How to Satisfy a God
The DI laughingly calls this a "satisfying explanation."
How "satisfied" are you?
However, I have ordered his book (before watching the video). I did so with some reluctance, because I don't like handing money over to Discovery Institute. However, given the hype, the book needs serious examination and appropriate criticism.
That explanations be considered irrelevant.
Not that materialistic, or naturalistic, or scientific explanations are irrelevant, but explanations tout court.
For he has nothing to offer in the way of telling us what happens, when, where, how or why, that results in the variety of life - rather than any of the infinity of other ways that it could have turned out. He has, memorably, told us that he is not going to take the "bait" and provide a "pathetic level of detail".
If he feels that it is more important to believe in God than to offer explanations, how can anybody convince him otherwise? Indeed, who would want to?
However, he also seems to think that belief in God (the Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer) is incompatible with offering explanations. I think that there are people who think that it is possible and important to respond to that.
