Portuguese to English: David Hume on the argument from design General field: Social Sciences Detailed field: Philosophy
Source text - Portuguese Cleanto afirma que, utilizando das regras de inferências, percebemos, ao analisar o mundo, que assim como há um ajuste na construção de um artefato humano - uma máquina, por exemplo -, ou seja, supõe-se uma inteligência que faça com que aquele objeto possa surgir -; do mesmo modo supõe-se que há uma inteligência, proporcional ao efeito, que seja autora do mundo, uma vez que o mundo deve ter uma causa.
Translation - English Cleanthes affirms that, making use of the rules of inference, we realize, as we analyze the world, that just like there is an adjustment in the construction of a human artifact (a machine, for example), that is, assuming an intelligence that brings that object into existence, similarly, it is assumed that there is an intelligence, proportional to the effect, which is the author of the world, since the world must have a cause.
