Detecting Design Requires a Trained Eye
|April 29, 2009||Posted by William Dembski under Intelligent Design|
I received this email from a colleague in London who used to have an office in the place where the Shard London Bridge (a massive skyscraper) is being built. His insight about design detection requiring a trained eye is good. His insight about Darwinists having purposely (by design?) trained their eyes not to see design is great. Indeed, if you can’t see design in biology …
… Look at this http://www.shardlondonbridge.com.
This will become the tallest building in the whole of Europe. It is being built in the place of a semi-tall building I was working in not more than 3 months ago. I have since moved close by to another office because of the building work.
I use the public subway system to arrive at London Bridge Subway station to get to work. I took this picture [see below]. In the picture you see the work that is going on on the ground to start this tall building.
To the untrained eye, it looks like a mess and the workers don’t seem to know what they’re doing. They seem to be placed around everywhere. Why aren’t they building the thing?
When I walk past it, it reminds me of the cell. The biochemists see a mess in the cell with molecules sloppily floating around because of their ignorance and the deliberate Darwinist glasses they wear.
But in the cell are perfectly orchestrated parts all doing their specific bit to ensure the whole cell is healthy and functioning to support life. The picture is representative of this to me.
The design is there, but it needs as much a trained eye as to remove the design blocking ideas like chance and natural law.
