Yes, all things are created, all life has a designer. To think the eye came about by chance is truly insane. Even a simple paperclip was designed and then created by a creative mind. How much more, the eye and it's connection to the brain, allowing us to see all the other things God has created for our marvelling gratitude.
“You are worthy, Jehovah, even our God, to receive the glory and the honor and the power, because you created all things, and because of your will they existed and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)
A paperclip isn't alive. It doesn't reproduce. It doesn't have alleles. It isn't subject to selective forces.
Except paperclips aren't alive. That's the fundamental difference.
And around the world, optometrists, opthamologists, and the rest of the eye doctors yawn.
Now, don't you feel foolish for using an illustration of a paperclip to teach an obvious truth?
In response, Maprog felt the need to tell you that a paperclip is not alive! Isn't he brilliant?
@blacktooth: rather than resort to snarky remarks, why don't you try to understand the implication of what I'm saying. When you use the analogy of an inamiate object to support an intelligent designer, you are forgetting that the inanimate object isn't alive, and is; therefore, not subject to the processes of life, the most important of which is reproduction, and the genetic drift that occurs as a result.
You are not as smart as you think you are, and we are not as dumb as you think we are.
Your efforts to talk-down to me is not working.
Lets keep this simple with some questions:
Your hands - do we see design there or did they come about by chance mutations?
We can ask the same questions about your eyes, your ears and the mechanism that sends sound waves to your brain to process those sounds?
What about your brain itself, is there design there or did it come to be by chance mutations?
What about a horse, was it designed? What about the atom, is there design there?
Why do we have the ability to speak a language? How does that work considering the interaction of the mouth, teeth, tongue, lungs, brain? Can you explain all this and a million other examples we can consider?
@Blacktooth: I see that your debate tactic is to attempt to overwhelm your opponent by expecting them to answer dozens of questions. The flaw with all of your examples is the assumption that each of these organs and systems have always existed in their current form. When you look into biology, you find many different variations of each of these mechamisms, and of varying coplexity. You reference the hand. The primate hand is very advanced, and reflects the use of tools and fine motor skills exhibited by them. In biology, form reflects function. The evolution of the primate hand is actually a fascinating topic. I suggest you research it.
As to the other questions you broadsided me with: I suggest you look to experts in those respective topics. To damand that I have all of the answers, and then claim some sort of victory because I don't is disingenuous. The thing about science is that scientists are specialists. One may study primate hand evolution, another might be a neuroscientist who focuses on the development of speech, or an area of the brain, such as Broca's or Wernicki's area. Another might be an expert on the preception of hearing. The idea is that they all pool their knowledge into a knowledge base.
MAPROG, I really never get why people make this argument. The day we invent the paperclip that reproduces itself is the day our technology because VERY intelligently designed. Really bad argument. ;)
And maybe the day the paperclip robots hook us all up to the Matrix... but that's neither here nor there.
Typocorrect: is the day our technology becomes

Satan’s master plan = mass depopulation.
Oh, Jesus! Save these babies and come take us home from this wretched world!

Exactly! This catholic priest worries me. He even said he believes in evolution.. sad..

This catholic priest said he believes in evolution… How sad.

@Marine. So you want conservatives should sugar coat everything just so we get the vote? Thats for sissies that cant take the truth. For people that want to do what they want to do and no one dare tell them otherwise. Pathetic.
@therapturecomes. A true Christian should have voted for Romney JUST because he was slightly more against abortion and gay marriage than obama. That is enough reason to vote for a president nowadays! There never was a real Christian president nominee.. So don’t even use that excuse to vote for obama or not vote at all!!

@Whitefang.. You are very right in what you say. People who believe that God will not do again what He did with Sodom and Gomorah don’t really know God at all. He was Holy, is Holy, and will be Holy. What was vile to Him will always be vile to Him.

@ashestoashes. I totally agree!!! I thought I was the only one who thought that their goal was mass depopulation.. I am soo sick of being taught by my university teachers that the world is much too populated and we need to do something about it.. Blah blah!! Everyone is starting to accept abortion, gay marriage. I am convinced that satan’s master plan is to stop the birth of humans. God’s most treasured creation.. We are in the image of God, for petes sake!! People love their dogs,cats, monkey, more than other humans nowadays.. Whats going on?!!

Its sad how compromising people have become.. They eat whatever flies.. This is what happens when parents are supposed to be only their children’s friends, and believe it is magic to strictly discipline a child because you will change his natural personality.. So much rubbish!!!!!

Isaiah 34:8-10 For it is the day of the Lord’s punishment, when he gives payment for the wrongs done to Zion.
And its streams will be turned into boiling oil, and its dust into burning stone, and all the land will be on fire.
It will not be put out day or night; its smoke will go up for ever: it will be waste from generation to generation; no one will go through it for ever.

Israel always in my prayers.. Also, I am a frequent visitor and a fan of IDF on facebook and youtube. Its great that they keep us informed on whats happening. God bless Israel!!

Pray for Israel.. Add Israel Defense Forces on facebook and share what the media will not.

But, but, but… O saved those arabs attacking the embassy.. that must count for something, right?? :/
October 28, 2012 at 8:13pm
Here we go again.. America you are being punished for not standing with Israel. I wonder when the world will learn their lesson that if you are not with Israel, you are on God’s punishment list. God forgive us, and give us wisdom and protection. In Jesus name. Amen.

Wow… Moderationisbest. You are one of the most foolish people on these boards. I pray God opens your eyes so you can see your sin and repent.

I am sorry to disappoint you.. but even the demons believe that Jesus is the son of God and know what He did for us.. that does not mean demons are true Christians. Stop playing with the Bible and changing it to fit your own theories.
