Simon's Theory of Origins was brought about by findings of the author (an auditor) regarding science in general and evolution in particular.
Simon's Theory says that an object is designed /created if ALL of the below criteria are in the positive (YES). Otherwise, the object is either accidentally formed or something else.
Criteria #1- Is object made up of parts, or components that can be recognized by our senses; i.e. sight, hearing, smell, touch, power of observation?
Criteria #2- Was the object formed by natural or man-made process?
Criteria #3- Is there ABSENCE of reasonably credible evidence that:
(a) the object was formed /made due to accident or blind chance, OR
( b ) the object is a mere by-product (or resulting waste) of a process
Criteria # 4- Is there UTILITLY or PURPOSE--apparent or not--for the object?
Criteria# 5: Is the object capable of being WHOLLY or PARTIALLY imitated, copied, or reproduced?
Definitions:• Utility or Purpose—means use; ordinary usage.
• reasonably credible evidence – It is an evidence that when evaluated by a reasonable person—a logical, open-minded and thinking person—would lead him to believe something asserted. An example of such evidence is the mathematical probability (odds) of something happening given certain conditions.
Using the above criteria, the following are some results:
#1 Humans are designed /created because all of the above 5 criteria are positive (Yes). The utility of humans is that we are part of the food chain. Alive we are omnivores. Dead we are food for the maggots.
#2 The earth is designed /created because all of the above 5 criteria are positive (yes). The utility of the earth is that it is the habitat of living and non-living things.
#3 Time is a mystery because criteria # 1 and 2 are negative (NO) So is the Creator or God.
