Explain Hume's criticisms of Aquinas' teleological argument. (10)

LOGACE

Hume claimed Aquinas' version of the design argument to be deeply flawed

  • LOGACE Hume said the conclusions of the argument were too much of a leap away from the evidence at hand. Hume agrees that the universe is ought to be explained but saying that there must be a designer and saying that designer must be god is too great leap away from the evidence
  • LOGACE for Hume we need to experience something to know that its true/actually happened and if we were ever in doubt that God made the world there is no way we can gain any experience or observation to check if he did or not
