Design

What is design? To design means to organize, give structure or form to something in a deliberate, purposeful manner. The St. Louis archway and the Eiffel Tower are well recognized forms that were deliberately designed. So were the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Gizeh and the Bamiyan Buddha. The Grand Canyon of Colorado is definitely a recognizable form which was created by the flow of water and wind over millennia. Nevertheless, it was formed by the forces of nature and involved countless unplanned events. There was no deliberation and purposeful action involved, other than Mother Nature going about her business. The Grand Canyon, therefore, was not designed. Other than by Mother Nature. Hmmmm ....
