Over at AiG Busted:
Someone made the argument that buildings are analogous to the design in living things which drew a common reply:
“No, buildings are something we routinely observe human beings building, so there’s no question that they were designed.”
I wondered why there’s no question so I asked:
Why do you say that they were designed if the biological brains that supposedly designed them have their roots in blind, unthinking processes? You claim to recognize the “design” of “intelligent” beings when evolution easily explains the illusion of intelligence in terms of unthinking, unknowing processes.
I’m not sure why some treat self-evident truths that are evident in being an intelligent being as glaringly obvious while also arguing that the “universal acid” of Darwinism can and must be used to “explain” away all intelligence in the name of science/knowledge. If science is shifted away from the pursuit of the truth and instead towards the pursuit of “natural” explanations then all knowledge must be explained in terms of ignorant and blind processes. Only people who are willing to lose their minds will agree with the original shift away from the search for truth.
