That the only evidence they have to support Darwinian speculation is mutations within microscopic organisms?
A technologically mature “posthuman” civilization would have enormous computing power. Based on this empirical fact, the simulation argument shows that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) The fraction of human-level civilizations that reach a posthuman stage is very close to zero; (2) The fraction of posthuman civilizations that are interested in running ancestor-simulations is very close to zero; (3) The fraction of all people with our kind of experiences that are living in a simulation is very close to one.
If (1) is true, then we will almost certainly go extinct before reaching posthumanity. If (2) is true, then there must be a strong convergence among the courses of advanced civilizations so that virtually none contains any relatively wealthy individuals who desire to run ancestor-simulations and are free to do so. If (3) is true, then we almost certainly live in a simulation. In the dark forest of our current ignorance, it seems sensible to apportion one’s credence roughly evenly between (1), (2), and (3).
Unless we are now living in a simulation, our descendants will almost certainly never run an ancestor-simulation.
I think about typing the letter "G," and sure enough, it gets typed somehow. There's the proof. Mind controls matter.

I won't say whether I believe in ID or Evolution (which I feel is very incomplete)...But let's say it all started with the big bang. What was before that? Physicists/Scientists say its irrelevent, which is a cop-out.

I'm still gun-ho for discussing more about ET being the designer.
