No, not intelligent design. Instead it’s incompetent design. Read a great conversation with Don Wise, professor emeritus of geosciences at University of Massachusetts Amherst.

He points out that one of the significant examples of incompetent design is our own skeleton.

No self-respecting engineering student would make the kinds of dumb mistakes that are built into us.

All of our pelvises slope forward for convenient knuckle-dragging, like all the other great apes. And the only reason you stand erect is because of this incredible sharp bend at the base of your spine, which is either evolution’s way of modifying something or else it’s just a design that would flunk a first-year engineering student.

    Perhaps the Flying Spaghetti Monster was busy while designing us.

    Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few weeks i will be launching my own site, i’m not great with designs but i really like the style of your site so it would be cool if i could find (or pay for) something with a similar look. 🙂 Thanks!
