If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

At Reddit there is something called "Debate Evolution" even though there is no debate. Evolution is fact. Magical creationism is bullshit. Period. This is what I wrote there:

I stopped reading when I saw the word "teleological".

Teleology: the philosophical attempt to describe things in terms of their apparent purpose, directive principle, or goal.

Science is all about evidence, not philosophy.

I just noticed this: "intelligently designed thing".

Next time be honest. Instead of using code words like "design" to write about your childish fantasies, call it what it really is: "The Magic Man Did It."

A head's up for normal people (not know-nothing bible-thumping science deniers):

The 1st chapter of the book published in 1961 called "The Blood of the Lamb" by Peter de Vries is all about the evidence for evolution from embryology.

It is difficult for me to imagine the stupidity required to throw out two centuries of scientific progress and replace it with the most moronic fantasy ever invented, "Magical Intelligent Design Creation Out Of Nothing".

Update: One more thing. "Imperfect designs are also the products of designers, so a design’s imperfections cannot rule it out as a created thing."

You are comparing something manufactured by humans to something that requires a god fairy's magic wand. Humans don't use magic. Therefore your comparison is ridiculous, not to mention childish and idiotic.

There is no debate about the established truth of evolution which is the strongest fact of science. What you need to do is grow up, educate yourself, and face facts.
