Atheistic Teleological Arguments: Index

I first learned about so-called “atheistic teleological arguments” (ATAs) when I read Michael Martin’s Atheism: A Philosophical Justification in 1995. When I first read Martin’s chapter on ATAs, I found them very puzzling. Since 1995 I have thought about them off and on but without investing the time to really understand them. Since I have learned much about Bayesian confirmation theory since 1995, I’ve decided to finally attempt a formal assessment of ATAs once and for all.

The purpose of this post is to provide an index for all Secular Outpost articles which discuss ATAs.
