Strobel provides footnotes that point to scientific studies that presumably support the generalizations of his scientists. But who is going to look up the information? And who could understand it if they bothered to look it up?
The Darwinists are faulted many times for not providing a detailed explanation for how natural processes could have produced this or that, but none of the theistic scientists ever offer a detailed explanation of how a creator could possibly have created this or that same thing.
The best argument for a creator is the fact, if it is a fact, that scientists on the other side in some cases acknowledge the data that Strobel’s scientists allege and come up with desperate theories such as punctuated equilibrium or the idea of multiple universes to accommodate this data. When scientists on both sides acknowledge the same data, the data favors intelligent design:
“Science, you might say, has discovered that our existence is infinitely improbable, and hence a miracle.” p. 42
“The multiverse idea rests on assumptions that would be laughed out of town if they came from a religious text” p. 144-145
