Your “prediction” can never really be fulfilled. Even if the scientists who perform the experiments come up with multiple plausible ways in which life could have formed, you can always claim that it all points to ID because they had to intelligently design the experimental conditions and we can never really know if those conditions existed billions of years ago. Catch-22, anyone?


So if we say something can falsify ID and it happens you just know we’ll somehow renege on what we said.

You’re out of here. Buh bye.

The funny thing about that is that Ellis was just paraphrasing the argument offered in this UD entry that was written by none other than...........DaveScot!

How dare anyone use Dave's own words against him!!!!

It's natural to be curious about our world, but the scientific method is just one theory about how to best understand it.  We live in a democracy, which means we should treat every theory equally. - Steven Colbert, I Am America (and So Can You!)
