This book is a great example of rational thinking. The way Paley states his argument is flawless, and he uses all the resources available by his time. His arguments, of course, are no longer useful to creationists, this book was written way before Darwin and Wallace structure their theory, but at his time this was a must read. Even Darwin and Wallace read the book lots of years later, when they were students, and this book imprint (at least as I'm concern) a great prejudice Darwin had to surpass to establish his theory. It is so well written, and, again, so well founded, that dismiss it was quite a task. Recently Dawkins wrote a book "The blind Watchmaker" that was inspired by Paley's "Natural Theology", and solidly refutes his arguments (irrefutable in Paley's time, since no scientific evidence or theory had been powerfully establish as to do so). This is a classic book, it is incredibly interesting from a lot of different perspectives, I highly recommend it.

13 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Jack Kaufman on January 26, 2000
I stumbled across this book quite by accident (or divine providence) and now it is one of my greatest treasures. Chapter One lays the foundation for Paley's argument for God's creation serving as the source of life and species. He poses two situations: if one stumbles upon a rock and questions its source, "it has, perhaps, been there forever" seems a rational answer; if one finds a watch laying on the ground, the explanation for the source of the rock seems to fail as an explantion for the source of the watch. The balance of the book is devoted to pointing out the fallacy of assuming that life could emanate from chance happenings. This book is a "must read" for Creation apologists, and it provides a challenging test to those who would rely on evolution as an explanation of the source of life. I would appreciate having any perceptions of flawed logic (by Paley) brought to my attention: jjkaufman@mac.com
