God new evidence

GOD: new evidence


No need to believe!

(Beyond Ourselves #12)

Previous: Darwin's 'horrid doubt'       Next: True Beliefs?

If our brains are the product of un-directed Evolution, why should they produce beliefs that are true? Evolution does not need true beliefs: all it needs are beliefs that will help a creature to survive.

But it is even worse than this for naturalism.  Evolution does not need any beliefs at all: 

What is important for a creature to survive is what it does, not what it believes. It must avoid threats, find food, and reproduce successfully. But there are all kinds of creatures, like worms and bacteria that do this without having any beliefs at all.

So there is no reason to think that Evolution would give rise to true beliefs.

‘Astronomy leads us to a unique event, a universe which was created out of nothing, and delicately balanced to provide exactly the conditions required to support life. In the absence of an absurdly improbable accident, the observations of modern science seem to suggest an underlying, one might say, supernatural plan.’
- Nobel Prize-winning scientist Arno Penzias
