At Evolution News: C. S. Lewis and the argument for theism from reason

Jay Richards: Natural selection could conceivably select for survival-enhancing behavior. But it has no tool for selecting only the behaviors caused by true beliefs, and weeding out all the others. So if our reasoning faculties came about as most naturalists assume they have, then we have little reason to assume they are reliable in the sense of giving us true beliefs. And that applies to our belief that naturalism is true.

Could Earth be in quarantine from space aliens?

The Percolation Hypothesis holds that they can’t overcome the laws of physics any more than we can and that colonies would lose touch with the home planet due to slow communications, thus losing interest in space travel goals. But now, if there is a purpose behind the universe, maybe we and the aliens weren’t intended to meet. That was C.S. Lewis’s view.
