If there are no moral facts then anything and everything is morally permissible.

112
If I know object A is designed, perhaps because I designed A myself, and if A has qualities B, C, D, and E then if I want to know whether object F is also designed I need only check to see whether F also possesses qualities B, C, D and E. If F has these qualities then I am justified in thinking F is designed. I don't see how your understanding of Hume speaks to this.

Design most often means something like the pre-planned arrangement of parts into a whole that serves a preconceived purpose. Talk of design need not reference order in the world, either real or only apparent.

Are we talking about the devil or something else?

Define what you mean by design.

117
If we want to know whether an object like a strand of DNA was designed then we need only look at an object we know to be designed like a computer and if the first has all the pertinent qualities of the second then we may infer that the first was designed.

evolution is always a good one.

You think religion and science are at odds over evolution? What do you mean by evolution anyway?

Before we proceed let me warn you that this talk may go further than you're willing to go. I don't want to waste your time or frustrate you needlessly. If you'd like to stop now, just let me know and I'll back off.

Let's focus on one claim at a time.

there is no reason to believe that what we understand as design is really design

Am I justified in thinking computers are designed? Or how about the sentence you now read. Did I not design it? Did I not arrange the letters in a specific order to achieve the purpose of conveying my meaning? Is this not design?

Which discipline is most trustworthy depends upon the claim in dispute. Do you have an example of a point at issue between science and religion?
