If the teleological argument is correct in saying that God created humans like a machine, then you would expect humans to be perfect creations, but we are not. Humans are flawed in many ways including the fact that we have extra organs, and that our skeletons are not created properly for the way we walk. Humans are not machines in any way, and the fact that we are not perfect machines is explained by the theory of evolution. Therefore the theory of evolution is proof against the teleological argument and that God is the creator of the human race and the earth. I feel that this argument fails to prove the existence of God.
I totally disagree with this statement, because I don't think that you can go from being somebody to being nobody or the other way around. I think that our conscientious is to great to go from being totally aware of our surroundings in life, to absolute nothing in death. Basically, I think we are influences greatly by our biology, but it does not make up every component of who you
Justice of Creation Victor Frankenstein created a living, thinking, and intelligent creature, and with that comes certain responsibilities. Even though he should not have tried to “play God” and create someone that is the same, in all but physical appearance to other human beings. I’d like to discuss Victor creating the creature, the responsibilities that he should have accepted when he created him, and the consequences of the aforementioned decisions. First, Victor Frankenstein, or any other person on this earth at any time, has absolutely no right or power to create life. There is a relatively strong connection to God in this book and many people during this time period believed in God.
Swinburne counted this by claiming that the order in the universe does require an explanation. As some is not even necessary for human survival. Just because we are there to observe it does not make it less unlikely. However Charles Darwin formulated the theory of natural selection which provided an alternative explanation for the design of the world, without reference to creation by God. ‘Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation for this existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind’ Richard Dawkins supports Darwinian evolution and rejects God.
It’s human nature and one cannot do anything to stop it. Humans have been created that way. Animals on the other hand, don’t have this ability. They do not have the ability to judge and pick apart a person. The animals in The Wars defy the human tendency to judge.
The teleological argument states that because the natural world displays some purposive order or design then there must be an intelligent designer (Evans pg 77). McCloskey goes on to state that there are no indisputable examples of design. The issue with this statement is from a theistic perspective there is plenty of evidence that state the opposite. The design of the human body in itself is an example of an intelligent design. Our bodies operate on its basic functions identical yet externally we are individuals.
Functionalists see all other family types as inadequate, abnormal or deviant. This shows that they don’t think that any other family type other than the nuclear family will benefit society and help to achieve the best it can. Functionalists also believe that there is no need for family diversity on society. They also feel that families such as single parent or same-sex families are inadequate or abnormal because they are only able to provide one side of the learning structure which a child needs when it comes to socialization because they don’t have the
Charles Tripicchio Soc 185 Scientology December 5, 2010 There are plenty of religions in the world. The more widely known religions focusing basically on a creator that made the universe for whatever reason and may or may not interact within the universe. Regardless or religious belief, they all have a founder and places they consider holy to the religion. From my first glance of scientology, I feel that it is an ecclesia and will read more about it. While scientology is not considered a religion on this table, I feel it still lacks things other religions have and believe also that things it claims are facts have been claimed to be wrong through science.
Without God, there can be no absolutes or enforced morality. Furthermore, the cosmological argument asserts that because this universe has a beginning, it must have been created by something greater. Finally, when looking at the universe, we are forced to logically conclude that a God was behind the creation due to the deliberate way in which it is obviously set up in order to sustain human life. These principles show that Atheism, while given the appearance of science and discovery, fails to address the major questions that the theology of a creator God more than
There is no way science can achieve the ultimate perfection of nature or us. It is born from imperfect beings and studies an imperfect universe. The articles I found and the excerpts from Being Human discussed in class are not showing perfection in any sense of it and it is not even showing the act of perfecting something. They show the utmost aspect of imperfection in the human race; however, it couldn’t have been in any other way, as perfection does not exist but as an impossible and paradoxical concept. As perfection is anathema to life and we are alive, science objective must not be perfecting nature but improving human life.
