Misleading Book Title, 29 April 2009
Stenger struggles to show that natural forces could have led to carbon-based life as we know it i.e. without any need to invoke claims for a Creator. If we are generous with Stenger and accept that possibility, the point still remains that this, in itself, is no proof whatsoever that God does not exist. Suppose I find a broken vase at home and blame the cat, who's often seen lurking around it, for knocking it off the table. Then somebody comes along and provides enough scientific evidence to suggest that a gust of wind from an open window nearby could have generated enough force to cause the disaster. So? Is this scientific proof that the cat did not do it? Not at all. It just provides an alternative theory for what might have been. Sorry, Professor Stenger ... you did NOT prove that God does not exist. Not at all.
