|Nightlight applies the logic of "designed vestigial structures" to devastating effect:|
|The generalization of this argument is very powerful against neo-Darwinism (RM+NS) — any biological phenomena being pointed as a “proof” (or indicator) of underlying randomness or mechanical nature of evolution, which also has an analogue in technological, scientific, or cultural evolution cannot serve neo-Darwinian cause since we know that latter forms do have intelligent causes.|
Let's really push this generalization to demonstrate its POWER.
- a lawn sprinkler demonstrates that rain is not a natural phenomenon, but rather the product of intelligent agency.
- man-made ponds and reservoirs demonstrate that lakes and seas are not natural phenomena, but rather the result of intelligent agency.
- a trench dug by a back hoe demonstrates that the Grand Canyon is not a natural phenomenon, but rather the result of intelligent agency.
- a breeze generated by a window fan demonstrates that wind is not a natural phenomenon, but rather the result of intelligent agency.
Does that mean that because humans have so far been unable to achieve a net energy gain from nuclear fusion, the sun is currently not designed, but will become designed if and when this problem is solved?
