“A Scientific Method to Detect Intelligent Design in Biological Life”
As science advances, it is becoming difficult to deny that intelligent design was involved in the origin and diversity of biological life. The steady march of discoveries which include an artificial origin for the genetic code, molecular nano-machines, molecular computers, programmed software embedded in DNA, microscopic gears and not-so-microscoopic syncro-mesh gears, fairly scream ‘intelligent origin’ for biological life.
One can define intelligent design as an effect that requires a mind to produce. Everyday examples include laptop computers and text messages. The question is, how can we test for intelligent design in biological life, forensic science, archeology, SETI and so forth? As a scientist, I propose the following scientifically testable, verifiable and falsifiable hypothesis: More
