Programs, bugs, DNA and a design argument Alexander R. Pruss may 27, 2004
|Abstract||I argue that an examination of the analogy between the notion of a bug and that of a genetic defect supports an analogy not just between a computer program and DNA, but between a computer program designed by a programmer and DNA. This provides an analogical teleological argument for the existence of a highly intelligent designer.|
