Proper design by the Creator?

Posted by ArthurDent on 02 Mar 2016 at 11:25 GMT

I disagree with the authors that the hand was the product of "proper design by the Creator to perform a multitude of daily tasks in a comfortable way". Even if I should not be able to convince the authors, editors and peer reviewers of this study of the non-existence of a divine intelligent Creator, please consider:
Humans occasionally use their hand as a tool of masturbation, one of "a multitude of daily tasks" performed "in a comfortable way". Masturbation is a sinful activity according to most religions, including Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and apparently even Buddhism: https://en.wikipedia.org/...
Thus, the hand cannot have been designed by a divine Creator, but in fact possibly by the Devil himself, to lead the humanity (and other apes) into temptation.
