I was thinking a bit today about Intelligent Design. I don’t know why, don’t ask me. But I’m going to shrug off the mantle of “atheist” for the moment, because I’m really more of an “apatheist”, and argue against Intelligent Design from a religious perspective. Because, you see, the ID people want us all to believe that we humans are the result of a deliberate design by an intelligent god-like being (more specifically, in 99.99% of the cases, the Christian god). What these people – who cut their hair, shave portions of their anatomy, use anti-wrinkle cream, and wear shoes and clothing – fail to realize is that they are arguing against ID every time they artificially modify their bodies.
“God, you designed me a crappy foot, and made me too short, so I’m gonna wear high-heel shoes.”
“God, I don’t like the hair on my chin, and I’m unhappy about the lack of hair on my head, so I’m gonna shave and use Rogaine.”
“God, why did you even make it possible for anybody to have gay sex?”
For all that they claim to believe in Intelligent Design, they spend an awful lot of time insulting their Designer by trying to improve upon it. Not only do they try to improve upon their own design, but they shun those who don’t. Anybody who refuses to cut their hair, shave, use deodorant, or wear clothes is looked down upon, or even cast out from society. Even (especially?) societies that claim to worship the Designer.
Don’t just talk the talk; walk the walk. If you think divine hands designed our species, then revel in the glory that is your natural self! Ramen.
