C.S. Lewis felt that the aesthetic argument for the existence of God – that there is no sufficient explanation for our appreciation for beauty and its expressions in nature, art and beauty—had a real and probably unanswerable weight of evidence. He deeply appreciated the lectures of Arthur Balfour, one time Prime Minister of Great Britain, and convinced Christian, which set forth this argument in a pretty much unanswered way. So, the argument for an intelligent and purposeful Creator has not only a mechanical and structural aspect – irreducible complexity in living things – but also an aesthetic aspect – his intricate artisanship and attention to detail and beauty, such as we see here.
