Why does one seem to be the more rational inference to some, while others go with another choice?

Ummm...because we can actually see the mechanism of evolution at work today?


But we can see the results of design from known designers today too. Design has certain characteristics that makes it distiguishable from non-design.

1. We know intelligent agents design things (observation)
2. We can tell design without seeing the designer in action from its signs
3. We find the same characteristics of design in the cell
4. We infer design in the cell.

Doesn't this only break down at #4, in the sense that some are not willing to accept the inference?
