Intelligent design in nature would have more to do with examples such as da Vinci's Vitruvian man, based on the prinicples of PHI, would it not?<quoted text>
Your God >was created< by humans in man's image, and it is only kept "alive" in the minds of humans who are susceptible to the emo-mental frailty of drones like yourself.
You believe, you want, you feel, you judge, you preconceive - you do not discern, you do not think, you do not perceive and you definitely don't know.
There is no reason to be impressed with Denton's marveling at biochemistry, and certainly there is no rationality in leaping from that to Goddiditwithmagic.
An airliner is not a virus, microbe, gnat or human. It is not in any way, shape or form proof of intelligent design in nature. Just like your deity, it is nothing more or less than a purpose built man-made construct.
The comparisons then being based on airliners (like MANY other things) are indeed engineered mathematically as well...and tt's a pretty impressive sight to behold a 747 carrying a space shuttle, when anyone actuallt stops to THINK, just what went INTO making such possible.
And imagine, if ancient civilizations had NOT recorded some of what they had seen, heard, thought and felt. Lucky for us, AND modern SCIENCE-that indeed some DID,because such certainly makes for interesting contemplation and study!
Interesting article(edited for length)
Israeli archaeologists say a 3,000-year-old fragment of a ceramic jar found near Jerusalem's Temple Mount, dating back to the days of King David and King Solomon, bears a mysterious inscription that ranks as the earliest alphabetical written text ever found in the city.
The inscription is incised into the clay of a neckless ceramic jar found at Jerusalem's Ophel excavation site. The text is in the Canaanite language, which predates Israelite rule and the prevalence of Hebrew script.....
....The archaeologists said the fragment bearing the inscription was found along with pieces of six other large jars of the same type. All those fragments were used to stabilize the earth fill under the second floor of the building in which they were discovered, which dates to the 10th century B.C.— the era when Jerusalem was ruled by David and Solomon, two of the Bible's best-known figures.
The composition of the clay suggests that the makings for the jars originated in the central hill country near Jerusalem. Ahituv said the inscription is not complete: The full text probably wound around the jar's shoulder, and the fragment shows the end of the text, plus the first letter from the beginning. The archaeologists say it may have been written by one of Jerusalem's Jebusite residents. According to the Bible, the Jebusites were a Canaanite tribe who inhabited the city before David's conquest.
If the dating for the fragment is correct, the age of the inscription would rival other examples of proto-Canaanite inscriptions ever found — including a controversial text found on a fragment of pottery unearthed at the Hirbet Qeiyafa dig southwest of Jerusalem. Although that text was also written using Canaanite characters, archaeologists have suggested that it includes Hebrew words and thus represents the oldest known Hebrew inscription.
The inscription that Mazar and her colleagues describe is about 250 years older than the earliest Hebrew inscription found in Jerusalem. The Ophel excavation site lies in an area of Jerusalem known as the City of David, beyond the southern edge of the Temple Mount.
