You're right. I was wrong when I wrote that. They`re not *completely* seperate in other mammals.

@Angilion, excuse me a moment...

**does the `happy cat` dance**

Ah! That`s better! Glad we could come to an understanding over our misunderstanding, eh? It was only a misunderstanding, no hurt feeling on my part.

I still think that there isn`t a "better way" to do it, evolutionarily speaking, or else that way would be normal! QED right?

It could be "improved" for various tasks, that`s true! But over the next 1000 years would those improvements help or hinder the species?

I`ve explained my definitions, if you know of a more accurate term please let me know! "ID" is not one single, unbending theoy, there`s lots of variations: much like Christianity OR Atheism... or Evolution for that matter...

Ollie, this vid is from a different lecture in the series so the transliteration is different, but it's no troll:

Well, davy, you got me on that one. Well played.

Quit using YOUR beliefs to twist my words, thx.

You're using words *that already have a defined meaning*.

So they`re not your words. You don`t get to redefine them at will and then complain when other people use the existing meaning.

I could state that phoneboxes can fly and then later state that MY opinion is that "phonebox" is the name of a type of seagull. Does that mean that everyone should redefine "phonebox" to be the name of a type of seagull? If so, what should everyone call actual phoneboxes? Does everyone get to redefine words at will? How would language function if that was the case?

Please stick to the fact: YOU said humans are the ONLY 'land mammals` with a common tube for breathing and eating. THAT is obviously FALSE.

You`re right. I was wrong when I wrote that. They`re not *completely* seperate in other mammals.

But it`s also obviously wrong to ignore the key point - the setup in humans is distinctly different to all other mammals (and other animals) and that means that humans are prone to choking, quite often fatally. That is very obviously not an intelligent design and *that`s* the key point.

Humans could do a better job, in many cases a far better job, of designing humans (and other animals). It is utterly irrational to claim that they are the product of intelligent design by a god with infinite intelligence, wisdom, knowledge and power when the "design" is inferior to that which humans could come up with.

God is to perfect a being to have just spontaneously appeared. He must be the product of some form of, idk, intelligent design?
