rough it up some what you may not be able to "see" the difference from one naturally created verses the masterfully designed rock that "looks" natural.

Sure, a rock could be made that would be realistic enough to fool me, but then, I'm not a geologist, just an amateur rock collector. Even so, I can recognise most of the man-made rock-like substances that one might find.

Let's say that I am fooled though; what does this prove, except that my knowledge of rocks and rock-like objects is flawed? Who does the rock have to fool before we declare it to be indistinguishable from a natural rock? Me? You? A six week old baby? A professor of Geology?

How does any of this get us any closer to finding out whether the rock is designed or not?
