“You put your signature on the whole Universe,
but they still can’t read your handwriting.”
Natural scientists who believe the Darwinian theory of evolution are living proof that you can have intelligence without common sense. However, intelligence without common sense is nonsense.
With regard to natural selection: how can there be any form of selection without some form of intelligence? How could something without any intelligence be expected to make the infinite number of choices in order to evolve from absolute nothingness to the present human condition?
After all, without intelligence, what inspired the so-called progression of random variations? And how could any non-intellectual force select which of the variations is best suited as the next evolutionary step?
Simply put, if it is indeed random, the law of average would take effect. So even if it got lucky and “chose” the best once or twice, it would eventually choose a destructive path.
After all, without intelligence there is nothing to base the decision on. It could not possibly know what is or isn’t the best choice to evolve. In fact, why would it even be trying to evolve if it has no intelligence to realize it needs to?
In other words, how can anything without some form of intelligence even know what condition or state it is presently in? It would have no reason to think it needs to evolve, or how to act upon that need. — And, without intelligence, what would have instituted the natural law in the first place?
Consequently, I do believe in a modified form of natural law, it is one that was set in motion by an intelligent Creator.
