Most likely we’ve all heard the oft quoted mantra “extraordianry claims require extraordinary evidence.” When it comes to the ID/evolution debate, the question is, what is the ‘extraordinary’ claim? Of the two claims below, which is the extraordinary one and why? What would constitute the ‘extraordinary’ evidence to support it and why?
1. An all powerful supernatural being with both the knowledge and the will purposefully brought all things into existence, including life on planet earth through means that we have not yet discovered, may never discover and do not understand, but did leave behind hallmarks of this intelligent design in the bits of nature we can observe, most notably CSI and IC in certain kinds of natural artifacts.
2. The blind purposeless forces of matter and energy, acting over eons of time through chance and necessity (or their combination) produced all the bits of nature we can observe, including all life on planet earth through the means of random mutation and natural selection.
