|“But can you think of any evidence that would indicate arson, but not suggest how it was done?”|
Joseph has repeatedly failed to respond to this challenge, even after indicating that he could.
|“The God’s Must Be Crazy”- A coke bottle drops from an airplane flying over a remote part of Africa. The main character never saw a Coke bottle before. He didn’t know what it was but he knew it didn’t come from Mother Nature. He didn’t have to know Coca-Cola. He didn’t have to know anything about glass-blowing or glass-blowers.|
The Bushman mythology also includes the spirit world's influence on rain, healing and the success of the hunt. Whether the Coke bottle was inhabited or gifted by spirits is not a scientific question.
|“Mainstream” science disallows a design inference a priori.|
That is not correct. Archaeology is one such science that makes a point of studying design, more specifically, artifacts, artisans and their art. Science disallows appeal to an ineffable designer as a substitute for evidence, a.k.a. God of the Gaps.
