8. This theory of 'intelligent design' was soundly rebutted in the 18th
century -- before evolution was even a gleem in Darwin's eye. It's basically the old watchmaker argument come back to haunt us. If one accepts the idea that the universe seems to be the result of intelligent design and that therefore there must be a designer, then it begs the question as to who or what designed or made the designer. I mean God appears to be a damn intelligent design in his own right. Did he just pop into existence in a big bang too??? Is he but a timeless singularity out of which everything arose.

Good grief -- we're back where we started from.

By the way, if there is an intelligent designer -- I wonder if we might have an intelligent discussion about some flaws that have become apparent in his design. Is he open to criticism; is he willing to talk upgrades. Did he really design Bush??? Does he have bad days too? Maybe he should take it up with his maker!
