Being a creationist means believing in a god who carefully crafted malaria.

I’ve just been reading this post at Pharyngula. It includes this excerpt from The Edge of Evolution by Michael Behe:

Here’s something to ponder long and hard: Malaria was intentionally designed. The molecular machinery with which the parasite invades red blood cells is an exquisitely purposeful arrangement of parts. C-Eve’s children died in her arms because an intelligent agent deliberately made malaria, or at least something very similar to it.


The only concept more disturbing than the idea that all of existence is the product of random, meaningless accidents is the idea that all evil was carefully and deliberately engineered by God.

To believe God did that and worship God all the same is to be truly monstrous.
