Lynch: “certain aspects of nature reveal a purpose that reveals the ‘Genius of Nature’ ... there literally is a Genius (namely, God) behind nature, and we can demonstrate this by the example of the existence of Shakespeare’s works, Euclid’s geometry, the periodic table and its elements, fine-tuning in the cosmos, and biological complexity. The degree to which one is convinced ... will be dictated by one’s exposure to both philosophical argumentation and contemporary science. I remain unconvinced.”
