Teleological argument is grounded in experience and therefore it is understandable even to a non-philosopher. This argument rests on the fact that the world is ordered, and interpreting the universe as an artefact or machine necessary points to his Creator. The main problem of this argument lies in irresistible analogy between universe and an artefact. But teleological argument, in spite of its serious logical and epistemological errors, has its value in giving the answers to the most important philosophical questions, which could not be released from theological implications and meaning.
