I'm designed intelligently

Page history last edited by PBworks 13 years, 4 months ago

I'm designed intelligently? As far as I can se, I was designed by an idiot. My parts are neither interchangeable nor replaceable. I could use a new ankle right now, and almost everything I do injures my back. Some of my internal organs are useless and can even kill me. My risk-calculation engine is useless. I am afraid to eat beef, but have no problem catapulting myself down tree-lined roads on my motorcycle. My judgment is so bad I can be convinced to send my life savings to a complete stranger with just one pone call. The final stake in the heart of ID is that there are people we might otherwise consider intelligent who, in the face of all this, maintain we are functioning as intended.


Erroneous Assumptions:

  1. That if their is an intelligent designer that he/she/it must want us to live forever, have interchangeable parts, never get hurt no matter we treat ourselves.
  2. That God is responsible for your decisions. Most people who believe in God or an intelligent designer of life believe that mankind has been given the gift of agency.
