Does the Atom Have a Designer? (Unabridged)
Does the Atom Have a Designer? is a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind analysis that critically examines if the atom is simply the result of chance events following the Big Bang. The atom, with its proton-neutron-electron structure, its quantized properties, and its many internal interactions, realizes the structural, electromagnetic, nuclear, chemical and biological functioning of the universe. This book, written by a secular researcher searching for answers, examines quantum behaviors such as wave-particle duality, quantum superposition, quark-gluon interactions within the atomic nucleus, and electron-photon interactions within atomic orbitals, and their role in realizing the many functionalities of the atom. Aristotle’s four causes are used to investigate the why questions to explore the causality of the atom. The answer to the question: “Does your kitchen table have a designer?” does not require a scientific or a mathematical explanation; it requires a Logical one. Aristotle’s theory of causality was developed to show that four related causes (or explanations) are needed to explain change in the world: a material, a formal, an efficient, and a final cause. A complete explanation of any material change will use all four causes. The why questions related to the atom are investigated in great depth using this approach toward causality. The commonly cited objection: “Then who designed the designer?” is also addressed in the book. And, yes, your kitchen table does have a designer.
