So this eight-year-old boy asked me : If a house needs a designer, why doesn't the universe need one?

He said that for example, a house needs a designer to do the right measurements to ensure that our heads won't hit the ceilings when we walk. Haha :- P

How should I answer him? Thanks beforehand for your inputs :-)

Anymore new answers? :- )

  • Actually you do no need a designer to make sure the ceilings are fine. You need a structural engineer then you need an architect l.

  • A house has specific functions. You make it with the end result in mind. The universe isn't like that.

  • If the universe was designed for humans, why can't we live in 99.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of the universe?

    Have you seen a designer create a universe?

  • Clever but the universe is not man made it just is. Plenty of things were never made that we still have.

    • Thanks. What if he also asks why the universe doesn't need an architect?

    • id tell him there are people called physicist that are trying to figure that out. id tell him that humans dont know everything about the world but scientist are trying to learn as much as possible. lol im kind of weird like that though i bought my 3 year old nephew a compound microscope that is way too advanced for him but hey i like wasting money.

    • Hahaha :- P

  • Depends on what your beliefs are. If you side with the ID argument then his point can make some sense. If you are opposed then you are going to have tell why it doesn't need one.

  • Depends what you believe... I believe in God so I would say that the Universe does have a designer, but He isn't human and is cable of a lot more, and everything in the universe is in perfect approximation and calculations :)

  • I believe the universe does have a designer so I would just say, you got that right. God is the Great Designer.
