Atheist could intelligent design be a plausible theory if we take God out of the equation?
Is it possible that the Cosmic Universe created itself? Giving rise to consciousness and materialism so that it could see itself?
Do Atoms exhibit human qualities by changing its behavior when we perform different test on it? Are they conciousness?
Human qualities? Since when did consciousnesses become exclusively a human quality. Are there not animals which have lower levels of consciousness than us and
isn't it plausible that a being could be far more conscious than us.
For it to be a theory, you need EVIDENCE. And intelligent design has exactly zero.
it's plausible that my dog is a reincarnation of elvis
Sure, if the universe had human qualities.
*Edit* Damn, Leo beat me to it!
In a sense, it is. God never was part of the equation. Life 'installed' itself as part of the 'boot up' system, clearly there is life now, and there wasn't life then. If it didn't come from inorganic inanamate materials, where did it come from?
That sounds pretty far-fetched.
No. It always existed.
The universe is not able to see itself and not conscious regardless if it was intelligently designed or not
Well now then it wouldn't be intelligent design now would it? It would have evolved naturally.
Intelligent design could be a plausible hypothesis if and only if there is some evidence for it - and there ain't any.
