Not So Intelligent Design

Of all the ignorant statements that are often used in defense of religion, one of the most annoying to me is the idea that human beings are well-designed. The argument assumes that an intelligent creator did a great job with the human body. The truth is, of course, that human beings aren’t particularly well-designed. We can’t live for more than a few minutes on over 80% of the planet.

We are not even designed to live on about 80% of this planet. But since we were designed to live on the land we are particulary well designed.

I agree with you. I didn't particularly agree with the article but posted it in fairness to those who are strict evolutionists.

As for myself, I believe in what Zecharia Sitchin has written as to mankind's creation.
