I received news from Nature.com this week that featured two articles side by side using design in the headlines. One article, shown on the right in the image below, criticizes the theory of Intelligent Design. The other article on the left, “Butterflies shine brighter by design,” discusses the incredibly sophisticated optics built into butterfly wings. It’s hard to read that article and not appreciate the intelligent design (that somehow evolved by chance?) in butterflies. Apparently two different editors were involved for this news release, resulting in an interesting mixed message. Or did this occur by design?
