introducing guests or describing talk-show brawls.
2. Describe the arguments of the philosopher in as much detail as you can, and in your
own words.
3. On the basis of what the two philosophers say, you as talk show host must decide
whether the design argument proved God’s existence
4. Make sure to reference all quotations and paraphrases from the text.
