Behold the spontaneous generation of order from pure energy:

This has nothing to do with debunking Intelligent Design, so why is that in the title?
And where is the "alternative theory"? This is well-understood physics.
Also, resonance of a metal plate occurs by vibrating the plate. "Pure energy" is not involved.
The patterns are determined by the frequency of vibration and the boundary conditions (i.e. the shape of the plate and how it is connected to the oscillator).
Intelligent design is always insisting that ordered systems cannot arise without a order-maker. That is the alternative theory I am challenging. I take this video as a demonstration of a self-ordering process utilizing sound energy to create patterns in matter. We have many other instances of this in nature. Freezing water molecules become more ordered than before. Life is a self-ordering process. Magnetic fields order iron filings in a pattern. Does this not debunk intelligent design? That order is a self-generating phenomenon? That entropy is reversed in bounded systems?
I believe you are wrong.
ID as far as I am aware, generally applies to the arising of Life. And in actual fact the only scientific answer for that is Abiogenesis.
Intelligent design (ID) is a religious argument for the existence of God, presented by its proponents as "an evidence-based scientific theory about life's origins", though it has been found to be pseudoscience.Proponents claim that "certain features of the universe and of living things are best explained by an intelligent cause, not an undirected process such as natural selection."Educators, philosophers, and the scientific community have demonstrated that ID is a form of creationismthat lacks empirical support and offers no testable or tenable hypotheses.
