    My dear Elia, it seems you have missed the point. the idea is simply, that the complexity of the universe suggests a creator, not in a concrete fashion, but as an implication. those not strongly invested in any position, should simply look at the idea, and make a decision as to whether they think random evolution, or intelligent design is more likely. again, you need to be somewhat free of prior intellectual commitment to be able to do this. and it seems that you are not. Also, do you not think that you could have chosen less offensive examples. Your example, was about where someone found money. He could have had a dream where his grandmother came to him, not a biblical figure. Why drag in the names of prophets, and chassidic rebbes. It seems somewhat gratuitous to use your article as an opportunity to cause emotional pain to those who may cherish the ideas that those names symbolise. it seems to me that this is just another poorly written article, by a deeply invested person. You dont like the idea of G-d, or people who feel comfortable trusting their intuition that there is one. Elia, in the name of the liberalism you so clearly support, you have ended sounding more neanderthal, dismissive and closed minded than those you are trying to attack.
