In the past few weeks, we have looked at various arguments for the existence of God: the cosmological argument, the moral argument, and the argument from Jesus' resurrection.
As we continue to work our way through the Apologetics Bible Study Curriculum, this week we focus in on the Design Argument or the Teleological argument. Telos is a Greek work meaning purpose or ultimate end. Teleology is the study of a thing's purpose or design.
Most likely, the best know version of this argument is William Paley's Divine Watchmaker Argument.
Paley reasoned that if one were to find a watch laying in the middle of nowhere, you would immediately come to the conclusion, upon examination, that there was an intelligent mind behind the design of the watch.
This week's video focuses on three parts of the Design Argument:
- Fine-Tuning of the Universe or the Anthropic Principle
- The Nature of Information
- Irreducible Complexity
Courage and Godspeed,
