There is another reason why it's not a good idea to bring up the idea of a designer. It's my favourite reason. It is that the idea of a designer stops people thinking. It is a closed gate across the road of scientific investigation, with a sign saying "here but no further".

Stops people thinking? That must be the weakest excuse I've ever heard of for denying that there is a designer! He created us and as far as I can tell there has been alot of thinking going on. In fact I have found that it is evolution that stops people thinking, thinking clearly!
