Re: Is there evidence of design?

We can readily identify design by humans in art and artifacts, as Phil Johnson
is fond of pointing out. But does that enable us to detect design by an entity
(God) whose ways are higher than ours? While I believe that God has designed
the laws of physics and chemistry, and designs the environment to provide
direction to common descent, I regard my belief as philosophical, not
scientific. That's because it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible,
to establish rigorously the existence of design.
