Dawkins Inference to the best explanation. Thinks his account is better than Paley’s. o Evolution through natural selection is better (makes more sense) Hume pointed out objections to Paley’s argument but Hume didn’t come up with his own argument. o Like Guanilo points out Anselm’s wrong, but doesn’t offer a counter o If Paley is wrong however we need another answer Explains a lot between cumulative and simple selection Sieve- bringing order (dividing by size) through nonrandom Waves on a beach bring all the different sized pebbles in order The hole: smaller rocks will go through the whole if they’re too small Hemoglobin is WAY more complex than the sieve Single step processes are one stop events. Either you have to get them all right (and in order) or erase it falls through (?) o Monkeys and typewriters. Type 25 characters for Shakespeare. Cumulative selective process o The choices you make reflect on previous choices and whether they are correct or incorrect. Generation- you keep things going from person to the next (like someone’s nickname)
