Some kinda crazy like, If some babies weren't born with cleft palates then this brilliant surgeon would never have been given the talent from god to help them.

I've always thought of the "Mysterious Ways" argument as just a very large turd in the cesspool or religious rationalizations.

Yeah, because who was the dick who fucked up not only the design of the eye, but allows for it to not replicate itself perfectly in every human, thus necessitating the use of spectacles for those fortunate enough to have the luxury to own them?

Fuckin' dick...

Wright blabbers and contradicts herself, before repeatedly backtracking... Dawkins just let's her tie herself in knots and hardly needs to say a thing.

Whatever I saw was over a half hour long, and mind numbing.
