The law giver.

This article is a response to a comment made by Vikus Coetzer, in the article http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/The-Problem-of-Evil-20130814

The comment made on August 14, 2013 at 10:55 came down to:

- (name) sorry I thought we were talking about humans when we were talking about choice. The universe is governed by specific laws, and who is the law giver...?-

I don’t understand why it should be a two-horse race. I also don’t understand why it should be a ‘who’.

Anyhow, according from that ‘logic’ presented by the commentator, we can look at what two of the the possible answers proposed could be:

1.       Nature.

2.       The Holy Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Let’s have a contest.

Get the two contestants on stage waiting for being declared the winner.

Then only nature turns up.

The Holy Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn’t even turn up.

We have empirical, verifiable  evidence for the existence of nature. We have empirical, verifiable evidence that nature existed billions of years ago.

On the other side, there’s no empirical, verifiable evidence for the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Or that it ever existed. Just books claiming that it existed.

The winner is…..wait for it…..wait for it…wait for it :

Nature.
