Observe, this screen-shot, a citation from Dawkins:
(Pardon the bars.)
Let's type that out:
CRD: "We may say that a living body or organ is well designed if it has attributes that an intelligent and knowledgeable engineer might have built into it in order to achieve a sensible purpose . . . [A]ny engineer can recognize an object that has been designed . . . just by looking at the structure of the object." [The Blind Watchmaker, 1986, p. 21.]
Yes, Dawkins et al try to suggest all sorts of rebutting arguments, but in the end, that stands there.
And, when we start by looking at just the cell, we see a gated, encapsulated, molecular nanotech metabolising entity with an integral self replicating facility that uses codes, algorithms, storage tapes and more.
So much so, that this is what Michael Denton had to say, in his 1985 Evolution: a theory in crisis:
[[Denton, Michael, Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, Adler, 1986, pp. 327 – 331. This work is a classic that is still well worth reading. Emphases added. (NB: The 2009 work by Stephen Meyer of Discovery Institute, Signature in the Cell, brings this classic argument up to date. The main thesis of the book is that: "The universe is comprised of matter, energy, and the information that gives order [[better: functional organisation] to matter and energy, thereby bringing life into being. In the cell, information is carried by DNA, which functions like a software program. The signature in the cell is that of the master programmer of life." Given the sharp response that has provoked, the onward e-book responses to attempted rebuttals, Signature of Controversy, would also be excellent, but sobering and sometimes saddening, reading.) ]
Time to think again, about the abundant evidence all around us that points to a designed world. Including, a designed world of life. END
