“Strange isn't it that creationists insist so strongly upon the principle that everything must have a designer, but then conveniently grant immunity from this principle to their god.”

    Like stacking all of your blocks in an upside down pyramid, and then failing to account for the bottom block. While any error or inaccuracy in the bottom block(usually their personal Yahweh variation) will propagate up the stack, because so much about it is being depended upon.

    Luckily not everyone forms their worldview around a singular focal character/idea. Allowing one to be far more comfortable with deeper introspection and self-correction.

    When the believer’s worldview revolves around a central figure, their first tendency is to expect others to do the same. You will likely find believers asking “If you don’t believe God, what takes its place”? I consider a good answer to be “My worldview doesn’t revolve around a singular and central character, but derives from many sources based on their considered merits.”

    With regard to who designed the designer:

    Creationists rely on the same argument as scientists do when scientists rely on the law of gravity, where coincidence it offered up as evidence.

    You can explain gravity, its origins, or how it works just like God.

    The difference being anyone can drop something and observe gravity at any time over and over again. Coincidence is must harder to replicate with any reliability.
