Penguins Prove Intelligent Designer
Wednesday, September 21, 2005
(SNN Stevenage) Christian Conservatives are claiming that the film March of the Penguins, a documentary about penguins, supports the idea of intelligent design.
The film is a real life documentary which follows a flock of emperor penguins for a year as they must travel by foot seventy miles though harsh conditions and freezing temperatures so that they can mate with Morgan Freeman. The male and female penguins then take turns watching the eggs as they take turns taking the 70 mile track back to their feeding grounds to eat. Due to the harsh conditions, many chicks die.
"The complexity of the penguins' lifestyle testifies to a Divine Creator," said one commentator on Christian Answers. "To think that natural selection or even the penguins themselves could come up with the idea to migrate miles and miles multiple times each year without their partner or their offspring is a bit insulting to my intellect. How great is our God!"
But someone could argue than any intelligent creator might put the breeding and feeding grounds a little closer together, maybe 7 miles, or even 70 feet. Seriously, if any people had to take turns walking 70 miles through freezing cold to feed their babies, that have a high chance of dying, they would probably not be praising god for putting them in such an ingenious situation. Really, all this film proves is that if there is an intelligent designer, he is kind of a dick.
