|—-“But if Law and Chance are themselves a product of Agency, then nothing in our universe is not the product of Agency, which invalidates the argument for ID.|
ID can detect that the products from the first Agency cause [God if you like] that manifest themselves as law-like regularities [and its cooperation with chance] are different from the products of the first Agency cause [God] that manifest themselves as designed objects [DNA patterns] and [human agents] by examining the design patterns IN the DNA and those left BY the humans and recognizing [a] that they are similar and [b] that natural laws have never been known to produce anything like them. Once the nature of those patterns have been established, ID can then distinguish between the law like regularities designed by the first Agent, which have no such patterns, and the designed entities from the first Agent which do.
Do you [the AtBC denizen if you wish] think that it makes a [circular argument] [a] more convincing and [b] less circular IF you are using these [nice] square brackets AND write some words in CAPS?

Thus, a realistic [computer] simulation [of evolution] would allow the program, OS, and hardware to be affected in a random fashion." GilDodgen, Frilly shirt owner
