L 5.26

“It is like arguing that a particular card hand is so improbably that it must have been preordained”. (p. 89)

This does not represent the profundity of the teleological explanation. Using the card analogy, it’s more like being dealt four aces one million times over. What are the odds of that? G. K. Chesterton said “So one elephant having a trunk was odd; but all elephants having trunks looked like a plot.”
