In the course of your reply to Terry Gray you suggest:
Think about it this way. Suppose you find an
arrowhead in a field, and tell me that this
object displays intelligent design. No, I say,
arrowheads occur naturally, entirely without
design, in random piles of rock.
The arrowhead in your example displays not only the fact that it was
"intelligently designed" (where the contemporary meaning of 'designed' is,
'thoughtfully conceptualized for the accomplishment of a purpose'). Your
arrowhead was also forcibly SHAPED/FORMED by an agent external to the rocky
material. Once again you have made it clear that the term "intelligently
designed" is little more than a marketing gimmick that sounds better than
"coercively shaped or assembled."
