Intel-ligent Design

Eric S writes,

Banias, Timna, Dothan, Yonah and Merom – no, these are not found on random pages of an Israeli tour book, they’re names for computer processors developed by Intel – the worldwide leader in microchip technology! So what gives? Are they jumping on the Madonna hip-to-use-Hebrew bandwagon? No – these chips were all either developed at an Intel facility in Israel, or by an Israeli named Mooly Eden, who works for Intel development at their headquarters in Santa Clara. Yonah seems particularly appropriate – it’s a dual-core chip made for mobile use – just like Jonah – the most mobile of prophets, whose own core was pulled in two directions – to serve or to flee? To forgive or to punish?
