Intelligent Design: The theory that life, or the universe, cannot have arisen by chance and was designed and created by some intelligent entity.
Yesterday I attempted to play Yu-Gi-Oh with Keb. Let’s not even get into the mountains of rules, provisions, quid pro quo, and other such nonsense that comes with the game, which alone was enough to make me long for Yahtzee or Monopoly. Instead it was the size of the print on the card. You see, I’m at that stage in life where bifocals are needed. Yep, that means that somehow in the SAME set of eyes is the need for at least two different prescriptions.
In order to read the cards, I had to take my glasses off. Yet, in order to see what Keb was doing, I needed them to be on. Needless to say, all that along with an alarming amount of rules I couldn’t manage to memorize meant that not only didn’t I learn to play, the whole process was a waste of time.
If my eyesight is the result of intelligent design, then we need a more gifted designer. This, my friends, sucks, and, truth be told, is only going to get worse. How is that intelligent?
