On this episode of ID The Future we have a short clip about the The Privileged Planet. In the book, authors Guillermo Gonzalez and Jay W. Richards suggest Earth was designed for scientific discovery. They introduce a new idea, more than just that the earth is just a rarity in the universe they argue that Earth is ideal for scientific observation. Specifically they critique the Copernican principle, which holds that Earth is not special in its ability to support life. In this clip, Jay Richards lays out the problems with the Copernican principle.
