A Level: AQA • Edexcel • OCR • WJEC

A detailed investigation into William Paley's famous presentation of the design argument, including how it works, and why it's convincing. This lesson provides a brief biography of William Paley, and covers the text of Natural Theology. This includes discussion of his analogy of the watch and his analogy of the watchmaker, which both support his argument that the existence of life on Earth strengthens the argument for the existence of God.
