Can Someone Please Tell Me the Difference

Between these following:
Galileo: The earth orbits the sun
Galileo’s opponent: Idiot. Ptolemy established that the sun orbits the earth 1,500 years ago and that theory has served us well ever since.
ID proponent: The best explanation for the existence of complex specified information in living things is “act of an intelligent agent.”
ID opponent: IDiot. Darwin proposed a chance/necessity mechanism to explain everything about all aspects of living things 150 years ago, and that theory has served us well ever since.
The only difference I can see is that Galileo’s opponent seems to have a better argument, because the theory he was defending had been around 10 times longer.
