Kirk Durston on design in the universe


Kirk Durston talks about John D. Barrow (1952–2020) and Frank Tipler who introduced the conversation we have today:

Very nice 8-minute video, Kirk. I recoiled a bit when you said that believing in a Creator required a big leap of faith (around 6:36). After a second and third hearing, I know what you meant to say but others may not or may become confused. In any event, these people do indeed make a HUGE leap of faith, and then they call it "science". Jorge
Pretty easy question. The difference is the word "incredibly." According to the Free Dictionary . . .
in·cred·i·ble (?n-kr?d??-b?l) adj. 1. So implausible as to elicit disbelief; unbelievable: gave an incredible explanation of the cause of the accident. 2. Astonishing, extraordinary, or extreme: dressed with incredible speed. [Middle English, from Latin incr?dibilis : in-, not; see in-1 + cr?dibilis, believable; see credible.]
Other common definitions are also available there. -Q P.S. The character set here is limited. See https://www.thefreedictionary.com/incredibly. Querius
