Following my last post, I was just perusing through some of the comments on intelligent design by following the #intelligentdesign tag and came across this draw-dropping statement:
Occams Razor- the simplest answer is often correct. That’s why #intelligentdesign works for me
To which I replied to the user:
@terrycrews Evolution by natural selection is stunningly simple. Earth designed by a complex super intelligent being is not.
When I saw “Occams Razor” in his Tweet, I thought, “Oh, I guess he is going to say something critical of ID,” since natural selection is truly a simple and powerful mechanism by which humankind developed from lower forms. I was floored when I learned that he actually thought ID was the simpler explanation. No one with even a cursory knowledge of evolution by natural selection could utter such a statement. Obviously, he has yet to comprehend that a being capable of fashioning the world out of nothing would have to be many large degrees more complex than his creation. The potter is, after all, a million fold more complex than the pot. And so it must be with any creator.
