Everyone says God created us in his image. Really? Have you ever looked at your scrotum? That's God's work? God took the most sensitive nerves we have, tied them all up in a little sac, and hung them out side the body?

--------------------------------------------

The point being that if an intelligent designer really is responsible for micro managing design, he ain't so intelligent. Case in point, robots, which are clearly the result of intelligent design, have all their sensitive stuff well protected. And if it is intelligent design, are extinctions really just economic obsolescences?

The problem with ID is it always tries to go too far. Deism is not enough. God has to be more involved. Creating the context for everything is not enough. There has to be a mother cell that contained all the genetic data for everything that lives or lived.

As Ben Stein put it so well, if a loving god doesn't have his fingerprints all over everything, then we are not divine, but just mud. How arrogant to suggest we fallible humans are divine. How insecure must a man be to feel he can have no purpose if god did not give it to him?

Science and theology are so very close, but that separation from a divine source creating all then letting it unfold, and an involved creator who constantly immerses itself in all matters of life and the universe is a chasm that will never be easily crossed.
