dhw: Of course your comments are not directed at me alone, and it is fair enough to keep emphasizing the unlikelihood of all the complexities arising by chance. However, it is important also to emphasize, as you mention in the ant post, that the extraordinary intelligence that enables organisms to devise different ways of surviving and of exploiting their particular environments may be their own, which might perhaps have been given to them by “a higher power”. Just as you believe your God gave humans the ability to design their own world in their own way, we cannot discount the possibility (theistic version) that he did the same for all organisms. One can believe in God without believing in your personal interpretation of God’s methods and intentions.

Yes, one can! For me it is an explanation of how I arrived at faith, by reviewing His works, and what they seem to mean.
