Professor Matt McCormick's Double Whammy

He just keeps getting better and better. His book Atheism and the Case Against Christ is the best of its kind, a superior debunking of Christianity and why it leads to atheism. He has also argued for two tests for faith, the moral test and the defeasibility test, which I've endorsed. Recently he has two posts which I consider a double whammy.

On the one hand, he writes about the basics of what both sides in our debates should accept:
Responsible and mature discussions about God should start with this mutually agreed upon list of basics about the universe we inhabit. Denying these basics, given the quantity and quality of evidence we have in their favor, is irrational and irresponsible. Someone who would deny the basics is either grossly misinformed, or perhaps he is more committed to the religious ideology than to believing that which is reasonable and best supported by the evidence.
What are they?
The Big Bang occurred 13.7 billion years ago.

Only hydrogen, helium, and lithium exist for millions of years until large stars form and create many of the other, heavier elements on the periodic table.

Some of these stars go supernova and distribute these new elements into space.

That matter eventually coalesces into smaller stars, planets and moons like our own.
The Earth formed about 4.5 billion years ago.

Life in the form of the simplest, self-replicating molecules occurs on Earth around 4 billion years ago.

Once there is replication, natural selection and random mutations over billions of years lead to the evolution of more and more life forms, many of them of increasing levels of complexity.

Dinosaurs live from about 208 million years ago to 65 million years ago.
Life on the planet goes through several mass extinctions.

The Cambrian explosion—a rapid proliferation of the kinds and numbers of living organisms on the planet, occurs about 540 million years ago.

Mammals begin to expand and diversify significantly about 54 million years ago.
Modern humans (homo sapiens) originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago.

Human religious behavior starts approximately 300,000 years ago. Link.
Then on the other hand, he writes about what is lacking when Christian apologists claim their particular God created the universe and life as we know it:
Even if they succeed at showing there was some sort of force or forces that caused the universe, or that played a supernatural causal role in evolution, or the fine tuning of physics to be biophillic, they don't show that it was God. That is, you can't get the God that people believe in--the all powerful, all knowing, all good creator of the universe, the God of Christianity, Allah, Jehovah, Jesus, and so on--from the argument. The arguments underdetermine theistic belief. I've been calling this The Gap. And the widespread consensus in philosophy now is that this is one of the central reasons that natural theology as it has been pursued for centuries, fails. Link.
James Sennett calls this gap Hume's Stopper because David Hume first made this type of argument, which stops Christian apologists dead in their tracks, or, it should.

This is the graphic McCormick uses to illustrate the Gap:
