It is commonly claimed that the alternative to intelligent design is chance. But chance is not a mechanism. Chance is an occasion that allows something to be done. It is the statistical probability that a random, unguided event occurred naturally. Something that happens unpredictably without discernible intelligent intention or causal agency. Either all-natural, physical things, the universe, stars, galaxies, the earth, life, and biodiversity emerged by a lucky accident, spontaneously through self-organization by unguided natural events in an orderly manner without external direction, purely physicodynamic processes, and reactions, or through the direct intervention and creative force of an intelligent agency, a powerful creator.
