Hi Pim, I'm familiar with Elsberry's arguments. Would you say
"non-intelligent" might be a definition of "stupid"?

Bertvan:>> I don't have any opinion about who or what did the designing.

Pim:>Indeed, it might as well have been 'mother nature' then.

Bertvan: If want to call your "designer" some vague entity named "mother nature", it
sounds ok to me. Bertvan

Fine, so now we have natural laws being designers.
