Video of Unsettling Evolution in Action (Evolution)

dhw: I appreciate that you are trying to find a justification for your beliefs, but since there are experts in the field who maintain that bacteria are intelligent, sentient, cognitive beings, I hope you will understand why I am not convinced by your arguments. That life is a miracle is not in dispute, and that something worked is not in dispute either. The discussion on HOW it worked is the point at issue, and the intelligence of bacteria does not preclude the existence of a God who gave it to them in the first place.

DAVID: I agree with you. God gave it to them or they evolved using mechanisms God gave them. Intelligence or on-board intelligent instructions look exactly the same from the outside of a cell. Life's miracle is either chance or design, no more.

I wish you did agree with me that the evolutionary process may be directed by cellular intelligence (the "it" you refer to), but your posts vary from day to day. One moment you write: “I couldn't agree more that God may have given organisms the ability to 'work it out for themselves'", and the next you absolutely exclude autonomy and insist that God either preprogrammed or dabbled every innovation and natural wonder. As you well know, this has nothing whatsoever to do with life's miracle being either chance v. design, since my hypothesis does not preclude the possibility that cellular intelligence was designed by a God.
