this is the argument in question.
The universe is complex and organized If so, the universe must have been designed But if the universe is designed, then there is a designer. So, there is a designer. So, God exists.
I have spliced it into premises.
- The universe is complex.
- The universe is organized.
- The universe is complex and organized.
- If the universe is complex and organized, the universe must have been designed.
- The universe was designed.
- If the universe was designed, then there must be a designer.
- There is a designer.
- If there is a designer, then God exists.
- God exists
I am trying to put this into logical form. If "the universe is complex = A", the "the universe is organized = B", "the universe must have been designed = C", "there is a designer = D", and "God exists = E".
And this is where I'm getting stuck. How do I then move from C to D? And then from D to E? Should it be..
[(A^B)→C]→D? And then the same idea to get to E?
Also, does anybody know any resources that can help me practice putting arguments into logical form/making them valid?
