I have long been an advocate of intelligent design theory because it has always seemed to me that the “God hypothesis” is rational.
It is rational because:
- It has been around for a very long time, surviving many criticisms.
- It is probably falsifiable, meaning it can be tested in a meaningful way.
- The anti-God hypothesis is irrational because it can’t be tested (it is technically impossible to prove a negative).
In the video, Stephen Meyer doesn’t attempt to show that the God hypothesis has been proved, only that it has become viable again at this moment in history due to the current state of knowledge in the hard sciences.
