Intelligent Design Argument For Existence Of God

Decent Essays

The Intelligent Design Argument for the existence of God is as scientific as Darwinian Evolution. The Intelligent Design scientist use the scientific method as much as evolutionary scientists. See “Intelligent design begins with the observation that intelligent agents produce complex and specified information (CSI). Design theorists hypothesize that if a natural object was designed, it will contain high levels of CSI. Scientists then perform experimental tests upon natural objects to determine if they contain complex and specified information” (Intelligent Design). Both are simply theories that have yet to be proven or disproven. Science is observational, and since no one was around in the beginning no one can truly “scientifically” know how the universe came about. …show more content…

A good illustration is “If you want to build a computer system, all the information that goes into that system must come from a higher source of information: a computer designer and a software engineer” (Anderson, Catalucci, and Jeanson). DNA is the most complex information there is and evolutionists would say the way we got this complex information is through an unguided evolutionary process or mutations, but mutations actually take information from DNA! Additionally, information cannot come from nonliving materials like rocks or gas. Thus, the intelligent Designer must be the ultimate source from which all information comes. Additionally, life does not come from nonlife. Even if scientists were to prove life can come from nonlife in a laboratory and their experiment worked then they would still prove themselves wrong because they would then serve as the Intelligent Designers. In conclusion, Intelligent Design is a science that builds upon all we know. For example, if I were to find a watch in the forest I would know by prior observation there must be a watchmaker. I believe this can be applied to our complex
