Intelligent Design

Katie and all three boys are sleeping over at MaryAnn’s house. I get the whole house to myself. Ahhh, sleep, wonderful sleep.

I was just reading an article in the New Yorker about Intelligent Design. The basics of ID, as it is called, is that living cells are so complex and specific, that they could not have been the process of natural selection and therefore must be designed, by something, long long ago.

In the beginning, there was nothing. Then God said, “Let there be DeoxyriboNucleic Acid!”

Why is it so difficult for human’s to understand. There is a rational logical explanation for everything. No matter how complex or complicated. We are so silly to think that because we can’t explain it, or don’t understand it, then GOD must have made it so. Lightning is not God’s anger. Thunder is not bowling in the sky.

People get so wound up over this issue. It doesn’t deserve this much attention. As my brother likes to say, “We have starving children all over the world. Why don’t we tackle that problem first?”

Anyway, I am ranting, but the intelligent design thing is just silly.

Whatya think?
