Polytheistic explanations failed at explaining origins and patterns in nature (thunder, water, stars etc.) This is relevant because…
Christian explanations failed at explaining origins and patterns in nature For example, the explanation for…
•… Laplace’s planetary orbit theory debunked “God-did-it.”
•… Darwin’s biological design theory debunked “God-did-it.” (In conjunction with advances if star-physics and DNA).1
But no, the monotheistic track-record…
• …is constructed from 2-3 controversial examples.
• …has a near-zero sample size (even if including controversial examples).
• …assigns a “fail” to theistic explanations by methodological fiat.
• …is formed by sampling that isn’t necessarily representative.
• …is unstable given the threat of paradigm shifts.
• …when corrected, includes trending theistic success.
David Snoke (Physics professor at Pittsburgh; 2006 elected Fellow of the American Physical Society): “In the 19th century, two gaps caused problems for Darwinists. First, they had no explanation for the mechanism of transmission of traits from one generation to the next. Second, they had no answer to Lord Kelvin’s argument that the earth could not be old enough to allow random variations to produce all the apparent design we see, because simple physical arguments showed the sun could not burn for millions of years.” [In Favor of God-of-the-Gaps Reasoning PSCF 53 (September 2001): 152-158.]
