"Why… would someone put the
spark plugs behind the front wheel on the driver’s side of my son’s Mazda?
Seems stupid to me. But if you ask the maker he will explain exactly why. And
your ignorance will shine."
Having worked for a few
manufacturers in the auto industry, I can tell you exactly what the makers
would say. They would say that it was a design fault. They would own up to the
fact that it was poor design… a flaw, if you wish.
I don’t know for sure but I
would guess that the engine in your son’s Mazda was designed long before the
rest of the car and subsequently, had to be compromised due to other factors of
how the car is designed. Happens all the time. There are limited funds for R
and D, so things don’t get thought out quite as well as they should be.
A perfect god doesn’t have
that excuse. Even the maker of your son’s Mazda would look at the routing of
the vas deferens and see that it has not been thought out. It is a flaw. It
works, as do your son’s spark plugs, but it is a flawed design, like your son’s
I don’t see the migration of
the gonads from fish to man laughable at all. To claim the route that the vas deferens
takes was created with intelligence is quite laughable. A little like the
vestigial legs in whales.
If you were to board a
submarine and you found a differential, rear axles and a rusty set of disk
brakes with seized calipers at the rear of the boat, that were clearly designed
into the integral structure of the underwater sea vessel, you would seriously
have to wonder about the designer. A submarine obviously has no need at all for
wheels or a car’s drive shaft.
Yet that is exactly the case
with whales. They have very distinct vestigial legs at the rear of their
bodies, miniature hip joints that are clearly distinguishable, leg bones even…
Why would an intelligent
designer create a fish with legs inside its body? That really would be absurd.
Evolution explains exactly why this is. But why would a creator put legs in a
fish, or needlessly route the vas deferens the long way round?
