Existence is something that can be imagined and therefore is false and a fallacy. How does Descartes really know he exists maybe he is just imaging it all and that his premises behind the existence of God are fake as well. If someone exist then they must have been born which would mean that Descartes parents where the ones who brought him into existence, and their parents brought them in to existence and so on and so on. This would mean that God did not create Descartes existence but that someone way far down the chain of human existence started it
Change, motion, and even time are all just constructs of the human mind, with the purpose of aiding us in interpreting and navigating our world. Where Bertrand Russell deviates from Zeno is in determining what these views mean for the state of the world as a whole. Russell assumes Zeno would believe that world remains in the same state, and says that this interpretation is incorrect. This means that Russell believes the world can be different state to state, however it is unclear by what mechanism since he denies the universe being subject to change. A possible explanation would be that the states of the world are of
A common questioning of a higher power beyond the physical realm lingers in society: Who and what is God?. However, many of these theological questions cannot be answered until we of course, die. Due to human’s innate curiosity to understand the forces beyond their own, especially in terms of religion, humans find their own reasons to believe in a higher power in the process of discovery. Religion is a sense of belief and worship to praise a higher power (God), and it provides a guide for human beings to have the opportunity to come together and live as one image of God’s children. “Imagine There’s No Heaven” is an article in which Salman Rushdie, the author, presents an atheistic view where religion is pointless, and a higher being is non-existent.
We can say that god exists by thinking about god. As we know that for sided god triangle triangle is impossible, in the same manner non-existence of god is also impossible. If we think god is perfect and superior than everything we know then anything greater than god can’t be imagined. If we think god as not
Although there is no visual proof of a supernatural power such as God, believers are motivated by universal beliefs in things we cannot see. Why would we believe something we can’t prove or see? Also, why do people believe in something that is proven to be wrong? This is because of the willing suspension of disbelief and faith. In general, we don’t know for sure that something as God or any higher power of such has ever lived or existed, but it gives people hope and therefore religious knowledge systems still incorporate and effectively uses suspension of disbelief.
God 's existence has been a continuous debate certainly for centuries. The issue of God 's existence is debatable because of the different kind of controversies that can be raised from an "Atheist as being the non-believer of God" and a "Theist who is the believer of God". An atheist can raise different objections on the order of the universe by claiming that the science is a reason behind the perfection of the universe. In Aquinas 's fifth argument, he claims that the order of the universe cannot be explained by chance, but only by design and purpose. To explain this order of the universe he concludes that, there is an intelligent being whom we call "God".
However, is almost unachievable because we don't know how to do so. Once a philosopher witnesses the goodness where knowledge is eternal and absolute, he must return to the cave, the reality we know, to educate the prisoners and set them free so that they can locate the ultimate truth and reality too. Plato thinks that no one can
He ulrimetly comes to the conclusion that what we believe to be the real world or what we see with our eyes is not real but merely an imitation or appearance of the truth. This world is just a shadow, a reflection of an idea, which can be found in the world of ideas, and is to be reached by rational thinking. He explains this through his allegory of the cave. This methaphor fundamentally is attempting to address the questions; what is the true world and what is just an appearance of the true world? Is there a distinction between belief and knowledge?
Something’s are right while others are wrong. Ultimately all knowledge comes from God, but humans find this knowledge from experience and trial. Humans are driven by a desire for truth and this drive will eventually lead us to the answers. Some things like science and math can be found through experimentation while other knowledge like history is known through the recordings of the past. For things that are less black and white I believe seeking God is where the truth can be found.
A scientist knows only natural laws of the universe by examples, but the supernatural matters are out of their mind. These supernatural things may be issues of religion, faith, ... The irrational supernatural is often done in areas such as religion and the paranormal, areas which are based on ideas that "exceed" what humanity can truly identify, and where there is no evidence as to science. The supernatural is based heavily on subjectivity, our individual perception of an event according to our personality and our opinions, while science is a set of knowledge. So there is a contrast between the supernatural and science.
