Intelligent Design Creation theory should include explanations for the beginning of our universe with a body of principles belonging to the subject of it's design. What caused our universe to come into being? Why is our universe arranged and designated to do what it does? Something that is created will show signs of originality of thought and will have meaningful forms. Our universe and Earth shows all the signs of having a Creator.

Why can't you get this creationism to be elevated to theory? Where is the evidence supporting it? How does knowing the "who" even help us cure Polio?

Understanding how God has patterned systems to work will lead to cures of all kinds.

how do patterned systems show a god? seems more like a mindless repetition to me. the way a non-living system would act.

Patterns are not mindless direction. All patterns have Reason for being where and what they are and they are a result of a command from the Creator.

why would you think that? what suggests that? in fact, a repetitive system would be a natural way for a non-designed universe to work, wouldn't it?

.

Intelligence is the only observable force in the universe capable of creating complexity.
The existence of the profound complexity of living systems offers irrefutable evidence of intelligent design.
A conclusion that random forces can create complex systems can only be explained by a pre-commitment to the religion of atheism.
It is obvious that the atheists on this forum are religiously committed to their worldview because they willfully abandon scientific observation in favor of evo-fairytales of a primordial soup, worms evolving into humans, etc.

No. A system must follow a pattern that has been shown.

not even close to true. there is immense complexity in the universe and there isn't one shred of evidence to suggest any intelligence design or created it.

try to stick to the known facts and leave myth out of the discussion.

I said that intelligence is the only OBSERVED force that is proven capable of creating complexity.
You observe the universe and ASSUME that no intelligence created it. Random forces have no proven capacity to create complexity.

I agree, let.s keep myths out of the discussion... Like the MYTH that natural selection can create complexity.

what else besides natural selection would have created diversity. there is no shred of evidence of any guiding intelligence to the universe at all. not one shred. yet there is tons of evidence for natural selection.

and no, i observe the universe and its complaxity and ...again....know that there is not one teensy shred of evidence of any guiding or creating intelligence. not one shred...

so it is just the facts I am dealing with, while it is YOU that keeps bringing your mythical creator/intelligence into the deal.

There is no God! The Universe does not need such a being. And if there was such an impossibility as this God that you alledge the Bible does not tells us about it.

I have never observed intelligence in anyone who asserts their deeply held beliefs for the existence of an intelligent designer.

Where did this intelligent designer come from? How did it come to exist?

And you are just plain wrong about complexity arising from intelligence: The Universe exists under laws that it can not violate. The Universe is becoming conscious. Human beings have the possibility of participating in what the Universe is doing. To do so one has to "see" oneself. The "final frontier" is within our psychology where the ultimate evolution can occur

The possibility for the arising of human beings in biosphers through out the entire Universe existed in the first few moments of the phase-transition known as the Big Bang.

Your Santa Claus God does not exist except in your fear. Everything you know about this invisible magical being is hearsay: you mamma and pappa told you and now anyone who disagrees with this nonsense and lies is wrong. That is not intelligent.

You have the evidence.
Intelligence has been PROVEN to be capable of creating complexity.
Natural selection is IMAGINED to create complexity because God has been philosophically REJECTED.
Natural selection has been observed to be INCAPABLE of creating complexity.
What do you get after thousands of generations of fruitily experiments with fruit flies? New species with over traits? No, you get mutated fruit flies.
Your religion is the only obstacle that stands in the way of you acknowledging evidence.

Your recycled evo-babbling is pointless.
