Sorry for misleading you Randy. A bit of context re the previous posted info.....
The model cont. (on this "smaller than a proton" spec of matter)............
So on this imperceptibly small spec, a far smaller thin film life arose on a very limited area, developing via an evolutionary process in which almost
all life forms have become extinct along the way. Which seems driven by one thing.....the struggle for survival. As a system, nature is not a kind
one.A process where, largely, creatures must procure other creatures to devour (sometimes while still alive), each day, simply part of their struggle
to survive. Nature doesn't care about our beliefs, it seems.
it is estimated that 99.9% of all species that have ever existed are now extinct.
Then, eventually, a hominid type creatures evolved. While most of these creatures became extinct (that we know of..... Bigfoot?
), in the last
"blink of an eye" (in evolutionary terms) one of these creatures rose to dominance (though we almost didn't make it at all, very close). Yet for most
of this "blink of an eye", if they didn't succumb to starvation, the elements, disease, floods, famine, natural disasters or become devoured
themselves,they still had the task of day to day survival, at the expense of other creatures. While our designer watches, either powerless, or
unwilling to refine his system, completely consistent with a designer who doesn't exist.
A process that continues to this day for a large proportion of our species, a dour struggle for survival amidst............. defects, starvation,
poverty, disease, natural disasters.............
Yet among this species of whom their own extinction itself is ensured, (yes at some point we will go "the way of the Dodo") there seems a sub species
(particularly middle class Americans) that look at this in all of its magnitude and find the whole immensity of the last 13.8 billion years of the
universe was "intelligently designed" all for this latest, very transient, minute, otherwise explainable, evolutionary saveur de jour
on a very
limited area, on an imperceptible spec.....WTF? Worse still, apparently the design was so flawed we didn't live up to expectations. After being wiped
out once, it became necessary for our designer to appear and have himself tortured by having spikes driven through hands and feet, so we could be
forgiven for his inherent design flaws.....again WTF?.
Some of them even claim that science miscalculated slightly by about 13.799999 billion years or so. Based on stories of ignorant ancient fisherman or
goat herders, from a very illiterate and superstitious part of the world (even for its time) either obscured in history or told generations after the
supposed events, none of which has any evidence historical or otherwise, much of which we know either did not, or cannot, happen.
There doesn't appear to be anything intelligent about this design, though if we can find an argument that isn't a logical fallacy, it might be worth
considering. If some being designed us purposefully, surely he must despise us to levels we can't fathom. If he loves his creation, much of his
creation aren't feeling it. No wonder he keeps away.
This model seems far from intelligent. If we are looking for ways to improve from the perspective of an omnipotent, omniscient intelligence (or even
an average mortal one), there are simply too many to enumerate.
