Why A Cosmic Artisan?
Visiting with my kids over Father’s Day, things eventually turned philosophical as they often do, and as we were discussing the vastness of the universe and all the secrets it holds, I wondered aloud why many of the arguments surrounding existence include an insistence upon adhering to some formulation of the watchmaker analogy. What underlying mechanism motivates us to anchor our collective consciousness to that seemingly immutable berth? Why is the idea of a cosmic artisan so commonly held - and defended - to the point it becomes the preferred outcome? Why is that alone so broadly desired as the most comforting answer from the numerous threads of thought?
