There are a lot of things that may be possible in the world, but are highly unlikely: such as dealing oneself a royal flush in poker two times in a row. Of course mathematics shows that such an event is possible, but it isn’t reasonable to believe that such a thing happened without deliberate intervention. If I’m playing poker and I see you dealt two royal flushes, I’m going to accuse you of cheating. That would be the reasonable thing to do. Similarly, seeing the strong evidences for a creator from the natural world, one is reasonable to infer deliberate intervention. —Lenny Esposito (from, Separating What’s Possible from What’s Reasonable)
