Intelligent Design

David from A Physicist’s Perspective has an interesting post and conversation going on about intelligent design.  I know I am a bit late but the comments were so interesting that I had to point this out to you…

Add some comments to the conversation.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

  1. Hi, Wayne! I just visited your blog after reading your comments on mine. Looks great. Have a terrific day!

  2. One more comment…I just read your bio,and that you came to Christ through the ministry of KTIS radio. That really blessed me, since I’ve been in Christian radio for over 25 years.

    What about the new discoveries of
    what archeologist found? They found hobbit size people and bones of goliath size people that were dated to have existed at the same time as man! Where is that explained in intellegent design also they were not found in “the cradle of life” that is africa.Just because you can’t explain something doesn’t mean it should be chaulked up as god created it. At least in evolution there’s actual physical proof of the theory. With the bible it’s all conjecture and hope within the scared of death people that read it that it’s right. If that’s what keeps you going then alright but intellegent design does not belong in science class or in the public school system. It’s basically a fairy tale. Don’t just take things of your choice out of the bible. There’s all kinds of fantastic tales in that book. That funny enough they aren’t mentioned to much, why because you know it’s b.s.. The invisible man in the sky must of created that because were to ignorant to look for the truth.When everyone starts to think like you it’s over.

    Robert,
    Thank you for taking the time to comment. I think there may be a few things you do not know.
    First of all, for hundreds of years men have been trying to disprove what the Bible says. For example most doubters thought that there was no such actual person as King David. He his know as the Greatest King in the Jewish history of Kings. Anyway most of the modern world thought the He was just a Jewish myth. That is until modern Archeology found all kinds of artifacts about the house of David exactly where the Bible said he would have lived. If you do a serious study of the factual history of the Bible, you find that in each case where the historicity has been checked the Bible is indeed verified to be true. I urge you to do the study, there are fantastic resources out there and they are perfect for a skeptic like yourself. I can recommend a bunch of them to you if you are interested.
    Secondly, finding big or small people does not conflict with the Bible. Remember, David and Goliath is a Biblical story.
    Thirdly, with the issue at hand, Evolution, you make the claim “At least in evolution there’s actual physical proof of the theory.” When you say this, you need to be very careful with language. In the world of science there is both micro evolution (small changes within species) and macro evolution (one species changing to another). Everyone in his or her right mind would agree that there are examples of Micro evolution. You gave one example of that, big and small people. But in all of the archeology record that we have unearthed, there is NO example of macro evolution. No one has found the missing link; so Darwinian evolution is just a theory.
    In the world of science they have a process called the scientific method. That is how they test out theories. They test them by observations. In other words the way to test macro evolution is to test it. Macro evolution has never been observed.
    If you read scientific journals about evolution it turns out that among the evolutionist elite, Darwinian evolution is a dead theory. This is the theory of small changes in a species happening over a very long time creating new species at some point. So, this theory is dead. The new theory is Punctuated Equilibrium which means things stay the same for a very long time and then all of a sudden they change. This is a nice theory but again it is only a theory. But frankly this theory would line up very nicely with some of the stories of the Bible. Imagine the worldwide changes that would have happened in the great flood.
    So much of the intelligent design movement stems from a desire to attempt to explain the complexity that we find in most living beings. How do you get to this complexity scientifically and mathematically? Evolution can not get you there statistically.
    Have a great day.
    Wayne
