Re: Is there scientific evidence for an intelligent designer aka God?
I have no idea who is responsible for this, but it is no coincidence: Seen from the surface of the Earth, the Moon has the same visual diameter as the Sun. Not only that, the Moon needs 29.5 days per rotation (around Earth or itself) and the average rotation of the solar surface is 29.5 days with 24 days at the equator and 35 days at the poles. The only life-form on Earth which might notice that, is those whose female fertility cycle has the very same period of almost 29.5 days.

If there is intelligent design aka, GOD...

We need to understand that GOD is evidence of science, not the other way around. He invented it, that is the plain simple
 Quoting: Scarbedazzles


"We need to understand"... you forgot something. prove this god exists in the first place.

otherwise, no, we don't need to understand.

That's 51 either non-scientists or scientists whose fields have nothing to do with evolution (and I'm being generous because I got tired of typing). So easily at least a fourth of your list is bogus.
 Quoting: ToSeek


Great, so that's over 100 then in relevant fields, and that is by no means a complete listing.

Here's at least 400 more PhD's from major universities, most of which are in the field of biology and natural sciences.


"We are skeptical of claims for the ability of random mutation and natural selection to account for the complexity of life. Careful examination of the evidence for Darwinian theory should be encouraged."

[link to www.discovery.org]

Go find the dentist and tell us how its all bunk :P


Now let's try and guess the number of scientists that are skeptical and do not wish to be troubled by going on the record and getting tarred and feathered by the naturalist community... hrmmmm..



And I really don't care how many scientists question or don't question it. Science is not democratic. I just think it's hilarious that Naturalists believe macro-evolution is not questioned by "qualified experts"

Re: Is there scientific evidence for an intelligent designer aka God?
heres my question. With all that man has endured thru nature, the most puzzling is this how did man survive the ravages of plague. There is no explanation. The knowledge of epideology would suggests that mankind should have faded into extinction a long time ago, and yet we are still here. The nature of disease is to invade the body and destroy it, about the time the human body's immune system adapts and sends t cells to attack the invading bacterium, the disease has mutated many times, rendering our defenses weak and useless thus the many deaths recorded in history. How did we survive the perfect killing machine if not by the hand of a divine being?
 Quoting: MUIRNE


This is one of those questions.

The choices are:
Intelligent Design (some higher being kicked things off)
Stupid Design (simple evolution)

Intelligent design has problems explaining the dinosaurs.

Stupid design is like the big bang theory. Something magically defied entropy and started moving and reproducing. Yeh, right.

The problem with stupid design is it is kind of stupid and has no explanation for how life originated but is ok on explaining the sequence of species.

There are strong logical inferences to God. One of them being that Naturalism fails miserably to account for even a working theory of the origins of anything.

In general, it is perfectly logical to assume a creation had an intelligent creator.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8597527


No it's not.

It's never to logically assume something based on no evidence, especially when there is at least some evidence that things can occur without a all powerful creator.

It's never logical to assume that lack of evidence for god is in fact evidence for god.
 Quoting: seethelight


The evidence is a creation that defies natural origin.

It's right there for you to see.

Admittedly it is still a leap of faith to conclude "God" but it is still more rational than "all of this came together naturally SOMEHOW!"

Naturalism requires an incredible amount of faith. Science has shown us that.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8597527


That's not evidence.

Just because you don't know the answer, that's not evidence that some random speculation is true.

We have seen, for instance, evolution in species, we have seen geologic process, evidence for a big bang, etc.etc. etc.


We have seen NO evidence for god. At all.

Questions the Big Bang Does Not Answer

A major challenge to the big bang has come from observers using the corrected optics of the Hubble Space Telescope to measure distances to other galaxies. The new data is giving the theorists fits!

Astronomer Wendy Freedman and others recently used the Hubble Space Telescope to measure the distance to a galaxy in the constellation of Virgo, and her measurement suggests that the universe is expanding faster, and therefore is younger, than previously thought. In fact, it "implies a cosmic age as little as eight billion years," reported Scientific American magazine just last June. While eight billion years sounds like a very long time, it is only about half the currently estimated age of the universe. This creates a special problem, since, as the report goes on to note, "other data indicate that certain stars are at least 14 billion years old." If Freedman's numbers hold up, those elderly stars would turn out to be older than the big bang itself!

Still another problem for the big bang has come from steadily mounting evidence of "bubbles" in the universe that are 100 million light-years in size, with galaxies on the outside and voids inside. Margaret Geller, John Huchra, and others at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have found what they call a great wall of galaxies some 500 million light-years in length across the northern sky. Another group of astronomers, who became known as the Seven Samurai, have found evidence of a different cosmic conglomeration, which they call the Great Attractor, located near the southern constellations of Hydra and Centaurus. Astronomers Marc Postman and Tod Lauer believe something even bigger must lie beyond the constellation Orion, causing hundreds of galaxies, including ours, to stream in that direction like rafts on a sort of "river in space."

All this structure is baffling. Cosmologists say the blast from the big bang was extremely smooth and uniform, according to the background radiation it allegedly left behind. How could such a smooth start have led to such massive and complex structures? "The latest crop of walls and attractors intensifies the mystery of how so much structure could have formed within the 15-billion-year age of the universe," admits Scientific American—a problem that only gets worse as Freedman and others roll back the estimated age of the cosmos still more.

What exactly do you call a naturally inexplicable universe, life, and human consciousness?

The evidence is literally right under your nose, but you're viewing the world through the NATURALIST FAITH, and you don't even realize it.

You're not skeptical, you're faithful.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8597527


I am skeptical towards the supernatural explanation due to a lack of evidence.

Science studies the laws of nature. You are proposing that there is something outside of the bounds of these laws which we can't measure but created these natural laws. Laws, which by the way, you reject. i.e. evolution.

Everything that you view as evidence of God is based on natural laws.
 Quoting: Psych


Exactly, you have a rigid faith in natural laws (or naturalism) as the ultimate explanation for everything.

The logical problem of where these natural laws originated, is not fathomable to you. You've closed your mind off to such questions because asking them violates your faith.

Micro-Evolution is an observable fact. It is a pure assumption that "millions of years" removes the barriers that we observe daily. Macro-Evolution is not even a working theory.

Nobody rejects Natural Laws of which its effects can be measured or observed. And Macro-Evolution is certainly not one of these.

Natural origin is based on total Faith, and remains irrational and inexplicable according to the natural laws of Science itself.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8597527


Sticking to facts does not equal having faith.

I can easily imagine a God creating natural laws. It does not require any effort at all as it is the most simplistic explanation ever. Unfortunately, I have thoughts and questions.

The problem is that you can not differentiate speculation and fact. You are speculating that there is a supernatural being which created these natural laws but there is nothing to substantiate that idea.

Evolution does not need to be split in micro or macro. It is the same process. Macro explains the branching and micro explains the changes within a branch. Micro leads to macro.

Evolution is a fact, deal with it.

A number of years ago, creationists rejected the big bang. Now they claim God sparked the big bang.

This will happen with evolution as well.

Ok, how about this.

Evolution takes thousands of years to develop a trait, right? Ok, so mankind, this go around, has only had transmitted sound for a little over 112 years (Marconi sending radio waves in 1898). We have had transmitted video for 103 years (Georges Rignoux and A. Fournier 1909. So, there has been very little time for any evolutionary traits to develop. However, from the very beginning of these broadcasts, continuing up until today, there has been a trait in women that was DESIGNED in. That is the ability of your wife, daughter, significant other to talk, walk in front of, or otherwise disrupt anything you are hearing or watching at the EXACT moment that the plot is revealed, your favorite part comes on, or the winning pass or shot is taken. This is not an evolutionary trait, as it does nothing to further the species. Indeed, the near homicidal rage that overtakes most males after having this done to them for the THOUSANDTH time would indicate that this ability in women is counter to continuing the species.

This is something that had to be designed in, by a being with a very good sense of humor.

Re: Is there scientific evidence for an intelligent designer aka God?
Three decades ago Dr. Frank Salisbury of Utah State University, U.S.A., calculated the odds of the spontaneous formation of a basic DNA molecule essential for the appearance of life. The calculations revealed the probability to be so tiny that it is considered mathematically impossible.


He assumed that this molecule had the opportunity to develop by natural chemical reactions on 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 (1020) “hospitable” planets over a period of four billion years. What are the chances that a single DNA molecule formed? By his estimate, one in 10 to the 415th power!

Well, I do pay more attention to my wife than most men do to theirs, but I do like to blank my mind on occasion with mindless crap. However, I still think that we have been designed. If not, then why are we the only species that has "evolved" to our current state? No other apes, reptiles, or others have ever moved past their wild state.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Re: Is there scientific evidence for an intelligent designer aka God?


Here's a lecture by Dr. Gordon Wilson explaining in detail why Scientists have no problem questioning Macro-Evolution.

Watch it and weep for your naturalism faith.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8597527


I've watched it. Boy, that was tedious. Why are creationists so big on long slow videos? Can't they write stuff down?

Some issues:

1. Misquotes Dawkins - in addition to ignorant, stupid, or insane, he mentions wicked. Wilson doesn't include that option.
2. Claims that evolutionists accuse creationists of denying species multiplying. I've never heard that.
3. Admits that Darwin dissenters have a variety of views. You'd think that if they were right and Darwin were wrong that the Darwinists would be all over the map, and they'd all agree. But - as he notes repeatedly - it's completely the other way around.
4. Claims that intelligent design proponents are different from creationists when there's overwhelming evidence that's exactly what they are. By their own admission ID is just a way of getting creationism into schools and colleges.

He does make an interesting point about trying to explain nature using nature. I'm going to have to think about that.

On the other hand, I listened to bits from the follow-on lecture ( [link to www.youtube.com] ) and pretty much every claim he makes there about creation science has been solidly refuted.

I think intelligent design is more plausible than not. What says you?
 Quoting: _KlLLUMINATI


I think there is scientific evidence. When you decode DNA, it is a language. Language needs intelligence; it cannot be formed through evolution.

I'm agnostic BTW.

Questions the Big Bang Does Not Answer

A major challenge to the big bang has come from observers using the corrected optics of the Hubble Space Telescope to measure distances to other galaxies. The new data is giving the theorists fits!

Astronomer Wendy Freedman and others recently used the Hubble Space Telescope to measure the distance to a galaxy in the constellation of Virgo, and her measurement suggests that the universe is expanding faster, and therefore is younger, than previously thought. In fact, it "implies a cosmic age as little as eight billion years," reported Scientific American magazine just last June. While eight billion years sounds like a very long time, it is only about half the currently estimated age of the universe. This creates a special problem, since, as the report goes on to note, "other data indicate that certain stars are at least 14 billion years old." If Freedman's numbers hold up, those elderly stars would turn out to be older than the big bang itself!

Still another problem for the big bang has come from steadily mounting evidence of "bubbles" in the universe that are 100 million light-years in size, with galaxies on the outside and voids inside. Margaret Geller, John Huchra, and others at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics have found what they call a great wall of galaxies some 500 million light-years in length across the northern sky. Another group of astronomers, who became known as the Seven Samurai, have found evidence of a different cosmic conglomeration, which they call the Great Attractor, located near the southern constellations of Hydra and Centaurus. Astronomers Marc Postman and Tod Lauer believe something even bigger must lie beyond the constellation Orion, causing hundreds of galaxies, including ours, to stream in that direction like rafts on a sort of "river in space."

All this structure is baffling. Cosmologists say the blast from the big bang was extremely smooth and uniform, according to the background radiation it allegedly left behind. How could such a smooth start have led to such massive and complex structures? "The latest crop of walls and attractors intensifies the mystery of how so much structure could have formed within the 15-billion-year age of the universe," admits Scientific American—a problem that only gets worse as Freedman and others roll back the estimated age of the cosmos still more.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10858311


Love it when creationists haul out and dust off 20-year-old quotes. The age of the universe was reliably determined to be 13.75 billion years +/- 0.11 billion years several years ago. Any prior findings are obsolete.
 Quoting: ToSeek

"The latest crop of walls and attractors intensifies the mystery of how so much structure could have formed within the 15-billion-year age of the universe," admits Scientific American—a problem that only gets worse as Freedman and others roll back the estimated age of the cosmos still more.

Article says 'it couldn't have happened WITHIN 15 billion yrs', and then says 'and now universe is thought to be even younger', paraphrasing.

If you're implying I'm a creationist, I'm not. That usually means,I think, a young-earth-er, whereas I don't have an opinion on that.

Re: Is there scientific evidence for an intelligent designer aka God?
Ok, how about this.

Evolution takes thousands of years to develop a trait, right? Ok, so mankind, this go around, has only had transmitted sound for a little over 112 years (Marconi sending radio waves in 1898). We have had transmitted video for 103 years (Georges Rignoux and A. Fournier 1909. So, there has been very little time for any evolutionary traits to develop. However, from the very beginning of these broadcasts, continuing up until today, there has been a trait in women that was DESIGNED in.

I replied this before :
"Well, yes it's true. But we know you're much better off paying attention to us than polluting your mind with that other kwap."

I thought what you said was funny and tried to respond in kind.

I was referring to the sarcastic, angry quran comment as being from one of our glbtq atheist scold-friends.

I believe in 'Design' too, especially when I see how suppressed and lied about it seems to be, and how ridiculously over-angry its' detractors seem to be. And OY VEY! Always with the straw men set up as foes!
But I don't think we're evolving but degenerating, so that we're somewhere in that process, rather than in process of evolution.
