← Evolution: What is 'Natural'?

Can you present any argument or evidence for the existence of this god of yours? Before I entertain the existence of your god as a probability, you'll have to show that to be the case.


Riandouglas, there are loads of arguments that I can refer you to. The one that is relevant to this thread is the very existence of the faculty of reason, which is not reducible to natural causes. Science since Aristotle has always been driven the observation of rationality at the heart of the universe. Along with many scientists and philosophers I contend that this rationality points to an extra-, non-material origin of the universe. As Paul Davies (not a Christian of course) said: "The impression of design is overwhelming". Scientists (Kepler, Newton et al) looked for and found scientific laws because they believed in a Law-giver.
