Designed or Not Designed

When talking to people on campus I often point out that we see design everywhere. Our clothing, our electronics, our cars and buildings are all designed. This is human based design, demonstrating that design exists. That is not debatable.

When we look at bacteria under a microscope, we see an organism that is more complex than anything humans have ever designed. Humans have never designed a living, reproducing organism, large or microscopic (which would be many times more difficult than something we can clearly see). Se we know living organism are super complex but scientists in secular universities assume they came about by natural causes. Design is not even considered!

So why is only evolution or “not design” taught in public schools? It is because policy makers and educators are committed to material and this is based on their belief, despite obvious evidence to the contrary, that life came about by natural causes alone.

Yes, natural selection happens; viruses, bacteria and species change, that is not in dispute. But to say that the common descent of humans from ape-like creatures is some sort of undisputed fact is a world gone mad. While changes within a species are obvious, just look at the varieties of dogs by artificial selection, the evidence for common descent from simpler species to more-complex species is vacant.

The evolution only dogmatism that promotes early-life-to-humans evolution (common descent) lacks scientific evidence, it’s illogical and it needs to be allowed to be challenged in the public schools! After all, modern scientific evidence shouts for design.
