Specified Complexity in Muslim Apologetics

arroba Email

A Muslim friend from London sent me a link to the following YouTube video:

At around the 7-minute mark, the speaker makes a specified complexity argument (interestingly, attributing it to the Koran).

The treatment lacks some nuance, but it’s in the right ballpark, and he’s clearly reading our stuff. I’m glad to see that these ideas are going cross-cultural.

It's not called the kalam cosmological argument for nothing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kal%C4%81m Mung
Sadly, most ordinary Muslims are still in the dark when it comes to the ID vs Darwinism debate. Those who are aware of the destructive influence of Darwinism, and the materialistic philosophy that supports it, tend base their counter arguments on religious texts. On the bright side, the Qur'an and traditional Islamic thought are self evidently predisposed to ID, and to the rejection of dogmatic naturalism. Speeking as one, it really shouldn't take much to get them on side IMO. Alan

Found another interesting video on this channel, with PZ Myers, AronRa and Dawkins on it. Dawkins comes at the end and comes out with the same nonsense as usual. ute
Most cultures around the world generally find the design argument compelling. It with primarily white men that live in the US and England that get their panties in a bunch over it. Take a look at the new atheists from an ethnicity and economic perspective, basically they are all a bunch of well off cracker ass honkeys from the US and England. junkdnaforlife

Hi Bill, I'd sure like to know what you currently think about whether and how Chance can generate information. When you find time :) Mung
