ID is identically equal to creationism. For design automatically implies a designer; to talk of design whilst denying the designer, is akin to talking of music, whilst denying the musician. And who else other than god could this designer be ? Ask yourselves this question, could there be a designer of life who ISN'T god ?

Recorded human history is about 3000 years, but industrial civilization is only 200 years old. (The first railroad ticket was sold in 1808; that's a good starting point for deployed industrial technology.)

I prefer to use the first deployment of the steam engine as a starting point, which pushes it back to 300 years. By 1808 the steam engine had been in wide spread use all over England for nearly a century, and Watts patent was expired.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
