Believing in an Intelligent Designer is just a leap of blind faith
Which is the greater leap of faith? To believe there is a creator or to believe that all the information and intelligence that resulted in life on earth and that of human civilization, culture, art and thought could have come from simple unguided chemical combinations. But that's not the question. Is it blind faith to believe in a creator? I would have to say, yes, if there were no evidence. But there is evidence. There is prophecy, history, science and personal experience. So it's not blind faith to believe in a creator, there is too much evidence to rationally deny it. The only thing you can do is choose to believe that all the evidence is contrived or misinterpreted. But you can't deny its there.
On the other hand, evolution is built on myriads of non-verifiable events. From the initial conditions in which chemical life formed, where the first event happened, when it happened, how the first replicating molecules came about, how they began to code for organelles and cell structures, how the first cells formed, how the first eukaryote formed, the first nerve cells, the first amniotic egg, the first live birth, the first eyes, the first brains, the first legs, the first wings, the first fins etc. How did sonar systems, electrical sensors and chemical signaling come about? What about navigation systems that imprint on stars, or the earth's magnetism? We could go on forever. Most evolutionists reduce the explanation to "natural selection" which in essence explains nothing. Natural selection only maintains the gene pool, it does not create a single DNA sequence. Telling logically consistent stories only bolsters the myth.
So is it greater faith to believe that there is a designer, when external evidence not only suggests he is there, but proves it to many? Or is it greater faith to believe in millions of unseen, unexplainable statistical miracles?
