3. Hume argued similar effects cannot imply similar causes, as we would have to experience the beginning of the universe

  • True
  • False

4. Is Hume doubting the belief in God in the teleological argument?

  • Yes, there is no God
  • No, only that it cannot show God exists
  • Yes as there are other reasons to explain design

5. What was the issue of using Paley's watch analogy with God?

  • Watches are the effects of evolution, over millions of years people were unable to create such, and as skills passed it was learnt and so is not applicable with God
  • Effectively, God created watches
  • If you do not believe elements of the analogy are comparable, you cannot argue that the causes are similar and the analogy would not work
  • We cannot use language to describe God so we cannot describe him with something we can describe
