Podcast: 16 October 2009

Does the complexity and orderliness of the universe prove God’s existence? Yes, according to Design Arguments for the existence of God. Here, we consider six objections to two versions of that argument – the Teleological Argument and the Fine Tuning Argument.

This podcast is part of ReligionCasts – my series of podcasts on the philosophy of religion.

  • Review of Design Arguments
  • Objection #1: The designer need not be God
  • Objection #2: The universe is not so orderly or so good
  • Objection #3: The argument reverses cause and effect
  • Objection #4: Who designed God?
  • Objection #5: Order is not design
  • Objection #6: God is not required to explain the order of the universe
  • Summary


Remember the Tip Jar!

The mission of Philosophy in Action is to spread rational principles for real life… far and wide. That’s why the vast majority of my work is available to anyone, free of charge. I love doing the radio show, but each episode requires an investment of time, effort, and money to produce. So if you enjoy and value that work of mine, please contribute to the tip jar. I suggest $5 per episode or $20 per month, but any amount is appreciated. In return, contributors can request that I answer questions from the queue pronto, and regular contributors enjoy free access to premium content and other goodies.
