Intelligent Design quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#1. Where you can see tribal behavior now is in this business about teaching evolution in a science class and intelligent design. It's the scientists themselves are behaving tribally. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Intelligent Design quotes by Kenneth R. Miller
#2. Most scientists who are religious look for God in what science does understand and has explained. So the way in which my view is different from the creationists or intelligent design proponents is that I find knowledge a compelling reason to believe in God. They find ignorance a compelling reason to believe in God. #Quote by Kenneth R. Miller
Intelligent Design quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#3. Allow intelligent design into science textbooks, lecture halls, and laboratories, and the cost to the frontier of scientific discovery - the frontier that drives the economies of the future - would be incalculable. I don't want students who could make the next major breakthrough in renewable energy sources or space travel to have been taught that anything they don't understand, and that nobody yet understands, is divinely constructed and therefore beyond their intellectual capacity. The day that happens, Americans will just sit in awe of what we don't understand, while we watch the rest of the world boldly go where no mortal has gone before. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Intelligent Design quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#4. The Intelligent Design movement starts with the recognition that "In the beginning was the Word," and "In the beginning God created." Establishing that point isn't enough, but it is absolutely essential to the rest of the gospel message. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
Intelligent Design quotes by Kenneth R. Miller
#5. 'Intelligent Design,' the relabeled, repackaged form of American creationism, has always had a problem. It just can't seem to produce any evidence. #Quote by Kenneth R. Miller
Intelligent Design quotes by Ellen Hopkins
#6. Why are we here? Is there, really, some intelligent design? Why do we cry for someone who leaves us, if there's some Grand Pearly Gate in the sky? Why worry about how we build our lives if the ultimate ending for all is death, a single breath away? #Quote by Ellen Hopkins
Intelligent Design quotes by Steven Weinberg
#7. Intelligent design ideology being promoted today is not science - it is rather the abdication of science. #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Intelligent Design quotes by Thomas Nagel
#8. I believe the defenders of intelligent design deserve our gratitude for challenging a scientific world view that owes some of the passion displayed by its adherents precisely to the fact that it is thought to liberate us from religion. That world view is ripe for displacement ... #Quote by Thomas Nagel
Intelligent Design quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#9. You might think that, by now, people would have become accustomed to the idea of natural catastrophes. We live on a planet that is still cooling and which has fissures and faults in its crust; this much is accepted even by those who think that the globe is only six thousand years old, as well as by those who believe that the earth was "designed" to be this way. Even in such a case, it is to be expected that earthquakes will occur and that, if they occur under the seabed, tidal waves will occur also. Yet two sorts of error are still absolutely commonplace. The first of these is the idiotic belief that seismic events are somehow "timed" to express the will of God. Thus, reasoning back from the effect, people will seriously attempt to guess what sin or which profanity led to the verdict of the tectonic plates. The second error, common even among humanists, is to borrow the same fallacy for satirical purposes and to employ it to disprove a benign deity. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Intelligent Design quotes by Kevin Phillips
#10. ....young people unskilled in mathematics, addled by credit cards, and weaned on so-called intelligent design...will somehow retool American science for another generation of world industrial leadership. #Quote by Kevin Phillips
Intelligent Design quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#11. There either is a god or there is not; there is a 'design' or not. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Intelligent Design quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
#12. Science is a philosophy of discovery. Intelligent design is a philosophy of ignorance. #Quote by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Wells
#13. Teaching students the evidence for and against Darwinism is not the same as teaching intelligent design. The U.S. Congress has officially endorsed teaching students 'the full range of scientific views' about Darwinian evolution. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Intelligent Design quotes by Douglas Adams
#14. This is rather as if you imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, 'This is an interesting world I find myself in - an interesting hole I find myself in - fits me rather neatly, doesn't it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!' This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, frantically hanging on to the notion that everything's going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise. I think this may be something we need to be on the watch out for. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Intelligent Design quotes by Isaac Newton
#15. Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who sets the planets in motion. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Intelligent Design quotes by Mark Haddon
#16. People believe in God because the world is very complicated and they think it is very unlikely that anything as complicated as a flying squirrel or the human eye or a brain could happen by chance. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Wells
#17. The secret of DNA's success is that it carries information like that of a computer program, but far more advanced. Since experience shows that intelligence is the only presently acting cause of information, we can infer that intelligence is the best explanation for the information in DNA. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Intelligent Design quotes by Anna Quindlen
#18. If God is watching us, as some believers suggest, as though we were a television show and God had a lot of free time, the deity would surely be bemused by how dumbed-down devotion has sometimes become in this so-called modern era. How might an omnipotent being with the long view of history respond to those who visit the traveling exhibit of a grilled-cheese sandwich , sold on eBay, that is said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary? It certainly argues against intelligent design , or at least intelligent design in humans . #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Intelligent Design quotes by James K. Galbraith
#19. Intelligent design cannot explain Darwinian evolution. Darwin's whole point is that variation and change are random and without higher purpose. We cannot imagine that God designed this disproof of His own existence. #Quote by James K. Galbraith
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Shermer
#20. Creationists have also changed their name ... to intelligent design theorists who study 'irreducible complexity' and the 'abrupt appearance' of life-yet more jargon for 'God did it.' ... Notice that they have no interest in replacing evolution with native American creation myths or including the Code of Hammarabi alongside the posting of the Ten Commandments in public schools. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#21. I believe God created the world for a purpose. The Designer of intelligent design is, ultimately, the Christian God. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#22. Intelligent design is a modest position theologically and philosophically. It attributes the complexity and diversity of life to intelligence, but does not identify that intelligence with the God of any religious faith or philosophical system. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#23. Even if the intelligent design of some structure has been established, it still is a separate question whether a wise, powerful, and beneficent God ought to have designed a complex, information-rich structure one way or another. For the sake of argument, let's grant that certain designed structures are not simply, as Gould put it, "odd" or "funny," but even cruel. What of it? Philosophical theology has abundant resources for dealing with the problem of evil, maintaining a God who is both omnipotent and benevolent in the face of evil. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#24. No person, collection of people, institution, government or organization of any kind can in any way promise to meet all of my needs for no person, collection of people, institution, government or organization possesses the array of resources necessary to do that. And so, I am left with the reality that either there is a God who can meet all of my needs, or I've been stranded in an existence that created me with needs that the existence itself cannot meet. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Intelligent Design quotes by George Lucas
#25. The way I define 'intelligent design' is that when people started out, we wanted to make sense of the world we lived in, so we created stories about how things worked. #Quote by George Lucas
Intelligent Design quotes by Gary Hamel
#26. I don't know whether the universe contains any evidence of intelligent design, but I can assure you that thousands of everyday products do not. #Quote by Gary Hamel
Intelligent Design quotes by Kenneth R. Miller
#27. The scientific argument advanced for intelligent design at the Dover trial, those arguments collapsed, scientifically and intellectually. #Quote by Kenneth R. Miller
Intelligent Design quotes by Robert J. White
#28. I am left with no choice but to acknowledge the existence of a superior Intellect, responsible for the design and development of the incredible brain-mind relationship ... I have to believe all this had an intelligent beginning. #Quote by Robert J. White
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#29. Intelligent design, unlike creationism, is a science in its own right and can stand on its own feet. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Tony Campolo
#30. While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can't figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn't prove there's a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature. #Quote by Tony Campolo
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Dowd
#31. I say the Intelligent Design-evolution debate misses the point. It trivializes God and it trivializes science. The universe is like the hand of God. The world is God's body. #Quote by Michael Dowd
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#32. The more statistically improbable a thing is, the less we can believe that it just happened by blind chance. Superficially, the obvious alternative to chance is an intelligent Designer. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by Paul Davies
#33. Many investigators feel uneasy stating in public that the origin of life is a mystery, even though behind closed doors they admit they are baffled. #Quote by Paul Davies
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#34. Natural selection is not only a parsimonious, plausible and elegant solution; it is the only workable alternative to chance that has ever been suggested. Intelligent design suffers from exactly the same objection as chance. It is simply not a plausible solution to the riddle of statistical improbability. And the higher the improbability, the more implausible intelligent design becomes. Seen clearly, intelligent design will turn out to be a redoubling of the problem. Once again, this is because the designer himself (/herself/itself) immediately raises the bigger problem of his own origin. Any entity capable of intelligently designing something as improbable as a Dutchman's Pipe (or a universe) would have to be even more improbable than a Dutchman's Pipe. Far from terminating the vicious regress, God aggravates it with a vengeance. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#35. Intelligent Design opens the whole possibility of us being created in the image of a benevolent God. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Jon Jones
#36. We have concluded that "Intelligent Design" is not science, and moreover that ID cannot uncouple itself from its creationist, and thus religious, antecedents. #Quote by Jon Jones
Intelligent Design quotes by David K. DeWolf
#37. Teachers seeking to 'teach the controversy' over Darwinian evolution in today's climate will likely be met with false warnings that it is unconstitutional to say anything negative about Darwinian evolution. Students who attempt to raise questions about Darwinism, or who try to elicit from the teacher an honest answer about the status of intelligent design theory will trigger administrators' concerns about whether they stand in Constitutional jeopardy. A chilling effect on open inquiry is being felt in several states already, including Ohio. South Carolina, and Pennsylvania. [District Court] Judge Jones's message is clear: give Darwin only praise, or else face the wrath of the judiciary. #Quote by David K. DeWolf
Intelligent Design quotes by Edward Kennedy
#38. My colleague Sen. Rick Santorum, Pennsylvania Republican, erroneously suggested that I support the teaching of intelligent design as an alternative to biological evolution. That simply is not true. ... Unlike biological evolution, intelligent design is not a genuine scientific theory and, therefore, has no place in the curriculum of our nation's public school science classes. #Quote by Edward Kennedy
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael J. Behe
#39. The conclusion of intelligent design flows naturally from the data itself - not from sacred books or sectarian beliefs. Inferring that biochemical systems were designed by an intelligent agent is a humdrum process that requires no new principles of logic or science. It comes simply from the hard work that biochemistry has done over the past forty years, combined with consideration of the way in which we reach conclusions of design every day. #Quote by Michael J. Behe
Intelligent Design quotes by Lawrence M. Krauss
#40. By no definition of any modern scientist is intelligent design science, and it's a waste of our students' time to subject them to it. #Quote by Lawrence M. Krauss
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#41. tried to impose 'intelligent design' creationism on the science curriculum of a local public school - a move of 'breathtaking inanity', to quote Judge Jones #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Denton
#42. Molecular biology has shown that even the simplest of all living systems on the earth today, bacterial cells, are exceedingly complex objects. Although the tiniest bacterial cells are incredibly small, weighing less than 10-12 gms, each is in effect a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up altogether of one hundred thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the nonliving world. #Quote by Michael Denton
Intelligent Design quotes by Isaac Newton
#43. This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Intelligent Design quotes by Isaac Newton
#44. How came the bodies of animals to be contrived with so much art, and for what ends were their several parts?
Was the eye contrived without skill in Opticks, and the ear without knowledge of sounds? ... and these things being rightly dispatch'd, does it not appear from phaenomena that there is a Being incorporeal, living, intelligent ... ? #Quote by Isaac Newton
Intelligent Design quotes by Stephen King
#45. If you say, Well, OK, I don't believe in God. There's no evidence of God, then you're missing the stars in the sky and you're missing the sunrises and sunsets and you're missing the fact that bees pollinate all these crops and keep us alive and the way that everything seems to work together. Everything is sort of built in a way that to me suggests intelligent design. #Quote by Stephen King
Intelligent Design quotes by Robert J. Sawyer
#46. It is either coincidence piled on top of coincidence," said Hollus, "or it is deliberate design. #Quote by Robert J. Sawyer
Intelligent Design quotes by Devon Sampson
#47. If god meant for people to talk into cellphones, he would've put our mouths on the side of our heads. #Quote by Devon Sampson
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Wells
#48. If Darwinists are opposed to mentioning scientific problems with their view, you would think they would be even more opposed to mentioning intelligent design. Yet Darwinists have been discussing ID in public school science classes for years ... Biology textbooks have been mentioning intelligent design since the late 1990s - but only to misrepresent and disparage it. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Intelligent Design quotes by Harun Yahya
#49. The followers of intelligent design should openly and clearly declare the existence of Allah as the Creator. #Quote by Harun Yahya
Intelligent Design quotes by Isaac Newton
#50. Blind metaphysical necessity, which is certainly the same always and every where, could produce no variety of things. All that diversity of natural things which we find suited to different times and places could arise from nothing but the ideas and will of a Being, necessarily existing. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Intelligent Design quotes by Steven Weinberg
#51. Even though their arguments did not invoke religion, I think we all know what's behind these arguments. They're trying to protect religious beliefs from contradiction by science. They used to do it by prohibiting teachers from teaching evolution at all; then they wanted to teach intelligent design as an alternative theory; now they want the supposed "weaknesses" in evolution pointed out. But it's all the same program - it's all an attempt to let religious ideas determine what is taught in science courses. #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Intelligent Design quotes by Brian Switek
#52. Their necks also beautifully demonstrate the jury-rigged nature of evolution while simultaneously refuting the notion that some divine Artificer intelligently designed organic life #Quote by Brian Switek
Intelligent Design quotes by Phillip E. Johnson
#53. This [the intelligent design movement] isn't really, and never has been, a debate about science, it's about religion and philosophy. #Quote by Phillip E. Johnson
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#54. Thus, in its relation to Christianity, intelligent design should be viewed as a ground-clearing operation that gets rid of the intellectual rubbish that for generations has kept Christianity from receiving serious consideration. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by E. Lee Spence
#55. First understand infinity then you will understand God and how evolution is intelligent design. #Quote by E. Lee Spence
Intelligent Design quotes by George Lucas
#56. Because we [people] have an intellect, part of what we do is try to understand the "intelligent design." Everything we don't know is "intelligent design." Everything we do know is science. #Quote by George Lucas
Intelligent Design quotes by Guy P. Harrison
#57. If a beautiful sunflower is somehow supposed to be evidence of the Christian god, then what is a parasitic worm that eats children's eyeballs evidence of? #Quote by Guy P. Harrison
Intelligent Design quotes by David Quammen
#58. Evolution as described by Charles Darwin is an scientific theory, abundantly reconfirmed, explaining physical phenomena by physical causes. Intelligent Design is a faith-based initiative in rhetorical argument. Should we teach I.D. in America's public schools? Yes, let's do - not as science, but alongside other spiritual beliefs, such as Islam, Zoroastrianism and the Hindu Idea that Earth rests on Chukwa, the giant turtle. #Quote by David Quammen
Intelligent Design quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#59. I simply can't look into the heavens on a crisp starry night and somehow bring myself to believe that the gaping expanse that engulfs the whole of me is the product of chance happenstance. And neither can I believe that the gaping expanse that rests within me is anything less. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Intelligent Design quotes by Lee Spetner
#60. To understand Darwin's work, you have to distinguish between his theory of descent and his theory of natural selection. THe full name of the first is the theory of descent with modification. Some call it the fact of evolution, and some call it the doctrine of evolution. #Quote by Lee Spetner
Intelligent Design quotes by George Will
#61. The problem with intelligent-design theory, is not that it is false but that it is not falsifiable. Not being susceptible to contradicting evidence, it is not a testable hypothesis. Hence it is not a scientific but a creedal tenet - a matter of faith, unsuited to a public school's science curriculum. #Quote by George Will
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#62. Give us detailed, testable, mechanistic accounts for the origin of life, the origin of the genetic code, the origin of ubiquitous bio macromolecules and assemblages like the ribosome, and the origin of molecular machines like the bacterial flagellum, and intelligent design will die a quick and painless death. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Tina Fey
#63. But I am a big believer in "Intelligent Design," and by that I mean I love IKEA! #Quote by Tina Fey
Intelligent Design quotes by Rick Perry
#64. I am a firm believer in intelligent design as a matter of faith and intellect, and I believe it should be presented in schools alongside the theories of evolution. #Quote by Rick Perry
Intelligent Design quotes by Cynthia Tucker
#65. No matter how much proponents of 'intelligent design' try to clothe their views in the apparel of science, it is what it is: religion. Whose intelligence? Whose design? #Quote by Cynthia Tucker
Intelligent Design quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#66. Lack of the power to discriminate is no less evident in the sciences, namely in the tenacious life of false and refuted theories. Once come into general credit, they continue to defy truth for centuries.

- On Various Subjects #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Intelligent Design quotes by Stephen C. Meyer
#67. The information contained in an English sentence or computer software does not derive from the chemistry of the ink or the physics of magnetism, but from a source extrinsic to physics and chemistry altogether. Indeed, in both cases, the message transcends the properties of the medium. The information in DNA also transcends the properties of its material medium. #Quote by Stephen C. Meyer
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#68. The scientific picture of the world championed since the Enlightenment is not just wrong but massively wrong. Indeed entire fields of inquiry, especially in the human sciences, will need to be rethought from the ground up in terms of intelligent design. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Katha Pollitt
#69. I'm anticlerical, not antireligion. If somebody believes there is God, I'm not interested in trying to persuade that person there is no intelligent design to the universe. Where I become interested and wake up is about the temporal power of religion, things like prayer in schools, or Catholic-secular hospital mergers. #Quote by Katha Pollitt
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#70. Such work would never be done if scientists were satisfied with a lazy default such as 'intelligent design theory' would encourage. Here is the message that an imaginary 'intelligent design theorist' might broadcast to scientists: 'If you don't understand how something works, never mind: just give up and say God did it. You don't know how the nerve impulse works? Good! You don't understand how memories are laid down in the brain? Excellent! Is photosynthesis a bafflingly complex process? Wonderful! Please don't go to work on the problem, just give up, and appeal to God. Dear scientist, don't work on your mysteries. Bring us your #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by David Hillis
#71. There is absolutely no scientific basis or evidence for 'intelligent design.' It is simply a religious assertion, and it has no place in a science course. #Quote by David Hillis
Intelligent Design quotes by Jeanne DuPrau
#72. What was the power that turned the worm into a moth? It was greater than any power the Builders had had, he was sure of that. The power that ran the city of Ember was feeble by comparison ... #Quote by Jeanne DuPrau
Intelligent Design quotes by Kinky Friedman
#73. How can you look at the Texas legislature and still believe in intelligent design? #Quote by Kinky Friedman
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Wells
#74. Ewww... intelligent design people! They're just buck-toothed, Bible-pushing nincompoops with community-college degrees who're trying to sell a gussied-up creationism to a cretinous public! No need to address their concerns or respond to their arguments. They are Not Science. They are poopy-heads. There. I just saved you the trouble of reading 90 percent of the responses to the ID position... This is how losers act just before they lose: arrogant, self-satisfied, too important to be bothered with substantive refutation, and disdainful of their own faults... The only remaining question is whether Darwinism will exit gracefully, or whether it will go down biting, screaming, censoring, and denouncing to the bitter end.
- Tech Central Station contributor Douglas Kern, 2005 #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Wells
#75. The controversy between Darwinism and intelligent design has the characteristics of major scientific revolutions in the past. Darwinists are losing power because they treat with contempt the very people on whom they depend the most: American taxpayers. The outcome of this scientific revolution will be decided by young people who have the courage to question dogmatism and follow the evidence wherever it leads. #Quote by Jonathan Wells
Intelligent Design quotes by Deepak Chopra
#76. It's time to rescue "intelligent design" from the politics of religion. There are too many riddles not yet answered by either biology or the Bible, and by asking them honestly, without foregone conclusions, science could take a huge leap forward. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Intelligent Design quotes by Sean J Halford
#77. In trying to explain life we have reduced it to a series of chemical reactions, whether it be the burning of glucose in mitochondria to create energy, or the folding of proteins to make bile, or pollen, or blood. Zoom out to where we perceive things, the titanic mathematics of it all is silent. We have twisted our thoughts and feelings into all sorts of psychological origami about whether these things are a result of evolution, intelligent design, or creation ex nihilo, and for all we know, our little planet is the only place that holds all of this wonder in a void that is too staggeringly huge to conceive. #Quote by Sean J Halford
Intelligent Design quotes by Harun Yahya
#78. I find the concept of intelligent design rather dishonest. One should openly stand up for the existence of Allah, should sincerely stand up for religion, for Islam. Or, if one is a Christian, one should honestly stand up for Christianity. #Quote by Harun Yahya
Intelligent Design quotes by Sheri S. Tepper
#79. [T]he scripture worshippers put the writings ahead of God. Instead of interpreting God's actions in nature, for example, they interpret nature in the light of the Scripture. Nature says the rock is billions of years old, but the book says different, so even though men wrote the book, and God made the rock and God gave us minds that have found ways to tell how old it is, we still choose to believe the Scripture. #Quote by Sheri S. Tepper
Intelligent Design quotes by Michele Bachmann
#80. There are hundreds and hundreds of scientists, many of them holding Nobel Prizes, who believe in intelligent design. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Intelligent Design quotes by Barry Bergdoll
#81. James Russell offers a timely and compelling blueprint for a realistic transformation of America's energy consumption by refusing to fall victim to conventional thinking. Accessible?pragmatic even?Russell's proposals speak to goals on the immediate horizon and underscore the role that intelligent design can play now in America. On a longer horizon, his analysis points to a range of issues about land use, transportation, and coordination of public and private investments to which the design professions have an enormous contribution to make. Here design and policy find common ground. #Quote by Barry Bergdoll
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Shermer
#82. Believers can have both religion and science as long as there is no attempt to make A non-A, to make reality unreal, to turn naturalism into supernaturalism. (125) #Quote by Michael Shermer
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael A. Cremo
#83. Dawkins's result can only be obtained because of the element of intelligent design embedded in the whole experiment. #Quote by Michael A. Cremo
Intelligent Design quotes by Raheel Farooq
#84. Intelligence seeks reasons behind things. Wisdom looks for things behind reasons. #Quote by Raheel Farooq
Intelligent Design quotes by Eric Idle
#85. Mere lack of evidence, of course, is no reason to denounce a theory. Look at intelligent design. The fact that it is bollocks hasn't stopped a good many people from believing in it. Darwinism itself is only supported by tons of evidence, which is a clear indication that Darwin didn't write his books himself. #Quote by Eric Idle
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Swift
#86. That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Intelligent Design quotes by George Gilder
#87. Intelligent design itself does not have any content. #Quote by George Gilder
Intelligent Design quotes by Paul Davies
#88. Scientists are slowly waking up to an inconvenient truth - the universe looks suspiciously like a fix. The issue concerns the very laws of nature themselves. For 40 years, physicists and cosmologists have been quietly collecting examples of all too convenient "coincidences" and special features in the underlying laws of the universe that seem to be necessary in order for life, and hence conscious beings, to exist. Change any one of them and the consequences would be lethal. Fred Hoyle, the distinguished cosmologist, once said it was as if "a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics".

To see the problem, imagine playing God with the cosmos. Before you is a designer machine that lets you tinker with the basics of physics. Twiddle this knob and you make all electrons a bit lighter, twiddle that one and you make gravity a bit stronger, and so on. It happens that you need to set thirtysomething knobs to fully describe the world about us. The crucial point is that some of those metaphorical knobs must be tuned very precisely, or the universe would be sterile.

Example: neutrons are just a tad heavier than protons. If it were the other way around, atoms couldn't exist, because all the protons in the universe would have decayed into neutrons shortly after the big bang. No protons, then no atomic nucleuses and no atoms. No atoms, no chemistry, no life. Like Baby Bear's porridge in the story of Goldilocks, the universe seems to be just right for life. #Quote by Paul Davies
Intelligent Design quotes by Ward Just
#89. What brings us anywhere? You take one turn instead of another, you meet one woman instead of another, you have good health or you don't, luck vies with misfortune, you break down and arrive at Bellevue in your bathrobe on a Saturday morning or - what was his father's antique phrase - you pulled up your socks and got on with things. Your heart adapted to changing times. Your body did. Or it did not and you passed your days in a muffler of regret. And that was what they called intelligent design. #Quote by Ward Just
Intelligent Design quotes by Lee Strobel
#90. Intelligent design is consistent with any faith system I can think of, because most faith systems believe that there is a creator. #Quote by Lee Strobel
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#91. Constrained optimization is the art of compromise between conflicting objectives. This is what design is all about. To find fault with biological design - as Stephen Jay Gould regularly does - because it misses some idealized optimum is therefore gratuitous. Not knowing the objectives of the designer, Gould is in no position to say whether the designer has proposed a faulty compromise among those objectives. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Donald L. Ewert
#92. Things that look like they were designed, probably were ... If intelligence is an operative component of the universe, a science that methodologically excludes its existence will be susceptible to being trapped in an endless chase for materialistic causes that do not exist ... Where there are sufficient grounds for inferring intelligent causation, based on evidence of "specified complexity," it should be considered as a component of scientific theories.
Inclusion of intelligent causation in the scientific equation is not novel and has not impeded the practice of science in the past, e.g. Newton and Kepler, in an age when science was not constrained by a philosophical materialism, and by many current scientists who have remained open to following the evidence where it leads. #Quote by Donald L. Ewert
Intelligent Design quotes by Eula Biss
#93. And when comfort is what we want, one of the most powerful tonics alternative medicine offers is the word 'natural.' This word implies a medicine untroubled by human limitations, contrived wholly by nature or God or perhaps intelligent design. What 'natural' has come to mean to us in the context of medicine is 'pure' and 'safe' and 'benign'. But the use of 'natural' as a synonym for 'good' is almost certainly a product of our profound alienation from the natural world. #Quote by Eula Biss
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#94. Whenever explaining an event, we must choose from three competing modes of explanation. These are regularity, chance, and design ... To attribute an event to design is to say that it cannot reasonably be referred to either regularity or chance. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#95. People believe the only alternative to randomness is intelligent design. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by Nancy Pearcey
#96. All of science is largely formalized common sense. #Quote by Nancy Pearcey
Intelligent Design quotes by Lee Strobel
#97. If it's true there's a beginning to the universe, as modern cosmologists now agree, then this implies a cause that transcends the universe. If the laws of physics are fine-tuned to permit life, as contemporary physicists are discovering, then perhaps there's a designer who fine-tuned them. If there's information in the cell, as molecular biology shows, then this suggests intelligent design. To get life going in the first place would have required biological information; the implications point beyond the material realm to a prior intelligent cause. -Stephen C Meyer, PHD #Quote by Lee Strobel

Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#99. You have to understand, in the current academic climate, Intelligent Design is like leprosy or heresy in times past. To be tagged as an ID supporter is to become an academic pariah, and this holds even at so-called Christian institutions that place a premium on respectability at the expense of truth and the offense of the Gospel. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Denton
#100. To grasp the reality of life as it has been revealed by molecular biology, we must magnify a cell a thousand million times until it is twenty kilometers in diameter and resembles a giant airship large enough to cover a great city like London or New York. What we would then see would be an object of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design. On the surface of the cell we would see millions of openings, like the port holes of a vast space ship, opening and closing to allow a continual stream of materials to flow in and out. If we were to enter one of these openings we would find ourselves in a world of supreme technology and bewildering complexity. #Quote by Michael Denton
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Behe
#101. The first point one has to get straight in discussions like this, is that ID is not the opposite of evolution. Rather, it is the opposite of Darwinism, which says life evolved by an utterly unguided, undirected mechanism. If god directed the process of evolution, or rigged the universe to produce complex life, then that is not Darwinism - it is intelligent design. #Quote by Michael Behe
Intelligent Design quotes by Francis Collins
#102. Proponents of intelligent design don't accept that some of the very complex nanomachines that we have inside ourselves could have come about solely on the basis of natural selection. #Quote by Francis Collins
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Shermer
#103. Intelligent Design is a remarkably uncreative theory that abandons the search for understanding at the very point where it is most needed. If Intelligent Design is really a science, then the burden is on its scientists to discover the mechanisms used by the Intelligent Designer. (80) #Quote by Michael Shermer
Intelligent Design quotes by Milton Berle
#104. If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands? #Quote by Milton Berle
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Shermer
#105. Evolution provides a scientific foundation for the core values shared by most Christians and conservatives, and by accepting–and embracing–the theory of evolution, Christians and conservatives strengthen their religion, their politics, and science itself. The conflict between science and religion is senseless. It is based on fears and misunderstandings rather than on facts and moral wisdom. (138) #Quote by Michael Shermer
Intelligent Design quotes by Jose Gonzalez
#106. I don't want to be too harsh, but there's very little evidence for 'intelligent design' or any sort of creator. #Quote by Jose Gonzalez
Intelligent Design quotes by F. C. S. Schiller
#107. It will not be possible to rule out the supposition that the process of evolution may be guided by an intelligent design. #Quote by F. C. S. Schiller
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Shermer
#108. Evolution is not a religious tenet, to which one swears allegiance or belief as a matter of faith.. It is a factual reality of the empirical world. Just as one would not say 'I believe in gravity, one should not proclaim 'I believe in evolution. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Intelligent Design quotes by Carlton D. Pearson
#109. Anytime that knowledge and a version of the truth are considered to be absolute, fundamentalism is the result, whether the arena is Christianity, Islam, Judaism, or any other religious faith, as well as atheism, conservative or liberal political views, even evolution or intelligent design. Anytime our minds are closed and there is no room for dissent, we are on a slippery slope towards stagnation. #Quote by Carlton D. Pearson
Intelligent Design quotes by Paul Beatty
#110. Most languages have a word for the day before yesterday. Anteayer in Spanish. Vorgestern in German. There is no word for it in English. It's a language that tries to keep the past simple and perfect, free of the subjunctive blurring of memory and mood. I take out a pen, tapping the end impatiently on a bar napkin as I try to think of a English word for "the day before yesterday."

I consider myself to be a political-linguistic refugee, come to Germany seeking asylum in a country where I don't have to hear people say "nonplussed" when they mean "nonchalant" or have to listen to a military spokesperson euphemistically refer to a helicopter's crashing into a mountainside as a "hard landing," and I can't begin to explain how liberating it is to live in a place where I can go through an autumn of Sundays without once having to hear someone say, "The only thing the prevent defense does is prevent you from winning." Listening to America these days is like listening to the fallen King Lear using his royal gibberish to turn field mice and shadows into real enemies. America is always composing empty phrases like "keeping it real," "intelligent design," "hip-hop generation," and "first responders" as a way to disguise the emptiness and the mundanity. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Intelligent Design quotes by Robert J. Sawyer
#111. No one disputes that seeming order can come out of the application of simple rules. But who wrote the rules? #Quote by Robert J. Sawyer
Intelligent Design quotes by Richard Dawkins
#112. [Asked by an audience member at a public Q&A session] Considering that atheism cannot possibly have any sense of 'absolute morality', would it not then be an irrational leap of faith – which atheists themselves so harshly condemn – for an atheist to decide between right and wrong?
[Dawkins] Absolute morality...the absolute morality that a religious person might profess would include, what, stoning people for adultery? Death for apostasy? [...] These are all things which are religiously-based absolute moralities. I don't think I want an absolute morality; I think I want a morality that is thought out, reasoned, argued, discussed, and based on – you could almost say intelligent design. [...]
If you actually look at the moralities that are accepted among modern people – among 21st century people – we don't believe in slavery anymore; we believe in equality of women; we believe in being gentle; we believe in being kind to animals...these are all things which are entirely recent. They have very little basis in Biblical or Koranic scripture. They are things that have developed over historical time; through a consensus of reasoning, sober discussion, argument, legal theory, political and moral philosophy. These do not come from religion. To the extent that you can find the 'good bits' in religious scriptures, you have to cherry-pick. You search your way through the Bible or the Koran, and you find the occasional verse that is an acceptable profession of morality – and #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Intelligent Design quotes by Friedrich A. Hayek
#113. This entails certain corollaries on which true individualism once more stands in sharp opposition to the false individualism of the rationalistic type. The first is that the deliberately organized state on the one side, and the individual on the other, far from being regarded as the only realities, which all the intermediate formations and associations are to be deliberately suppressed, as was the aim of the French Revolution, the noncompulsory conventions of social intercourse are considered as essential factors in preserving the orderly working in human society. The second is that the individual, in participating in the social processes, must be ready and willing to adjust himself to changes and to submit to conventions which are not the result of intelligent design, whose justification in the particular instance may be recognizable, and which to him will often appear unintelligible and irrational. I need not say much on the first point. That true individualism affirms the value of the family and all the common efforts of the small community and group, that it believes in local autonomy and voluntary associations, and that indeed its case rests largely on the contention that much for which the coercive action of the state is usually invoked can be done better by voluntary collaboration need not be stressed further. There can be no greater contrast to this than the false individualism which wants to dissolve all these smaller groups into atoms which have no cohesion other th #Quote by Friedrich A. Hayek
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#114. There is an immediate payoff to intelligent design: it destroys the atheistic legacy of Darwinian evolution. Intelligent design makes it impossible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#115. To establish evolutionary interrelatedness invariably requires exhibiting similarities between organisms. Within Darwinism, there's only one way to connect such similarities, and that's through descent with modification driven by the Darwinian mechanism. But within a design-theoretic framework, this possibility, though not precluded, is also not the only game in town. It's possible for descent with modification instead to be driven by telic processes inherent in nature (and thus by a form of design). Alternatively, it's possible that the similarities are not due to descent at all but result from a similarity of conception, just as designed objects like your TV, radio, and computer share common components because designers frequently recycle ideas and parts. Teasing apart the effects of intelligent and natural causation is one of the key questions confronting a design-theoretic research program. Unlike Darwinism, therefore, intelligent design has no immediate and easy answer to the question of common descent.

Darwinists necessarily see this as a bad thing and as a regression to ignorance. From the design theorists' perspective, however, frank admissions of ignorance are much to be preferred to overconfident claims to knowledge that in the end cannot be adequately justified. Despite advertisements to the contrary, science is not a juggernaut that relentlessly pushes back the frontiers of knowledge. Rather, science is an interconnected web of theoretical and factual c #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by James P. Hogan
#116. The fact that some religious fanatics might support a theory doesn't invalidate it, anymore than the concurrence of UFO abduction cults invalidates the notion of extra-terrestrial life. #Quote by James P. Hogan
Intelligent Design quotes by John Marburger
#117. Evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology. Intelligent design is not a scientific concept. #Quote by John Marburger
Intelligent Design quotes by Nicole Williams
#118. And specimens like this confirmed there had been some kind of divine rule in the universe because no natural selection process was up to the task of creating something like him. This was some god's, somewhere's, handiwork. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Intelligent Design quotes by William A. Dembski
#119. The very comprehensibility of the world points to an intelligence behind the world. Indeed, science would be impossible if our intelligence were not adapted to the intelligibility of the world. The match between our intelligence and the intelligibility of the world is no accident. Nor can it properly be attributed to natural selection, which places a premium on survival and reproduction and has no stake in truth or conscious thought. Indeed, meat-puppet robots are just fine as the output of a Darwinian evolutionary process. #Quote by William A. Dembski
Intelligent Design quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#120. Intelligent design becomes the basic principle of life? Homo sapiens is replaced by superhumans? #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael Denton
#121. The complexity of the simplest known type of cell is so great that it is impossible to accept that such an object could have been thrown together suddenly by some kind of freakish, vastly improbable, event. Such an occurrence would be indistinguishable from a miracle. #Quote by Michael Denton
Intelligent Design quotes by Michael J. Behe
#122. In the abstract, it might be tempting to imagine that irreducible complexity simply requires multiple simultaneous mutations - that evolution might be far chancier than we thought, but still possible. Such an appeal to brute luck can never be refuted ... Luck is metaphysical speculation; scientific explanations invoke causes. #Quote by Michael J. Behe
Intelligent Design quotes by Chet Raymo
#123. The new advocates of ID [Intelligent Design] ask that their ideas be judged by scientific, not religious, criteria. OK, let's see how well ID stacks up as a scientific alternative to Darwinism. To gauge how well ID is doing as a platform for scientific research, I logged into the best database of the biological literature. A search for keyword 'evolution' yielded 24,000 hits in the last decade. A search for 'intelligent design' yielded not a single piece of research. Evolution by natural selection remains the basis of every successful biological research program. #Quote by Chet Raymo
Intelligent Design quotes by Daniel Walker Howe
#124. Stewart Davenport conscientiously and insightfully re-creates the world of the nineteenth-century political economists, who taught that the principles of international trade manifested, like the laws of biology and physics, the intelligent design of a Divine Creator. #Quote by Daniel Walker Howe
Intelligent Design quotes by Leila Janah
#125. Often, we think that things are the way they are because of intelligent design - because somebody super-smart, or some group of academics, came up with the best system ever to do XYZ. Actually, things are often the way they are because of an accident of history. #Quote by Leila Janah
Intelligent Design quotes by Bruce Alberts
#126. In evolution, as in all areas of science, our knowledge is incomplete. But the entire success of the scientific enterprise has depended on an insistence that these gaps be filled by natural explanations, logically derived from confirmable evidence. Because "intelligent design" theories are based on supernatural explanations, they can have nothing to do with science. #Quote by Bruce Alberts
Intelligent Design quotes by Robert T. Pennock
#127. Intelligent design theorists have learned a few lessons from the failures of their predecessors and have devised a more sophisticated strategy to compete head on with evolution. One of the main things they [intelligent design creationists] have learned is what not to say.
A major element of their strategy is to advance a form of creation that not only omits any explicit mention of Genesis but is also usually vague, if not mute, about any of the specific claims about the nature of Creation, the separate ancestry of humans and apes, the explanation of the earth's geology by catastrophic global flood, or the age of the earth - items that readily identified young-earth creationism as a thinly disguised biblical literalism. #Quote by Robert T. Pennock
Intelligent Design quotes by Paul Davies
#128. One of the confusions surrounding the Intelligent Design movement's propaganda is a failure to distinguish between the fact of evolution and the mechanism of evolution. #Quote by Paul Davies
Intelligent Design quotes by Irven Devore
#129. I personally cannot discern a shred of evidence for '[intelligent] design.' If 97% of all creatures have gone extinct, some plan isn't working very well! #Quote by Irven Devore
Intelligent Design quotes by Alexander Solschenizyn
#130. Oh, "what an intelligent, farsighted humane administration from top to bottom," as Supreme Court Judge Leibowitz of New York State wrote in Life magazine, after having visited Gulag. "In serving out his term of punishment the prisoner retains a feeling of dignity." That is what he comprehended and saw.

Oh, fortunate New York State, to have such a perspicacious jackass for a judge!

And oh, you well-fed, devil-may-care, nearsighted, irresponsible foreigners with your notebooks and your ball-point pens - beginning with those correspondents who back in Kem asked the zeks questions in the presence of the camp chiefs - how much you have harmed us in your vain passion to shine with understanding in areas where you did not grasp a lousy thing! #Quote by Alexander Solschenizyn
Intelligent Design quotes by Jez Humble
#131. Having empathy for customers and users is a powerful force. When we empathize, we enhance our ability to receive and process information.77 Empathy in design requires deliberate practice. We must design experiments and interaction opportunities to connect with our customers and users in meaningful ways and challenge our assumptions, preconceptions, and prejudices. We need to assume the role of an interested inquirer, trying to understand the challenges they experience. #Quote by Jez Humble
Intelligent Design quotes by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
#132. Whenever the cause of the people is entrusted to professors, it is lost. #Quote by Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Intelligent Design quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#133. Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul and a trait of a true coward. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for - YOU. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Intelligent Design quotes by Jason Reitman
#134. Can you design a Rorschach test that's going to make everyone feel something every time - and that looks like a Rorschach test? It's easy to show a picture of a kitten or a car accident. The question is, how abstract can you get and still get the audience to feel something when they don't know what's happening to them? #Quote by Jason Reitman
Intelligent Design quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#135. The Far East and the Islamic world produced minds as intelligent and curious as those of Europe. However, between 1500 and 1950 they did not produce anything that comes even close to Newtonian physics or Darwinian biology. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Intelligent Design quotes by Aristotle.
#136. Tragedy is an imitation not only of a complete action, but of events inspiring fear and pity. Such an effect is best produced when the events come on us by surprise; and the effect is heightened when, at the same time, they follow as cause and effect. The tragic wonder will then be great than if they happened of themselves or by accident; for even coincidences are most striking when they have an air of design. #Quote by Aristotle.
Intelligent Design quotes by Rachel Roy
#137. Design the life you want to live. #Quote by Rachel Roy
Intelligent Design quotes by Jared Diamond
#138. Bird taxonomy is a difficult field because of the severe anatomical constraints imposed by flight. There are only so many ways to design a bird capable, say, of catching insects in mid-air, with the result that birds of similar habitats tend to have very similar anatomies, whatever their ancestry. For example, American vultures look and behave much like Old World vultures, but biologists have come to realize that the former are related to storks, the latter to hawks, and that their resemblances result from their common lifestyle. #Quote by Jared Diamond
Intelligent Design quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#139. The audience is a very curious animal. It is shrewd rather than intelligent. Its mental capacity is less than that of its most intellectual members. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Intelligent Design quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#140. There is, indeed, nothing more vexing than to be, for example, rich, of good family, of decent appearance, fairly well educated, not stupid, rather good-hearted even, and at the same time to possess no talent, no special quality, no eccentricity even, not a single idea of one's own, to be precisely "like everyone else."
One is rich, but not so rich as Rothschild; of a good family, but one which has never distinguished itself in any way; of decent appearance, but an appearance expressive of very little; well educated, but without knowing what to do with that education; one is intelligent, but without one's own ideas; one is good-hearted, but without greatness of soul, and so on and so forth. There are a great number of such people in the world, far more than it appears. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Intelligent Design quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#141. The fears you do not face become your walls. Most people in business, and in their personal lives, design everything so they can avoid doing what makes them feel uncomfortable. Yet any good business person knows we are not only paid to work, but also we are paid to be scared. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Intelligent Design quotes by Judi Dench
#142. I started off as a theatre designer, and by some extraordinary circumstance I saw something in Stratford-upon-Avon, and realized that that's the kind of design I want, but also that that's the kind of designer I'll never be. #Quote by Judi Dench
Intelligent Design quotes by Michelangelo

Intelligent Design quotes by Amish Tripathi
#145. Every emotion in the universe exists for a purpose; nothing is superfluous in nature's design. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Intelligent Design quotes by Harold Davis
#146. Most sites need to prevent breadth - many many pages that are organized cohesively. A site that presents a single webpage is unlikely to present sufficient depth of content to justify extensive SEO.
The SCO trick is to draw traffic with desirable content, and to 'seduce' the traffic into portions of the site that may not directly have anything to do with the content - this is the ultimate goal of the SEO campaign. #Quote by Harold Davis
Intelligent Design quotes by B.F. Skinner
#147. I did not direct my life. I didn't design it. I never made decisions. Things always came up and made them for me. That's what life is. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Intelligent Design quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#148. The book originated in the suggestion of a publisher; as many more good books have done than the arrogance of the man of letters is commonly inclined to admit. Very much is said in our time about Apollo and Admetus, and the impossibility of asking genius to work within prescribed limits or assist an alien design. But after all, as a matter of fact, some of the greatest geniuses have done it, from Shakespeare botching up bad comedies and dramatising bad novels down to Dickens writing a masterpiece as the mere framework for a Mr. Seymour's sketches. Nor is the true explanation irrelevant to the spirit and power of Dickens. Very delicate, slender, and bizarre talents are indeed incapable of being used for an outside purpose, whether of public good or of private gain. But about very great and rich talent there goes a certain disdainful generosity which can turn its hand to anything. Minor poets cannot write to order; but very great poets can write to order. The larger the man's mind, the wider his scope of vision, the more likely it will be that anything suggested to him will seem significant and promising; the more he has a grasp of everything the more ready he will be to write anything. It is very hard (if that is the question) to throw a brick at a man and ask him to write an epic; but the more he is a great man the more able he will be to write about the brick. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Intelligent Design quotes by Lilian Jackson Braun
#149. The more you talk to cats ... the smarter they become. An occasional 'nice kitty' will have no measurable effect; intelligent conversation is required. #Quote by Lilian Jackson Braun
Intelligent Design quotes by Philip Treacy
#150. I'm representative of 21st century Irish design, so I promote Irishness all over the world wherever I go. #Quote by Philip Treacy
Intelligent Design quotes by Hillman Curtis
#151. You may include things you believe to be crucial in a design, but those elements are often only crucial to you. #Quote by Hillman Curtis
Intelligent Design quotes by Leviak B. Kelly
#152. A sapient cat looking at humanity's salad garden buffet designed by God would not be seen as so much a paradise if the divine is seen as giving this to intelligent cats. It would be seen as quite the opposite. Since cats use plants as emetics and also lack the ability to taste sweet, Eden would be a rather hellish place. It would be a place where God might send a cat to punish the feline. This is because fruits and vegetation to eat would be a place to eat bland foods that cause one to vomit. It would hardly be a beneficial place for cats if this was a place of divine refuge where death did not exist. Again the immortal state would place cats in a rather hellish environment. #Quote by Leviak B. Kelly
Intelligent Design quotes by Karen Armstrong
#153. even the presidents of Harvard and Yale saw the War of Independence as part of God's design for the overthrow of Catholicism. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Intelligent Design quotes by Emanuel Swedenborg
#154. Justice is following the divine design in all that one does, and bringing back into the divine design things that have fallen away from that design. Justice is the divine design itself. #Quote by Emanuel Swedenborg
Intelligent Design quotes by Craig Venter
#155. Genome design is going to be a key part of the future. That's why we need fast, cheap, accurate DNA synthesis, so you can make a lot of iterations of something and test them. #Quote by Craig Venter
Intelligent Design quotes by Jacques Monod
#156. When one ponders on the tremendous journey of evolution over the past three billion years or so, the prodigious wealth of structures it has engendered, and the extraordinarily effective teleonomic performances of living beings from bacteria to man, one may well find oneself beginning to doubt again whether all this could conceivably be the product of an enormous lottery presided over by natural selection, blindly picking the rare winners from among numbers drawn at random. [Nevertheless,] a detailed review of the accumulated modern evidence [shows] that this conception alone is compatible with the facts. #Quote by Jacques Monod
Intelligent Design quotes by Diane Von Furstenberg
#157. The girls who were unanimously considered beautiful often rested on their beauty alone. I felt I had to do things, to be intelligent and develop a personality in order to be seen as attractive. By the time I realized maybe I wasn't plain and might even possibly be pretty, I had already trained myself to be a little more interesting and informed. #Quote by Diane Von Furstenberg
Intelligent Design quotes by Calvin Klein
#158. People who run a ready-to-wear company are businessmen rather than production or design people. #Quote by Calvin Klein

Intelligent Design quotes by Cillian Murphy
#160. I think audiences are a lot more intelligent than what we give them credit for and understand that an actor is playing a role and that doesn't mean he can't play different types of roles. #Quote by Cillian Murphy

#161. When I design something, I think of it as a gift to somebody else. #Quote by Eva Zeisel
Intelligent Design quotes by James Dyson
#162. Having a good idea is one thing, but persuading other people to buy it is quite another. Good inventors are polymaths: they think with their hands and their brains. They're experts in design, engineering and business. #Quote by James Dyson
Intelligent Design quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#163. Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God. #Quote by Joseph Smith Jr.
Intelligent Design quotes by Amit Ray

Intelligent Design quotes by Jane McGonigal
#168. I want gaming to be something that everybody does, because they understand that games can be a real solution to problems and a real source of happiness. I want games to be something everybody learns how to design and develop, because they understand that games are a real platform for change and getting things done. And I want families, schools, companies, industries, cities, countries, and the whole world to come together to play them, because we're finally making games that tackle real dilemmas and improve real lives. #Quote by Jane McGonigal
Intelligent Design quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#169. Minimalism seems closest to the sophisticated storytelling of movies. Movies have really educated contemporary audiences to be the most intelligent, sophisticated audiences in history. We don't any longer need to have the relationship between one scene and the next explained. We will figure it out ourselves. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Intelligent Design quotes by Siddhartha Mukherjee

Intelligent Design quotes by Seth Godin
#173. When we think of design, we usually imagine things that are chosen because they are designed. Vases or comic books or architecture ... It turns out, though, that most of what we make or design is actually aimed at a public that is there for something else. The design is important, but the design is not the point. Call it "public design" ... Public design is for individuals who have to fill out our tax form, interact with our website or check into our hotel room despite the way it's designed, not because of it. #Quote by Seth Godin
Intelligent Design quotes by Robert C. Solomon
#174. Whether one sees the world as God's creation or as a secular mystery that science is on the way to figuring out, there is no denying the beauty and majesty of everything from mountain ranges, deserts, and rain forests to the exquisite details in the design of an ordinary mosquito. #Quote by Robert C. Solomon
Intelligent Design quotes by Jonathan Ive
#175. Apple's Industrial Design team is harder to get into than the Illuminati, and part of the reason is because no one leaves. In the last 15 years, not one of the 18 designers has ditched Apple for greener pastures. #Quote by Jonathan Ive
Intelligent Design quotes by Martin Amis
#176. I had my yob periods. Nothing violent but certainly loutish. I think it's frustrated intelligence. Imagine that if you were really intelligent and everyone treated you as though you were stupid and no one tried to teach you anything
the sort of deep subliminal rage that would get going in you. But then once it gets going, you make a strength out of what you know is your weakness, which is that you are undeveloped. #Quote by Martin Amis
Intelligent Design quotes by David McCandless
#177. Information design has been around since the 1970s. Pioneers like Yale University design guru Edward Tufte and design agency Pentagram have long known and used its power. But now with the rise of the Internet, it's having something of a second birth. #Quote by David McCandless
Intelligent Design quotes by Jacque Fresco
#178. The question is not whether there is intelligent life out there, the question is, whether there is intelligent life down here. As long as you have war, police, prisons, crime, you are in the early stages of civilization. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
