Quote of the Day: " No intelligent designer would design an eye backwards!"

"No intelligent designer would design an eye backwards!" -- Johnson and Losos

Is the above statement an expression of

a) science
b) theology
c) philosophy?

Does it belong

a) in a science class or science textbook?

b) in a school system that espouses the separation of church (i.e., religion) and state?

It seems Darwinists can freely sprinkle anti-design comments in their science textbooks, but get to rigorously scrub any comments that might be construed as supporting a positive design hypothesis.

And what if it turned out the design of the eye was not "backwards"? Could that be used then as positive evidence of design?

Of course not. The design rhetoric of darwinists only goes one way.

Design you disagree with doesn't mean that the design wasn't created by an intelligent Designer. It may in fact show your own ignorance by showing you're not fully comprehending the actual design parameters compromises that went into its functioning. The fact that the eye exists and works at all is testament to the Intelligence that created it.
