I'm glad that you chose these 3, as they aren't simple to explain, but are probably the most rewarding to point out because they aren't obvious at
Appeal to Probability
It is no coincidence that these forces exist, and in exactly the right proportions for life to eventually form.
Claim:Life exists because of Forces in the the exact right proportions.
You cannot take as granted that these are the only proportions of forces suitable for sustaining life merely because probability dictated that Life
emerged from this specific set of proportional forces. You must evidence the claim that this specific set of proportional forces is the only one that
allows for life before you can begin to hope to argue that it was intelligently designed that way.
There is no known way to make test that theory in my estimation.
in order for the universe to exist as utterly complex as it does, there must be some, shall we say, 'Divine Intelligence' behind its
Claim: Divine Intelligence exists because the Universe is complex.
If a universe can exist without being complex, does that prove that this universe was intelligently created merely BECAUSE it is complex? No, because
if a simple universe can exist without intelligent design, probability dictates that a complex universe can also exist with no help from an
Argument from ignorance
There could not have been a 'time before' God, because both the concepts of 'time' and 'before' did not exist.
Claim: Time has a beginning.
You are claiming that Time has a beginning, because God made it. You offer no evidence that it does, and are merely arguing from the position that
their isn't any evidence to counter the claim.
