I am denying that Coral Reef contains intelligent life? Didn't I just provide a definition of intelligent life? Nothing within the Coral Reef is capable of learning or understanding things thus per that definition it is not intelligent life.
I provided you the example of the Coral Reef! A Coral Reef is an example of something produced via non intelligence that has design and functionality.
That’s because all machines are built by humans; and humans are intelligent beings.
How do you know complexity of design requires an intelligent builder? If you knew of any evidence to support this claim, I’m sure you would have provided it by now; thus far you’ve provided nothing. According to science, everything within the Universe resulted from the singularity that expanded during what is known as the Big Bang; That’s it! They don’t claim an intelligence was involved; there is not a shred of scientific evidence to support this claim, yet you present it as not only truth, but an obvious truth; and claim I’m being less than truthful with myself because I refuse to take your word for it.Philip wrote: ↑Fri Apr 05, 2019 6:10 pmYet you know of cellular design and complexity far beyond what it took for even a huge team of scientists 10 years to build, and you deny it required intelligence.
No offense meant, but wow, Ken - you are holding one to your denial with every ounce of your determination and strength, it's just so obvious. So much so that I don't believe you truly believe such complexity of design doesn't require an intelligent builder - no matter how much you proclaim it!
From the beginning I was clear about my ignorance concerning this subject, (even though I did provide links and outside sources to support my ideas) yet you insist on claiming knowledge about this that not even our greatest scientists have answers for. I feel it is better to admit when you don’t know than to present false information as truth.
I believe it was our friend Kurieuo who had a sign-off saying;
The greatest threat to knowledge is not ignorance, but the illusion of knowledge.
I couldn’t agree more.
