Intelligent Design belittles God, Vatican director says

Intelligent Design belittles God, Vatican director says
(Catholic Online)
In his remarks, he also criticizes the cardinal archbishop of Vienna’s support for Intelligent Design and notes that Pope John Paul’s declaration that “evolution is no longer a mere hypothesis” is “a fundamental church teaching” which advances the evolutionary debate.

[…]

He stresses that the theory of Intelligent Design diminishes God into “an engineer who designs systems rather than a lover.”

A systems engineer can’t be a lover? Gosh darn! No wonder Hedy Lamarr was married six times.

God as a lover? What's his pick-up line? "Are you an angel? Wanna be one?"

I've heard engineers like to ask, "What's your sine?"

From the internets ... one of God's pickup lines: "You don't know me, but you've been shouting my name for years."
