Funny thing then that the intelligent designer who was/is presumable more complex than his creation didn't himself need a creator.
That's a very good point Steve2. It makes perfect sense to the likes of you and me but if you suggest this to a JW you are met with blank stares as if you are a sandwich short of a picnic for even thinking about it.
A long time before I faded I felt that evolution was a more feasible explanation for life on. Whenever I watched David Attenborough discussing evolution I couldn't help feeling it made perfect sense while other JWs in the house would be tutting and telling me to turn it off as he was talking nonesense. Instead I had to accept the story of Adam and his wife Eve the rib lady without questioning it.
However, the eye was always the stumbling block for me, but these videos have been extremely helpful in explaining how anything so complex as the human eye could have developed gradually as life itself evolved. I will make notes so next time someone smugly quotes the eye as 'proof' of creation I will be ready for them!
