Does the order and function of the Atom arise from random events?
"Does the Atom have Designer?" is a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind analysis that critically examines if the order and complexity of the Atom arises simply from random events following the Big Bang. The Atom, with its complex structure, its quantized properties, and its many dynamic interactions, realizes the structural, electromagnetic, nuclear, chemical and biological functionalities of the Universe.
This book, written by a secular researcher searching for answers, examines subatomic behaviors such as wave-particle duality & quantum superposition, quark-gluon interactions within the atomic nucleus, and electron-photon interactions within atomic orbitals, as well as their role in realizing the many functionalities of the Atom.
Aristotles 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. Aristotles 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. The controversial and unverified Multiverse hypothesis, often used against a Design argument, is also discussed.
And yes, your kitchen table does have a Designer.
(Note that this is an argument based on Design, and not on fine tuning.)
