Raising Arizona is one of my favorite movies. It is chock-a-block with hilarious throw away lines like this one:
Which brings me to Costa Rica. Apparently, there are several hundred round stones that archaeologists are certain were designed. This is from the Wiki entry.
The stone spheres (or stone balls) of Costa Rica are an assortment of over three hundred petrospheres in Costa Rica, located on the Diquís Delta and on Isla del Caño. Locally, they are known as Las Bolas(literally The Balls). The spheres are commonly attributed to the extinct Diquís culture and are sometimes referred to as the Diquís Spheres. They are the best-known stone sculptures of the Isthmo-Colombian area. They are thought to have been placed in lines along the approach to the houses of chiefs, but their exact significance remains uncertain.
The Palmar Sur Archeological Excavations are a series of excavations of a site located in the southern portion of Costa Rica, known as the Diquís Delta. The excavations have centered on a site known as “Farm 6”, dating back to the Aguas Buenas Period (300–800AD) and Chiriquí Period (800–1550 AD).
It is amusing to watch some scientists insist on design inferences with respect to a relatively simple specification, while others refuse to countenance even the bare possibility of the same inference for a far more complex and intricate specification.
Round stone: Yeah, that is surely designed.
Staggeringly elegant and complex semiotic code (i.e., DNA): Nope, no way, no how. Can’t possibly be designed. Piece of cake for blind, unguided, directionless natural forces.
It makes you think that second group has issues, probably of a metaphysical variety.
