You remind me of that scene from Dumb and Dumber, "So you're telling me there's a chance!" You mentioned the fallacy of argument from incredulity. I think there must be a corollary to that, the fallacy of argument from baseless credulity.

At some point the odds must lead to the conclusion that it is impossible. Otherwise it's just "materialism of the gaps".


The odds of design being true are at least as long. We have countless observations of designers, none of whom have ever been observed tuning the constants.
