Intelligent Design has an elegant answer to all problems posed to it: God did it!

What about gravity? God did it!

What about the moon? God did it!

See how easy that is?

Almost as easy as calling you a troll. Almost.

Yes, God DID do it. That gravity, thermodynamics and all the laws of physics can mostly be explained does not negate the God Who created it or sustains it.

That you do not believe it is not the universal measuring stick for others. That you deny it does not invalidate it. And the in-your-face simpleton labels you throw back at the believer is a purely sanctimonious retort. Faith required in the astronomical possibility of evolution is far greater than a faith required to believe in God, but the God Whom I choose to believe in is far more complex and powerful than that of evolution….so, why is that so simpleton?

If I pour coffee in a cup, why is there coffee in the cup?
A) Because of my actions
B) Because of a combination of physical laws which caused it to happen, such as coffee being in the pot, the pot being tipped over the cup, gravity etc.
C) Both. (And countless other details, including the fact that some farmer grew the coffee beans, who used some tools and supplies from other folks etc.)

I prefer answer A). It is simple and pragmatic. Am I wrong to do so? Is the simplest explination (all other things being equal) usually the best?

There was a time when matter did not exist. But there never has been a time when nothing existed...otherwise nothing would exist now. You may well ask; "How did matter suddenly come into existence"?

1 John 1-4: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God; 3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
