We are creationist, it's buried so deep you didn’t realize

A psychologist at Boston University led a study which aims to prove human tends toward intelligent design is by nature. Means it is, *ahem* by ‘design’, hard coded into our brain. During the experiment, series of ambiguous true or false question like,

Flowers wilt because they get dehydrated

Rocks are jagged so animals can scratch themselves

The earth has an ozone layer in order to protect it from UV rays

drive our logic into thinking whether universe is purposeful. These clever questions, is said to have been answered ‘wrongly’ even they were given enough time to ponder upon. Deborah Kelemen, the lead psychologist also suggests that Darwin and Einstein would display the same tendency under such test.

Great work in proving Intelligent Design, :) :)
