Quote of the Day: "You Start To Look At Evolution As An Engineering Project"

"Once one overcomes their prejudice and admits intelligent design as a live option for science to consider then you start to look at “evolution” as an engineering project instead of a big accident." -- Dave S.
We are not supposed to look at evolution as an engineering project.

It is, however, OK to "reverse-engineer" extant biological structures and find all sorts of useful applications from nature's elegantly designed structures.

If everything were here by accident one would expect to see much greater diversity in creation than we see presently and in the fossil record. After all if you throw a hundred engineers at a project you will get a hundred different designs to do the same thing. In the accidental world of the Darwinist there would be an infinite number of engineers (random chance) coming up with an infinite number of designs. Instead we see the same basic design modified over and over again.

We would certainly expect things to be a lot more ugly, unrefined, and monstrous. And we certainly wouldn't expect the emergence of the sublime -- like the emotion of love. And moral sense. And concepts like justice, truth, beauty to emerge in the brain.
