The purpose is to take away the idea that a God designing everything that has design-like qualities is as probable, if not less probable, than scientific ideas such as natural selection. While these ideas are certainly just as valid as the idea that God created everything, it is more difficult to apply scientific explanations, due to the fact that no hypothesis in science can ever be proved, only disproved and or turned into a theory. With God, there needs to be no proof or process, just trust which is easier to do while still being
