Pros and Cons for Intelligent Design

A case against intelligent design can be inferred from the way CERN’S cyclotron sends out quantum particles at near light speeds on colliding orbits. As these particles collide they seem to pop in and out of existence. Stephen Hawking has theorized that black holes and even the entire universe (or multi-verse) may similarly expand from or shrink back to an infinitely small singularity and then nothingness.
The case made in my previous blog-post agrees that while this theory points against intelligent design logically, it seems plausible from a “common sense or faith-experience” that some truths are self-evident, like the realities of life, freedom, love, and the “pursuit of happiness.” In a subsequent blog-post we shall explore the compatibility of such certainty with the uncertainty principle elaborated by Heisenberg.
