Bad Arguments for ID # 2362
From a Letter to the Editor in the Agusta (Georgia) Chronicle:
Science means the testability of a hypothesis -- well, until a scientist can bring me a dragonfly he created out of organic soup, I'll stick with Intelligent Design and an intelligent designer. My faith is built upon better evidence than a king-sized, fossilized soup bone -- or even DNA look-alikes.
But wouldn't a scientist deliberately making a dragonfly out of organic soup be precisely an example of intelligent design?
Makes a perverted kind of sense in a way. If you bring me evidence of evolution, I'll believe in ID. But I'll believe in evolution if you bring me evidence of ID.
Just like the rocket scientists at NASA proved that the sun stood still for Joshua.
