God of the gaps?
John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics and Philosophy of Science at Green Templeton College, Oxford, has written much in support of the design arguments from fine tuning. He writes concerning these arguments: “We should note that the preceding arguments are not ‘God of the gaps’ arguments; it is advance in science, not ignorance of science, that has revealed this fine-tuning to us. In that sense there is no ‘gap’ in the science, The question is rather: how should we interpret the science? In what direction is it pointing?”
His conclusion is that science overwhelmingly provides evidence for a designer of the universe.
Note: But even if it does cost you your job, like what happened to Dave Coppedge – remember him? – would you rather live in an undesigned universe?
