Different Design Arguments

Different Design Arguments December 4, 2013

The major difference between the kinds of design arguments one encounters in cosmology and biology is this: The design argument in physics involves accepting what the majority of scientists in that field conclude, while the design argument in biology involves rejecting what the majority of scientists in that field conclude. And conversely, the objections to the latter are scientific objections, while the objections to the former are about philosophy and worldview. For instance, that various biological features are irreducibly complex is disputed by most biologists, while most physicists do not dispute that the basic physical constants of our universe are just what they need to be for life of the sort we are to exist within it, and the only question is how that can be and what the significance is for our philosophies and worldviews.
