As time passes and technology evolves, historical context is critical to understanding the famous "watchmaker analogy.

A Failed Metaphor for Intelligent Design

Just as a watch is made up of several different pieces, “framed and put together for a purpose,” he reasoned, so too are natural objects—eyes, ears, wings, and bones—made up of parts that combine to serve a higher function. ‘Love jihad’ in India and one man’s quest to prevent it. Every few days, Vijaykant Chauhan WhatsApps me a photograph of himself.

‘Love jihad’ in India and one man’s quest to prevent it

The photographs are invariably scenes of crowds gathered on a north India street corner. Chauhan is right in front: a thickset, mustachioed man in his late 30s, in faux-army fatigues, a camouflage-print baseball cap and sunglasses. He stands with his fists tightly bunched, arms upraised.

Beneath a temple thought to mark the location of the Buddha's birth, archaeologists may have discovered the literal roots of the religion: an ancient tree shrine that predates all known Buddhist sites by at least 300 years.
