Claim CI100.1:

Design is self-evident. You just need to open your eyes and see it.


Wells, Jonathan, 2006. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design. Washington DC: Regnery, 83.
Anon, Jan. 2003. Feedback. (2nd from end)


  1. This claim lacks any substance. It is nothing more than a subjective assertion. That design is far from self-evident is demonstrated by the difficulty people have in trying to describe the objective evidence for it.

  2. There are good reasons why people should see design that is not there.
