More than one exterior designer?

With respect to Susan Bauman’s notions of intelligent design, I would note that it is pretty presumptuous of her to assume that the only designer out there is her version of God. It is entirely possible that aliens in a larger universe than our particular space have designed this universe, “just for the fun of it.”

Why it is that humans always assume that they are just one level removed from the top is beyond me. All that science attempts to explain is about 14 billion years and the physics and chemistry of our present space-time. Beyond the Big Bang lies all eternity in all directions throughout an infinity of time. Surely there is enough room outside the limited reach of science for all sorts of Gods or whatever to happily coexist without getting so insecure about evolution. Why don’t the religionists pick on gravity instead?

As Buzz Lightyear says, “To infinity and beyond!”
