(Book: I Don’t Have Enough FAITH to Be an ATHEIST, by Geisler and Turek, chapter 8 )
Last time, we only made it as far as the first page of Chapter 8, in which Geisler and Turek congratulate themselves for having contrived a “discovery” of God’s existence based on the mistaken assumption that the universe must have a cause. Turning the page, we find that the authors continue in the same vein.
From the Teleological Argument we know that God is:
- Supremely intelligent, since he designed life and the universe with such incredible complexity and precision.
- Purposeful, since he designed the many forms of life to live in this specific and ordered environment
Let’s stop there and have a look at these arguments in a real-world context.
