Minipost: The Watchmaker’s Argument

30 Aug

The Watchmaker’s Argument is perhaps one of the most fundamentally flawed arguments for intelligent design I have ever heard. In other words, you walk along a beach and see a watch, and immediately recognize it as having been designed, I guess due to its complexity and appearance of design.

Or should I say, EVIL-ution!

Yes, folks, I’m here today to tell you that I have proof that evolution doesn’t work! I played by your rules, you science-loving heathens, and have the evidence needed to disprove the entire theory of evolution!
