Arguing for Atheism 4: Are we the outcome of chance or design?


The argument from fine tuning is looked at here. Le Poidevin’s main contention is that just like causation is misapplied in the cosmological argument, chance is misapplied in the fine tuning argument. He looks at different theories of what chance actually is, and then shows how each cannot be applied to theism. Again, this one went over my head a little. It would take a rereading to synthesize it, but I have an inkling for what he’s saying, and I like the novel approach.
