5.2 The design argument: the universe has evidence of being designed according to plan, supported by the story of Paleys watch
5.2.1 William Paley came up with the design theory. He suggested that if you found a pockey watch and opened the back up, you would see evidence of a skilful watchmaker, a desugner. He then said if you look at the earth, you have to conclude that there is a skilful designer that designed it. This he argues has to be God
