No Creator Exists
Hi Cliff, how's it going?
I've got some fresh evidence that god doesn't exist. I just came home from the dentist, and let me tell you, no sane god would allow anything like I went through.
Actually, the dentist is a good point to counter so-called intelligent design people. The set of teeth humans have are clearly underdimensioned for their purpose. They are functional for, at the most, 30 years and we live for more than twice that period. Clearly a suboptimized design.
Well, just wanted to bitch a little.

Or, as Robert Anton Wilson asked, "Is God a Dope? or Just Plain Clumsy?"
And as the dentist who did my root canal pointed out, who in their right mind would put extremely sensitive nerves in the center of a tooth?
That evolution used only hindsight in her design of the human body is an entire study -- starting with my spinal column (designed to be horizontal), and continuing on to the canals leading to my ears (designed, again, for my head to be looking downward and my neck to be somewhat horizontal), and on to the fact that my urinary tract wraps around my prostrate (before we became warm-blooded, when it was still okay for the testicles to be internal organs), and on to my eye, which has the photosensitive cells placed behind the nerves and blood vessels -- as with all but a few species, such as the squid, whose eyes evolved independently of those of almost all other organisms.
