I'm a little confused on a criticism of the teleological argument made by the philosopher David Hume.
He says that the analogies made between the way the universe works and the way machines work are unsound. He then goes on to say that the world is more like a vegetable or inert animal; something that grows of its own accord, rather than something made by hand.
How does he come to this conclusion? Is it because we can see that the world is slowly developing and changing over time (for example, through climate change) similar to a vegetable, whereas a man-made machine remains the same?
Thanks in advance.
