Definition of teleological argument in English:
The argument for the existence of God from the evidence of order, and hence design, in nature. Compare with cosmological argument and ontological argument.
- The most important of those proofs were the ontological argument, the cosmological argument, and the teleological argument.
- So it is very hard to see how the teleological argument, any more than the cosmological, can overturn the argument from evil.
- What about the various arguments that have been proposed for the existence of God - the traditional cosmological and teleological arguments for example?
