Re: Theory of Intelligent Design - Get it here!
Since there is already a competing theory that is supported by actual evidence and that adequately explains what is seen, the first question anyone trying to market ID needs to answer is "Why should a secondary theory even be considered unless it can explain what is seen better than the TOE?"

So far no one has ever presented a convincing answer to that question.


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: Theory of Intelligent Design - Get it here!
Nonsense. We know pretty much how intelligence works and I see nothing in ID that has a chance of explaining the origin of life although we certainly are getting closer and closer.

Sorry but ID seems pretty stupid since so far no one has presented either the intelligent critter or evidence of any design but there is overwhelming evidence that stuff just happens.

So again, what possible reason could there be to even waste time with ID?

Re: Theory of Intelligent Design - Get it here!
I can tell you what we see and that intelligence is simply the result of neuron firing in the brains of living things.

It seems to be quite common in nature and pretty wide spread but all indications are that it is just mechanical and chemical.

And how much of what theory? So far I see no such thing as a Theory of ID since so far no one has presented any evidence that there is any design, designer or intelligent designer or any evidence that such a thing might be needed, worthwhile or interesting.
