If there was an intelligent designer why are there so many mistakes? Why would there even be evolution as everything would be perfectly designed for their environment and there would be no need for change.
Have you compared the incident rates of 'mistakes'? How many are perfectly normal to a degree and now many aren't? Probably the highest statistics of being normal are those that are natural

I have no doubts that we are miracles and too miraculous to be the result of some doubtful beginning. But it is not only that, it is the things that have happened also in my life that support and indeed deepen my Faith. The older I get, the more firmly I believe!
I think evolution is more befiting a real God than a magic trick with clay figures.

Exactly my point , you became one in your mind.
Now your temple is guarded by an imaginary host , and you a slave to

***Hawking: no God behind the Big Bang
UPDATE: Apparently you can now participate in the Times discussion of Hawking’s article, with Richard Dawkins and two Times writers, for free. Go here. Remember, it starts at 9:30 EST, which is ten minutes from this posting.
UPDATE 2: Check out the discussion: Dawkins is making mincemeat of the Times religion editor, who’s bobbing, weaving, and ducking the hard questions. It’s a rout!

So much for physics revealing “the mind of God.” Lest anybody still think that Stephen Hawking is religious, even in a deistic sense, check out his new book, The Grand Design (coauthored with American physicist Leonard Miodinow), available in the US September 7. Here’s part of Hawkings’s precis, taken from the Amazon listing:

Look what religion is doing to the world, making us fight each other. It's time to put down your bible and run away from the churches and mosques and synagogs , they are the damnation and destruction of humanity.

That's nice but God tells you that the bible is complete and no need to cause yourself to be confused, so just stick to what God tells you to. God has said not to sdd or tske swsy from the bible for a reason, that being false doctrone. Don't you think if God wanted this other information in his bible he would've added it to it . Stay away from things like your talking asout and stick to what God wants you to know as he is smarter than you and I. Isaiah 55:8-9

Right.

Medical findings present that, realistically, the foreskin is fraught with some problems that don't indicate a "divine origin".

This is where you can assert that "sin" brought about the problems, not the deity.

Maybe the deity was a little lazy or distracted during that process, among the many others that just didn't work like the deity planned, or...

It's myth, created by ancient peoples trying to explain their place in the world.

A deity myth that is only one among many, and not unique or singular.

If we believe in our Creator, then we must believe HE is brilliant above and beyond our comprehension as such. We need the nutrients of the earth, we all know that, so why would it be hard to believe that we were created from the earth? More sense than being a relative of a dark ages fishy :)

Yes he told me this. No God likes his people to be informed and no it was in 33AD as you must be referring to the false doctrine knoown as the Catholics religion. The church was established on 33AD, you would know this if you have read your bible. Go to Acts and read Acts chapter 1 and 2 and you'll know that you made a mistake in time. cThe catholic church is the second biggest deceiver of mankind, the first is the Quran.
