    Er, i'd imagine refering to ur class notes/going to the library to see what Aquinas and Paley said in connection to the Tel. Arg. would be a good place to start. Here's a clue: Paley - it's round, goes on your wrist, and u use it to tell the time. Aquinas - think 'five'

    That is very wrong.

    Teleological comes from telos which means design.

    Paley used the argument of the watch - if you find a watch on the forest floor, you'd of course presume it had a designer. Our universe is far more complex, therefore it must definitely have a designer/creator.
