13. Give a statement of the Contingency version of the Cosmological Argument for God's Existence in explicit numbered premise/conclusion format. OK to paraphrase it in your own words, but it should include all the needed steps. Explain two objections that could be raised against the Contingency version.
14. What is meant by " teleological order "? In what sorts of cases do we find teleological order? Give some examples. In what way might teleological explanations seem to conflict with the normal temporal order of explanation? How might having a designer resolve that apparent time conflict?
people to see. A nonliving example is the clock. The clock was built by a person for the purpose of telling time which it does with the different mechanics that make it up. Teleological argument may conflict with the normal temporal order of explanation because it tends to explain the present in terms of the future instead of in terms of the past. Meaning, a systems organization or purpose is explained by what outcome it’ll produce instead of what caused it to behave the way it does. This time conflict may be resolved by saying that while we talk about the outcome that the organized system will produce in the future, the features that the system has were given to them by a designer from the past that gave them those features with an intended purpose in mind.
