Intelligent Design Theory
The recent topic of Intelligent design is quite an interesting theory. I do believe that there is a point where both science and God merges. However such a point would be hard for humans to understand, explain or comprehend. The scientific community is not going to believe in the existance of an Intelligent Designer and the Religious community is not going to reject the presence of God. All in all it would be a time consuming argument and or theories which would never amount upto anything. This is ofcourse if both sides give an open chance and be willing to work hand in hand rather then work against each other as the case seems to be happening.
I have always believed both rationally (to a point) and faithfully (beyond all points) in the presence of a creator who is both intelligent and ever lasting. I would like to point out to the so called critics of the intelligent design theory: Weather than can prove the creation of their parents by using logical first hand experience. I am sure as kids all the so called scientists learn about their parents from in-direct expriences which are shared with them through their parents, uncles, aunt's, relatives all contemporaries of their parents. No matter how scientific the professor at the university is, no matter which phd qualification he holds, he CANNOT and WILL not ever be able to experimentally prove through first hand experience how his parents were created. Then how can we mere humans with limited ablity and limited intelligence prove or describe our creator "The Intelligent God" directly or with experimentation. We will never ever be able to do it, all we could do is rely on indirect evidence which again is at the liberty of the speaker. He/she can twist it to whatever he or she desires. I am sure the logical reader will understand this viewpoint that a cause can create and effect however an effect cannot predict the occurrence of a cause to any probable garurantee.
Secondly, we should not discard things we don't understand as being metaphysical or term them as ignorant logical. We should take the steps and iniative from all perspectives to try to understand them and try to explain them to the best of our ablities. If we cannot explain them we should draw on the qualities of humility and not ego, and accept that such qualities and designs are created by a being which is superior in intelligence to us. The scientific community is under the notion that they solely are superior in terms of the IQ factor and that nothing can really surpass them. The hardcore scientific community believes that everything can be explained by experiments and reproduciblity. Yet, we see so many people being born and so many people dying everyday and still we cannot interfere with this basic process of life and death which has been going on for so many millions of years. Insipid of seeing reproduciblity and trends we are unable to control death or bring life within an experimental setup laboratory. Ofcourse we can use the raw materials and cells already alive to clone things and make stuff. Nonethless we cannot put life into the inanimate or things that are not naturally alive.
It only makes sense to believe in a logical manner that just as we humans with our limited intelligence have carried out tasks like cloning. The supreme being we call God out of His highest Intelligence has created and put life and energy within human beings. The sheep dolly would however believe that inspite of being cloned by humans she was given birth by her own species which is not the case we we know, however to dolly the sheep her creator would be her sheep mother. In a similar fashion much of the scientific community is living in ignorance which is overshadowed by certain rigid rules which cannot handle the unknown or cannot even being to explore the unknown. All that is happening in the scientific community and as they term it is - Research. Something that has already been given and these folks with their phd's are researching it over and over again till by 'LUCK' they happen to accidently stumble on something new which they claim to have been given through by following the rules of scientific reasoning. I think its quite hypocritical. Fire was discovered by accident and so was pencilline the great antibiotic. Oh yes, ofcourse there are those who sit in their labs day in and day out experimenting with the same stuff over and over again till they find the best product which can be used by everyone in the world - This they call science, however this I call plain optimization which even a child in a secondary school would be able to accomplish provided the right impetus.
A phd sits in his lab day in and day out carrying out experimentation based on rules and foundations laid down by his superiors in the field. Now give this task to a 15 year kid with average intelligence and tell him to note down his findings and to keep at it till he discovers something new - a variation perhaps or even to optimize the existing design so that it can have economical benefits. Well there you go we have a 15 year old PhD. Funny as it may sound but this is the true case of science in the present world. Inspite of all the rockets and space technology and the bluff of being able to conquer outerspace. We are unable to prevent earthquakes or storms or hurricanes on earth. I suggest the scientific community to take a break from outer space and start concentrating on whats happening here on earth.
Well there are many things I can go about ranting in one post. However without divulging much off topic, I would want to suggest that the inventor always holds the key to its creation its not vice versa. Gary kasparov was able to beat deep blue inspite of the computer capable of thinking millions of moves ahead in a chess match. Reason being computers are not intelligent but humans are so we can always outpace them the question is how obsessed we are with the goal in mind. Simliarly it goes with the Intelligent designer He will always out run us in experimentation and be obsecure. The best path to seek Him would be through faith and open heartedness and an ability to see beyond science and experiments. Then we will learn to walk on a totally new road, a road where we will learn things that will not destroy us but rather helps us to be better humans. Things that will not teach us to fear death but will rather teach us to learn about death and realms beyond death. Un-like modern technology that has made mankind lazy and also given rise to many new forms of diseases and sicknesses. Whats the point of medication or research when science is creating an equal amount if not more of dieases by producing wastes and chemicals from manufacturing medicines.
