Don Muncie asks a great question:
How is your fundamental argument different from the classical teleological argument?
In Paley’s watch argument, the analogy between a watch and a living organism was unclear. However, the definition of code in biology and its definition in computer science (Claude Shannon) are identical.
Paley tried to force you to a conclusion. I offer five options for where the first code came from:
1. Humans (time travel)
3. Random accident
4. Unknown law of physics
Take your pick.
Oh and by the way, not only is #3 not science, it’s anti-science. It doesn’t explain anything.
