If >you read those expert opinions at: >www.perceptions.couk.com/creation.html >you should see that the options, although limited and maybe >including a putative 'creation', also include a more likely >'intervention'. <snip> You confuse conclusions and observations based on the understanding of your discourse. I your "expert" opinions. Your "experts" say: "From that POV, depending on your inclinations, you're almost bound to conclude that our Universe is either a `supernatural creation', or maybe some sort of experiment by advanced beings." And: "The history of life is consistent with Darwinian evolution, although life's increasing complexity - including the very recent appearance of modern man - is also consistent with (but not proof of) the possibility of some special creative agent existing." And: "I do not believe that any scientist who examined the evidence would fail to draw the inference that the laws of nuclear physics have been deliberately designed with regard to the consequences they produce inside the stars." And: "there is a grand design in the Universe that favours the development of intelligent life" Etc. So "Life is fabricated by life, proof being that the conditions for its occurrence is so improbable. The genetic code would be a program which allows life to adapt and evolve" seems to sum it up quite succinctly, no? I may be no expert (and, btw, what do you know about that?) but, if 10^123 is a bit too much for me, I can still add one to one. <snip> >You might also realize that I express no firm opinion of my own. >That's because I don't feel that we have enough information to >be sure of any conclusion.

I note that, in the same sentence, you refuse to express your opinion but you pride yourself in being a deeper thinker than one who does. In the same time, Cartesian reasoning - e.g. clear understanding of where you're going with your material - is judged by you to be at the same level as the ones you assassinated Galileo. You evidently did not understand my observations, which started with "If I understand correctly". There is much to be said about the semantics of your wording, and it would probably start with something about open- mindedness. Vincent Boudreau Listen to 'Strange Days...
