The materialistic alternative to Intelligent Design?
The way the anti-ID scenario has that forming is by a collision of two planetary bodies- the proto-Earth and a "Mars-sized" body not yet locked into a nice orbit (as the planets in our solar system are now). IOW this is "sheer-dumb-luck" at its finest.
And even starting out- the laws that govern nature AND the constants they contain had to have formed/ arisen via "sheer-dumb-luck".
Now the honest thing to do is present this fact to the students. I personally would love to see their faces after they are told that and then informed of the following:
“There is a final, even more bizarre twist. Because of Moon-induced tides, the Moon is gradually receding from Earth at 3.82 centimeters per year. In ten million years will seem noticeably smaller. At the same time, the Sun’s apparent girth has been swelling by six centimeters per year for ages, as is normal in stellar evolution. These two processes, working together, should end total solar eclipses in about 250 million years, a mere 5 percent of the age of the Earth. This relatively small window of opportunity also happens to coincide with the existence of intelligent life. Put another way, the most habitable place in the Solar System yields the best view of solar eclipses just when observers can best appreciate them.”
However students will never learn this because of the dishonest deceptive tactics used by anti-IDists...
