Some of us heard this argument all too well. “If God existed, then who created God?” Seems like causation is important for science, right? Well not exactly, in a book called; The Universe: Order without design, the author claims the opposite…
“Physics and cosmology alone may have the answers, says Calle. Combine eternal inflation, in which the primordial false vacuum continuously grows and decays, with string theory and you end up with a multiverse – a vast collection of universes, each of which has a different amount of dark energy. We find ourselves in one where it has just the right value for stars, planets and life because… well, we couldn’t find ourselves anywhere else.”
As seen here, just like mutations in a way, an evolving Universe needs information to expand and become more finely tuned from a previous source. This source is claimed to have no beginning but rather eternal. Why? what’s the logic behind such a proposal, well they say, it’s because “we couldn’t find ourselves anywhere else.” So it’s concluded that a intelligent designer is not needed.
It is interesting to note how explanations of causation is highly important to some of the main defenders of evolution because without it, there is no growth of knowledge as Dawkins points out in his book called; “The BindWatch Maker”
“To explain the origin of the DNA/protein machine by invoking a supernatural Designer is to explain precisely nothing, for it leaves unexplained the origin of the Designer. You have to say something like “God was always there,” and if you allow yourself that kind of lazy way out, you might as well just say “DNA has always been there,” or “Life was always there, and be done with it.”
I know some will argue these are two different fields, causation is more relevant to nature than the Universe itself. Well let’s take Dawkins perverted logic and apply it, if matter and energy are eternal which is like saying “God was always there” then it’s a lazy way out while explaining nothing which Dawkins contends is not science.
I maintain, The Universe: Order without design actually proves nothing, and gives no evidence for the causation of naturalism in the Universe, but draws it’s conclusion based on a story which is not science. It also makes up rules of evidence that it cannot abide by itself but wants to apply it to creationism or intelligent design like we have seen with “The Blind Watchmaker.”
