As far as I know - only one planet has a clockwise rotation (backwards) and that is Venus. The other planets all spin counter clockwise. Which other 2 planets spin backwards?
I know Uranus has a "bowling ball" type of axis spin - but I am not sure it is backwards. I am not sure about Pluto, but most evidence suggests that it was not part of the original Sun/8 planet solar system configuration. Maybe it is a trapped "comet" or a lost moon of Neptune - that is still up for debate. Gee, science at work - what a wonderful concept!

Anyway - how is that any proof of "intelligent design"? Why would an intelligent designer create a solar system with such blatant abnormalities in the first place? Oh I got it - God can do whatever it pleases.
