It's just a rock. What should I be looking for?

If you have taken your rock from surrounding soft earth, and the shape of the rock fits the resulting hole in the earth exactly, then I.D. theory tells you that the rock has specified complexity.

{ABE} Didn't read the post above. In which case, a perfect fit to the grooves of your shoe would indicate SC.

Information rich rocks.

The moment you consider something simple, like a rock, it stops working. Why is this? Because ID 'theory' is an argument from incredulity, and a rock offers nothing to be incredulous about.

I.D.ers are keen on information as evidence of intelligent design, and the Young Earth variety are frequently incredulous about the information that rocks can impart to us. Your little rock may well be able to answer the question "how old are you?" It might also be able to tell us about conditions on earth when it formed, and will surely be able to answer about the general process that formed it.

If it proves to have high information content, is that evidence of design?
