  1. The whole thing is an argument from ignorance, anyhow—the implication being that provided a person (or science) cannot answer the question, the only explanation is a deity. This is just as absurd as claiming that if a person cannot identify the source of a particular light in the sky on a cloudy night, it must be caused by alien spacecraft.

  2. Worse than just being an argument from ignorance, it is a burden of proof shift. I have no requirement to prove the claims of Christianity false. It is up to Christians – if they want to convince me – to provide the evidence that their claims are true. Not arguments, evidence. Even if we couldn’t answer any of these questions – we can, of course – that fact would not provide any support for the veracity of any god-existence claim.

  3. It annoys me when the lay person uses “chance” to imply that something can’t (or shouldn’t) happen. Chance has a precise mathematical definition. Hell, we have a separate stats department at the UofM. Calling something “chance” does not diminish it in any way.

  4. It’s like the law of large numbers. When I deal you 5 cards from a deck with 52 cards, the “chance” that you will get those 5 cards in that exact order is very very low, yet it happens.
