Gazing out at the sunset and having the feeling that the universe was created by a designer is a perfectly fine feeling to have, but at the end of the day we must be honest and acknowledge that this internal belief or faith is a gut feeling we’re having and nowhere close to a valid scientific theory. A theory like evolution is based on measured observations and has mountains of accumulated evidence to back it up. The difference between a gut feeling and a science theory is a science theory begins with a gut feeling, then tests and presents its findings as an argument for the theory. If we present gut feelings as valid theories in a science class, then we’re misrepresenting what scientific theories actually are and we could raise a generation of children to have a misunderstanding of what the real definition of a theory is. Without a real way to measure supernatural phenomenon, or if it even exists, there will be no basis for creationism contextually fitting into a science curriculum or a textbook. Instead, it should be taught in a theology or world religion class. Creationists who try to inject intelligent design (which is a fancy name for a gut feeling, it’s not a real theory) into a science text book is a bit like if scientists were to start writing scriptures about dinosaurs and men evolving from apes into the Bible. Neither are acceptable.
Wrote an article for CreatingSound.com about creative workflow and things I’ve learned about working in AAA game development as a sound designer.

Pretty happy with how this photo of Seattle turned out.
