More thoughts on falsifying ID
1) High information content (or specified complexity) and irreducible complexity constitute strong indicators or hallmarks of (past) intelligent design.
2) Biological systems have a high information content (or specified complexity) and utilize subsystems that manifest irreducible complexity.
3) Naturalistic mechanisms or undirected causes do not suffice to explain the origin of information (specified complexity) or irreducible complexity.
Refute any of those premises and ID, as it currently stands, falls, just as any tripod would if one of its legs gets removed (and nothing replaces it).
So if it was demonstrated that life could arise from non-living matter via unintelligent, blind/ undirected (non-goal oriented) processes, ie "blind watchmaker-type" processes, Dr. Behe's criteria for IC as well as Dr. Dembski's criteria for CSI would be met, and Occam's Razor would neatly slice off the requirement for an intelligent agency.
However is "falsification" really a way to detect "good" science from "bad" science? I will explore that in another blog entry... (for example how can we "falsify" the premise that humans "evolved" from non-humans via some blind-watchmaker-type process? yet that premise is being promoted as scientific)
It should also be noted that the three premises point to the fact that ID is based on positive data, coupled with a negative. Which refutes the anti-ID notion that ID is only based on negative data.
