Her egg was artificially imseminated by the sperm of her year-old husband, Mauro, at Dr. Severino Antinori's fertility clinic in Rome, Italy. Rosanna Della Corte had earlier lost her only son at 17 in a terrible car accident.
The simplest and easiest to understand of all the arguments ever offered by believers is the Argument from Design. The argument is remarkably simple. It goes as follows: The existence of a suit implies the existence of the tailor who made the suit. The existence of a poem on a piece of paper implies the existence of the poet who created that poem.
In other words, the suit itself is the proof of the existence of the intelligent creator of the suit, no other evidence is necessary.
There are levels of design, sophistication, and functional complexity that the human mind simply refuses to accept could be accounted for by any undirected process. How to precisely define such levels is not our topic of discussion.
It is clear, however, that a suit and poem by Robert Frost, and a living bacterium, are certainly well over that line.
The entire plot of the classic film, A Space Odyssey is based on this obvious principle. At a dramatic moment in the film, when a rectangular monolith is discovered buried on the moon, it is clear to those who discover it and accepted as absolutely logical and reasonable by everyone watching the movie that this is unmistakable proof of alien life.
Does the incontrovertibly true Argument from Design apply to living organisms? The human body is an incredible piece of machinery; who put it together? It certainly required a great deal more sophistication to build a human being than to construct a rectangular monolith. The existence of highly sophisticated living organisms implies a highly sophisticated designer of these organisms.
Believers call this designer, the Creator or God. What could possibly be the flaw in such an argument? Nobody Disagrees With "The Argument from Design" Before we actually deal with the objections raised by atheists and skeptics, I want to stress: Nobody disagrees with the Argument from Design.
There is nobody in his right mind who does not understand that the existence of the suit itself proves the existence of the tailor who made the suit and that the poem itself proves the existence of the author of that poem.
In the debate between skeptics and believers the disagreement is not about the validity of the Argument from Design.
The argument itself is undeniably true.A BRIEF HISTORY OF INVENTIONS. by Tim Lambert. Inventions in the Ancient World. The Egyptians invented the sailing ship about 3, BC.
