Where Science and Faith Converge

TNRTB Classic: A Watchmaker’s Design

By Fazale Rana - August 16, 2012

A few days ago I wrote about the molecular rotary motor F1-F0-ATPase, arguing that its supramolecular architecture and operation bear an uncanny similarity to a man-made machine. This similarity revitalizes the Watchmaker argument for God’s existence.

Critics of the revamped Watchmaker argument assert that the analogy between machines and living systems is nothing more than an explanatory analogy, an illustration that provides a framework to guide research in the life sciences.

As I have written previously, work in nanotechnology provides a powerful response to this challenge, and in doing so, further strengthens the case for biochemical intelligent design. See the following resources for more on this topic:
