RE: God? and stuff....
Alright, suppose I decide to look at this from a non-theistic perspective. It introduces a number of basic questions.
The body has a number of subsystems. If the logic behind evolution is that bodily subsystems develop on an as needed basis, then please explain the order in which these were developed, and why: mouth, throat, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. These subsystems are all interdependent. If one of these six is taken away, the subject doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t adequately digest five sixths of the necessary food, they digest no food and die (unless it's the anus that doesn't develope, then the subjects swells up and explodes). Therefore, without one another, the other systems are worthless. Does evolution allow for the development of worthless subsystems that miraculously fit together? It seems that all these subsystems must have all developed simultaneously. If so, who/what coordinated the construction? DoesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the parallel development of separate components imply a design? If there is design, what does that imply? What was the body doing for food while these systems were being developed? What was the body doing for air while respiratory system was being constructed? Ditto the circulatory system. Ditto the immune system. Et cetera.
Supposing I can get past all the problems involved in all the subsystems necessary for one person to live. How is it that the male/female reproductive organs are a perfect fit each other? Each gender is a completely separate living creature. How was the information passed between the two genders and an agreement established as to which gender would be responsible for itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s specific functions? Supposing the information was somehow passed between the two genders, are we to believe that both individual creatures Ã¢â‚¬Å“evolvedÃ¢â‚¬? at the same time? WouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t that Ã¢â‚¬Å“same timeÃ¢â‚¬? have to be one single lifetime? If it took more than one lifetime, the species would have perished.
