Sometimes, when I'm discussing or debating issues with online atheists, agnostics, and evolutionists, the huge topic of Intelligent Design comes up, and they ask me to explain the Intelligent Design hypothesis to them.

Quantum Mechanics has nothing to do with god, nor is there any reason for it to have anything with god.
quantum do not talk 'bout mechanics olny..but talk 'bout the universal law..'nature law'(mean, the law of God)..think holistically :)

well, i give u very simple question..maybe u cannot answer it in the right way if u think partially:

Who put all stars in the sky? can man put it?

Who create perfect body of human? can man create it?

Who design the earth, sun, all planets, all galaxy, etc? can man design it?

Who??:)

It is simply a natural process. You don't need to invoke an invisible friend with magical powers.

I am going to introduce you to my "friend":

The Null Hypothesis. This is one of science's greatest tools. It guides your beliefs so that you can accomplish scientific studies and not get distracted by nonsense.

The Null Hypothesis says that if there is no evidence for something there is no reason to believe that something exists.

One example of have seen is that a "scientist" notices that he keeps losing socks. He sits and thinks for a while and comes up with the hypothesis that aliens stole his socks. Being a scientist he knows he has to test his hypothesis. At the start he has two sets: Aliens stole his socks or Something Else Happened.

Without evidence the Null Hypothesis tells us that we cannot put them into the "Aliens stole my socks" category.

So when you want to say that God made the stars we ask "Where is your evidence?"

When astronomers write a theory of how stars form they have to base it upon evidence. Ask them and they are more than happy to share their evidence with you. I have never seen any evidence from theists at all.

It is not up to me to prove that your god did not make the stars etc.. It is up to you to provide evidence for it. And here is a hint, respected "holy" writing by a dyspeptic camel humper is not evidence.

You are asking the wrong questions.

Did anybody have to "put" the stars in the sky?

Is your body perfect, or merely an evolved organism that has functioned well enough to survive. No doctor would call us perfect.

Who needed to design the earth, sun, and planets? Why do you assume anyone did.

And lastly if "someone" did, why do you in all your arrogance prohibit "Him" from using evolution as the method?

If there is a God, He has left his mark throughout creation. By all evidence He has created the life we see through evolution. We cannot fake the universe or the evidence.

However, some clever human CAN fake hearing the magic words of God, and convincing his fellow humans to follow him whatever he says "in the name of God", doing whatever he wants, giving him six year old girls to marry, forcing his son in law to divorce a female he coveted...butchering his opponents...just for example...in the name of God most high. Yeah right.

1. No one needed to, they are the result of chemical and physical processes, what we call nature.

2. Yes, but ethics prevent us from doing that, but if your god is responsible for the human body, then it's a total moron because it made a LOT of really bad mistakes.

3. What "design?"

4. You are presupposing here.

honestly, i'm a practical architect..i understand 'design'(include design process until detail) more deeply

it's impossible the universe exist by itself..
accidental? coincidental? of course, it's "absurd idea"

"coincidental design concept"? it's impossible in my way of thinking..i think in holistic perspective to "see" the universe & all nature law..it must be designed intelligently..i'm sure 100%:)

You might convince yourself with that nonsense, there is not reason in he world for other people to believe it.

Also it is clear that you do not understand evolution or even basic science.

No scientist claims that life arose by accident. That would be a strawman argument. Why can't the universe exist on its own. You claim it needed a maker. Then who made the maker. All we can work with is what we see and observe. If you can find evidence for your god let's hear it. If you can't then you need to admit that you have nothing.

You say it's impossible, yet you offer no evidence to support that assertion.

Wrong, its just beyond your comprehension

Since 10^-34 of a second (billions of times faster than the fasted clock tick on the fastest computer) after the event it is know exactly how the universe exists. Prior to that time there are several (I believe 27 at the last count) sound scientific theories and none of them include goddidit.

The attitude,I dont know how it happened so god must have done it wedges you firmly in the bronze age.
