The Singular Prime Mover

This will be short. Look at this argument:

Nature is so beautiful and complex; the planets in our solar system, and our solar system in our galaxy, and our galaxy in the universe all fit and work together so well that it cannot possibly have happened by chance - there must have been a creator.

I want to know why Christians, or any other monotheist, thinks this is a good argument in favor of their position. Obviously, because they've used the singular form of…

Scientific Morality

This thought was inspired by this debate, between Dr. Sam Harris and William Lane Craig, and this debate, between a lot of different people. I freely admit that I probably watch too many debates. Deal with it.
