Guest Posted June 26, 2008 Report Share Posted June 26, 2008 Like I said (if you actually read my nice long posts ;D), I don't have it... but other people do but first you have to propose a system that you claim to come about by design, then we counter that. I thought that was the proposed setup? No. I already know there's no verifiable explanation for how we developed the ability to run or think or see, only theories as to how these things might have happened gradually via evolution. My request was to provide evidence that apparent design arises via unguided processes. There should be little difficulty demonstrating this since it must be extraordinarily common within evolution. So far the examples are hurricanes, crystals, and religion. As to my belief in evolution ... if you take the first three paragraphs of the wikipedia article on Evolution, there is nothing I disagree with. Species obviously change and adapt. The question is whether or not this is the explanation for how all species originated. That's where the distinction comes in between evolution as fact and theory. I've never seen a single documented example, as opposed to a theoretical model, that shows how features that show the appearance of design (partly defined as complex interaction which solves a problem) actually arose without guidance. From what I've observed, the actual evolution we have observed is an astounding demonstration of resilience and adaptability built into the fabric of living beings. In a sense, evolution itself appears to be a wonder of design. However, I disagree that the evidence is anywhere close to strong enough to suggest that this inherent adaptability of living things actually serves as the source of all the variety and apparent design we observe.
