Thoughts on God and Design

From my friend deadwinter:
You know, I look at my code, I look at the world, I consider the role of the appendix and our lack of prehensile tails.

This universe (and by extension life) cannot possibly have been designed. It feels exactly like what happens when something just happens to work, and you keep trying shit and failing until something sticks, then something else breaks and you keep trying other shit so long as it doesn't break the previous shit and failing until again something sticks...

So, if there is a g*d he is a software engineer (and a bad one at that).Clearly not much better at it than I am (eyes code), though I admit his problems are a tad more complex. Then again 13 billion years is one hell of a deadline.
