What would happen if Hagelin seriously weighed in on the current,
highly charged, debate on intelligent design? How would he argue,
left, right, or center?
Hagelin would probably have to go with MMY's statement in the SBAL
All the innumerable decisions that are apparently the result of
natural laws in the process of evolution are the innumerable
decisions of the almighty personal supreme God at the head of
creation. He governs and maintains the entire field of evolution and
the different lives of innumerable beings in the whole cosmos.
But to me, this does not look different from seeing the universe as
run by natural laws, i.e., whether it is a person or laws reacting
to behavior, the outcome looks the same. God is not directing the
activity of creatures, but is reacting to their behavior -- if
somebody smokes cigarettes (like David Lynch with his packaday habit
after 30+ years of TM), making the body coarse, the reaction is to
create disease which eventually eliminates the body -- this is
natural selection, whether it is done by a person or a set of laws
So although Intelligent Design people would probably be satisfied
with MMY's statement (that is, if he wasn't a goldurn Hindu), so
could scientists who see the universe as natural-law-based.
