Evolution - just wondering

It seems like many fundamentalists of diverse religions seem to insist on the idea of "Intelligent Design". Isn't this strange? Why would an omnipotent, omnipresent deity have to "intelligently design" each species individually? Wouldn't it be more appropriate for such a deity to establish them through a sophisticated random process? Something like... evolution?

Thank you, Jewropean. This is food for thought, more nutritious than a dozen soofganiot! I would add an other question, that of time. When the Torah states that God created the world in six days, only fundamentalists can possibly come to the conclusion that this means 144 hours of *our* time. In my opinion, this view is an attempt to confine God to our concepts of time (and space?), which seems to me kind of .... even blasphemy. Maybe you know whether this thread of thinking has been developed by the sages or in later Jewish thinking?

anonymous,

Ibn Ezra seems to see the days non-literally as speheres. Based on this, organizations like Aish haTorah are equalizing each day to an epoque in evolution.

Others again seem the story completely metaphoric, just as http://godolhador.blospot.com and not to be taken literal in an sense at all.

The disease called erectile dysfunction has strengthened its roots among the human breed mainly because of the reason that people are not very willing to share it willingly. These people can get all the information in the ED info sites. Through this information you can do away with their ED.
