ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposition of some people on intelligent design as a replacement for a supplementary mechanism to evolution. When it comes to natural disasters, intelligent designers at a micro level are found to be uninterested to those fine-tuned creations at a macro level. While intelligent designers who fastidiously crafted their beings are freed at a macro level.
