It was supposed to be a simple project to make 10 free standing podiums. My son needed to do a civic project and a local community center needed these podiums as a teaching aid. He had to come up a design and make a list of materials, so a trip to a local home improvement store was made to come up with ideas. We found what we needed to make the project as simple as possible and built our prototype. The project was approved and a date was set for my son and a group of friends to build the rest. On the date, things came up and all of the friends bowed out and it was up to my son’s girlfriend’s family and our contact at the community center and her husband and us to complete the project. As the project unfolded, things continued to go wrong, this simple project with lots of help, turned into lots of trips to the store to correct wrong parts, split wood and finding solutions to unexpected snags. It occurred to me that with all the problems that this simple project had with only a few components and an intelligent designer, that it would be impossible for even a single celled organism, massively more complex, to just assemble by random chance from random components. Although I hold to and teach the Biblical creation in six days and this was not news to me, this project gave me a good comparison to help others understand the futility of believing in evolution.
