The Philosophical Angle on Intelligent Design

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 11:03

A good take down here by Larry Herzberg.

The strongest objection relates to the fallacy of the man who was dealt a Royal Flush and said, since the odds are so great against being dealt this hand I must not have it.

If Earth, the universe, and the laws of physics seem fine-tuned for our existence it’s because we are a product of the earth, the universe and the laws of physics. Life does exist and, as a commenter above points out, winning the lottery is not a proof of the existence of any god.
