If there's a design, and we are not puttets, then "we" are not
"we", but rather "they" - entities from the same world where
the designer himself resides. And "we" are watching a movie
about "us", whereas the world we perceive is a mere illusion,
which still can be affected by acts of our will. Yes, this is a possibility.
To me, the debate of evolution vs creation doesn't make much
sense. Sure, there was an evolution. What does it prove?
Nothing. Evolution was a set-up, part of a design. One of main goals
of this design was to hide the fact of design as much as possible.
It was a brilliant idea (one of many); if not for evolution, how would anyone could explain where all
these living organizms came from? The more we discover,
the more "scientific" arguments we have to believe that everything can be explained as a result of evolution of some
primitive automation. So, the design was successful in that it succeeded in convincing our scientists in that there was no design.
The only difference between scientists and non-scientists is:
scientists believe this picture is plausible, whereas
non-scientists, on the basis of common sense, reject this conclusion as utterly ridiculous.
I spent some time thinking over this problem, and found the idea
of design hiding the fact of design quite satisfying.
