If you believe in “Intelligent Design”…

If you believe in “Intelligent Design”… then you have to explain this appalling video. You have to explain why an “Intelligent Designer” would come up with a design as disgusting as this one:

30 hornets destroy 30,000 bees to feed their young. But the hornets don’t feed their young the 30,000 bees they killed – they feed their young the larva, and in the process they eliminate the entire hive. It is just disgusting. It is the embodiment of profligate waste and destruction.

There are, of course, thousands of examples like this in nature, all just as disgusting. There are grotesque parasites, diseases, etc. If they were created by an “Intelligent Designer”, you must conclude that he is a repulsive demon based on his portfolio. Never mind the fact that there is no evidence for Intelligent Design. To believe in “Intelligent Design”, you must turn off rational thinking and completely ignore both of these problems.

    Nooooooooooo, Creation was perfect!!! It was only the Fall who corrupted it all!

    Even though of course the ‘Fall’ could only have corrupted it ACCORDING to the framework that BibleGod had supposedly defined earlier on … ;)

    A&E might have triggered it but it was BibleGod who determined what the consequences had to be!

    So if there is a Creator then the ultimate responsibility lies with this Creator. Even though believers won’t accept that of course. They prefer to live in their illogical and incoherent bubble.

    According to Milton (who was admittedly living in the 17th century) Adam must have had microscopic and telescopic vision before he ate the magic evil fruit, because otherwise there’d be no point in God creating zillions of things that can’t be seen with ‘normal’ eyesight.

    Goes to show, you can solve anything with logic…

    -You do realize that the Biblical creation stories are not what are being promoted by the Church as explanations of how we came to be and even the Pope has accepted the Theory of Evolution as legitimate scientific fact. The only purpose these stories serve (yes both of them) is to try to explain to the people living in the year 1000 CE when they were written a comprehensible way to view creation. Through the process of Hermenuetics we view them today in modern Catholic society as merely metaphors. These were written for a certain audience thousands of years ago, and is not even an original Jewish story but copied from the Enuma Elish of Babylon.
