    It takes the help of the Holy Spirit to pull it off. :bow:

    People resist authority, even if it harms them to do so.

    If you are fine with living in error then that is fine. But trying to pass on false beliefs to others should be viewed as a sin.

    Again, it is far more likely to be just confirmation bias. If you cannot think of a rational way to test your beliefs they are not very reliable.

    All you are offering us is your personal authority.

    I just state what I believe. I don't try to influence others.

    I mostly accept them instinctually at this point.

    I mean that people reason themselves around authority, be it legal, professional, or religious authority.

    This doesn't actually address the point I was raising.

    When everything that exists can be described by the word "designed", then the word becomes meaningless.

    Wouldn't you prefer to be right instead of merely satisfied in your beliefs?

    My beliefs work well for me, as I'm sure yours do for you.

    Do atoms have design?

    Nope. They have structure. The structure that can be worked out from the "laws" of quantum mechanics.

    So you can't discern a difference between a rock and a watch.
    If you can't determine a difference between design and non design, and you can't, then you cannot determine what design is.

    Define "Design." Make sure you include a test by which we can determine if something has design as opposed to something that does not.

    That appears to be lacking.

    Why not at least try to learn the basics?

    So would any evidence of evolution change your mind about that at all?

    What is not designed and how do you tell the difference, if everything is designed you are just saying that design = exist, so just say exist and admit that design doesn't exist.
    What is not designed?
