Keeping in Touch

I have a few reasons for posting today. It's been a while since I've posted, so I thought I'd just say hi. So, hi there.

I wondered if I'd be closed down if I didn't post at least once in a while, so that is my second reason for posting.

The third is that there is getting to be so much evidence for design in nature that I've wondered if there are people out there that are finally realizing there might be something to the design arguments. If there is anyone who would like a sincere discussion, I'd be happy to engage. I'm not talking about know-it-all put-downs from either side. You know what I mean.

A very interesting book review of Jonathan Well's new book, The Myth of Junk DNA, can be found at The Procrustean blog. I've never seen this blog before, but I followed links from Evolution News and Views. That and Darwin's God blog by Cornelius Hunter are my favorite places to keep up on the design theories. Since I've gotten a job, I haven't put as much time into the debate as I used to. Actually, I haven't been as busy in my job as I thought I would, but it could change at any time. So I've been working on my house and getting ready for summer company. But I digress.

I don't agree with the theology of what I understand as the official Intelligent Design line. They say the designer has intelligence, but that is as far as they want to go (even though it is inevitable that they be asked who the designer is). I am a Creationist and say that I believe God created life. I can't go to church in the morning and proclaim I believe God created all things seen and unseen and in the afternoon go to an Intelligent Design workshop and agree that the designer could be anybody.

I'm not on social networks and realize I'm doing an obscure blog. But, I'm someone to talk with about what might be on your mind about this whole evolution/design/creation debate that is going on in our country and Europe and probably the whole world to some extent. If you find me and are interested, drop me a line.
