Talk:What is intelligent design?

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

scientific maybe[edit]

intelligent design may be scientific because it does permit a mundane designer rather than supernatural and actually does not consider creation at all, only design. That neatly avoids the obvious questions whose answers move into religion. The dessign arguement presented by Dembski as 'complex specified information' and Behe as 'irreducible complexity' which is a special case of CSI are testable and falsifiable, at least on a case by case basis. It leaves a large line of investigation off-limits though because it leads very quickly to the Christian God of the Bible, at least in the belief of the Design Institute management.

Yeah, but at some point you gotta ask who this designer guy is and when he's doing his thing. Šţěŗĭļė Turing machine 23:36, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
The designer guy is a space Alien named Fruugzat from the planet Zomrg. But really, the observations show that animals and plants are adapted and have a complex system, but there is no logical way we can find out the creator. User:Mectrixctic 01:02, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
