Arguments Against Design Lyrics

2. Arguments Against Design (4:12)
A universe so complex and intricate
Some believe arose from grand design
A product of art and contrivance
Attributed to a power divine

Does our knowledge, so incomplete
Lead one to this conclusion?
Better to be a sKeptic
Than to follow a false illusion

A source of hope and fear
That puts power in the hands of priests
A force to reward and avenge
And tame the savage beast
A doctrine that takes refuge
Where science can't yet tread
We choose not to trust our logic
But imagination instead

To police our earthly behavior
And keep the masses under control
To assuage our fear of death
The promise of an immortal soul

Faith cannot move mountains
We see them where they're not
We believe in the ancient myth
And not our rational thought
A doctrine that takes refuge
Where science may soon tread
Rather than imagination
Let's find the truth instead

Man created in his own image
This great dictator of events
And the priests shall inherit the Earth
While the innocent man repents
