Okay... are there really NO ID supporters on this board who can help me figure out if a simple rock is designed or not?

No, there are not.

Come on guys. I know you are out there.

What makes you so sure?

If ID 'theory' can't even be used for something as simple as this, what use is it?

Its only purpose is against evolution, have you not read the Wedge Document?

They're makin' claims! Quick, everybody pile on and angrily correct all his errors regardless of whether or not they're on topic.

Er... no, please don't.

The topic is: How do you use ID theory to determine if something, say a rock, was designed or not?

There's no need to talk about evolution or god, I mean "The Designer". If your answer is, "it can't", well then that's that. I agree, it cannot. Its not a real theory and its not science and it doesn't actually *do* anythign at all. Its a sham to disguise religion.

Here's a list of the things you typed that are incorrect:

The DA by definition demands a supernatural, transcendent, metaphysical being.

I'm not sure what "DA" means though...

It{evolution} is no more likely to be empirically proven than is design

many evolutionary concepts cannot be proven

whether evolution is just as valid an idea as Design, or whether Occam would be more pleased with it, is a matter of opinion.

His Majesty Stephen Hawking's idea that the universe sprang from nothingness

{abiogenesis} could be said to boast only shaky compatibility with the Principle of Parsimony

it {Creation} is certainly simpler than the idea of so many years and so many miniscule changes taking us from "goo-to-you,"

I'm not going to get into why they are incorrect because it has nothing to do with how ID can be employed to determine design.


Oh, hey, I'm still waiting for reply to Message 73
