RE: What Intelligent Design might tell us about a god.
God is usually also supposed to have intelligently designed our environment.

What kind of designer makes virtually 100% of that environment lethal to the inhabitants? Why make the laws of physics so that they are glued to a rock and unable to explore the immense expanse? The second problem seems like a "solution" to the first, but that makes no sense from a design perspective if the problem was a choice in the first place.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Yeah, I wasn't even going to touch the idea why a god that seems to require worship or praise would wait some 9-ish billion years after starting the universe to make the Earth, or wait a further 4-ish billion years after making the Earth to start life...or whatever hundreds of millions of years fiddling with life forms before getting around to "designing" us...if praise & worship was its goal.

Around atheist circles it would be like "beating a dead horse", or maybe just "adding fuel to the fire", although doing those 2 things together might add up to a decent meal...

Hmmmm.... Drooling Tongue

What kind of designer builds a system where virtually everything shits all over the place?

One that thinks that would be funny, I guess.

For a couple hundred million years, God was really into trilobites.

RE: What Intelligent Design might tell us about a god.
it seems we are using the definitions of god told to us by others. What would the processes we see around us tell us about the system we are in?

"christian god" is out and so is all other omni type gods. Is the system made as best it could have been given the materials and processes we see? weather we worship it or not is a descriptor for personal needs.

And for about a billion he was into cyano-bacteria. Thus we had the greatest pollution event in the history of Earth as "bug farts" increased the oxygen level from near zero to over 20%. Makes "Clean Coal" so damn jealous I bet.

The problem with IDiocy is that we don't have a clear purpose. You know what a 747 does, you know what a watch does; you never know WTF a human's gonna do.
