Here, Baylor stalwart for God, Charles Weaver:
Weaver says that intelligent design is little more than an ego trip. How do we know a biological system has been intelligently designed? Because it’s designed the way we would have designed it, in a way that we can understand it. “That’s a nice little egotistical thing, isn’t it?” he says. “It’s designed to make us feel more comfortable. We do best when we believe ourselves to be at the pinnacle of creation. And it doesn’t have much to do with theology; it has much more to do with our insecurity as a species.”
