Biased against design

Have you ever wondered what sort of evidence would convince an atheist that the universe was designed? Scott Todd from Kansas State University gave a startling answer:

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic".

Candid admissions like this show us that some people will reject a Designer, no matter what the evidence. But recognizing design has long been a part of science. When an archaeologist finds an artefact like a piece of pottery, he knows immediately that it was designed by someone, even though he can't see the designer. So if design has no place in science, archaeologists are in serious trouble.

Forensic science—who killed her?—is also about recognizing the evidence of intelligent agency, proving that it was no accident. But when the evidence in science points to God being the intelligent designer? Never!
