The real problem is not this, but rather the common claim or assumption
by young earth or intelligent design (not to mention a wide range of
other examples of doubtful science) that a problem with conventional
theories proves my alternative model. It is necessary to show that the
alternative model provides a better explanation in order to favor the
alternative. This is also a point that Kuhn did not handle well to my
reading.
