Dr. Ard Louis on science and faith: two videos

I was intrigued by this short video showing Dr. Ard Louis (Oxford University) articulate a simple but profound critique of this fundamental aspect of the reasoning behind intelligent design.

Read Darrel Falk’s helpful summary and commentary here.

This same sort of argument can be applied to the various attractive (but always suspicious) “fine tuning arguments“.

As I said, I was struck by Dr. Louis’s evident intelligence and so went googling to find more about him. In so doing, I discovered that just a few nights ago (January 24, 2010) he gave a lecture at Stanford entitled “Can Science Explain Everything?” in which he argues that even when we accept the answers we find in the laboratory, our search for answers doesn’t necessarily come to a dead end there.

So, what do you think?
