The Laws of Nature require a lawgiver.The Argument from the Laws of Nature
Premise 1 of the Argument from the Laws of Nature is true because the concept of “law” implies teleology, or an “ultimate cause.” Throughout history, haven’t sentient human beings been responsible for establishing and obeying societal laws? Similarly, how could non-sentient physical objects follow a consistent pattern of behavior apart from a teleological origin? There is no reason the universe should be “law-like,” when it could just as easily be a chaotic mess.
Premise 2 of the Argument from the Laws of Nature is an observable fact of science.
