There's no such thing. There's logical arguments, period.
Putting religion into it doesn't magically make it it's own category of arguments that's immune from scientific and/or logical criticisms.

The point is that Paley was making a religious argument for the existence of God.

I just explained to you there's no such thing.
What the fuck is a religious argument?

A religious interpetation =/= a religious argument.
