Such proofs include teleological and ontological. A proof is an unquestionable, factual statement that directs an argument to the final product and is based on a level of scientific factualness. The existence of the world is no guarantee for believing in the existence of a certain being (God). The cosmological and design only offer points and arguments towards the existence of God, but the
There is a saying that “Nothing comes from Nothing but something comes from something”. We can explain the origin of the universe and the reason why it is like this if we believe in god. Existence of being greater than any of us and the rules for over all creation. It is not necessary for physical existence of god. We can say that god exists by thinking about god.
Russell first explains what a Christian is. In addition, he explains that a Christian looks nothing like what it once did two thousand years ago. In order to be a “full-blooded Christian” Russell explains in order to be a Christian you must believe in God and immortality and the most divine and intelligent being is our creator. Christians have faith in God in the form of “unaided reason” not logic or reason (Russell, pg.4-5). The first argument presented by Russell is the divinity and first cause of God is in question if something could come before God and we could have adapted to our environment rather than be a creature from design.
Everyone has a destiny that has been set by God, and everything that leads up to that fate is done by the power of God. Although, someone may say that God does not exist, they are wrong. Everyone has a destiny that is set. If God does not exist who controls what happens to you and everyone else. Who else would give people their destiny´s and help them go in the right direction.
As a counter argument it is faulty, and ultimately fails to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the traditional God exists and has an adequate reason for evil. In a court of law, the burden of proof falls onto the prosecution to prove their claim beyond a reasonable doubt while the defense counters their position by establishing some doubt. The prosecution can be seen as Craig as he claims the existence of a God, whereas Sinnott-Armstrong’s atheism only exists in relation to theism. Atheism is a response to theism but theism is an idea in itself, independent of atheism. In other words, without theism atheism would not exist, as such without a claim made by the Crown the defense is not needed.
The Cosmological Argument is an a priori argument, seeking to establish the existence of a self-existent being through the Principle of Sufficient Reason (PSR), in order to then attempt to prove that that self-existent being is the “theist God” (48). In the Cosmological Argument, philosophers argued that the world’s foundation is based on the implicit relationship we have with the world and one another. Their arguments can be epitomized below: (a) Every being (that exists or ever did exist) is either a dependent being or a self-existent being. (b) Not every being can be a dependent being. (c) Therefore, there exists a self-existing being, and that self-existing being is God.
God can exist without existence, God is everything but God is nothing, God is the highest parameter of something and also God has no parameters. We don’t have control on God and also we don’t have evidence in favour and in unfavoured of god we can only do that we can assume God or don’t. Everyone has his/her own definition of God. Did we analyse whole universe if so then did we understand outside the universe? If not then how we can say God physically not
If God exists only as an idea in the mind, then we can imagine something that is greater than God. Therefore God exists. Most of the argument for existence of God rely on at least a posteriori obligation. Ontological arguments attempt to point that we can guess God’s existence form so to speak, excellent definition of God. Anselm provided the first ontological argument for the God’s existence.
Now could Ockham’s Razor be placed against the arguments of those who believe or don’t believe in a higher being? The existence of God is something that philosophers and regular people question all the time. Two philosophers questioned the existence of God; Anslem and Aquinas. The Ontological Argument, or the argument of existence, was put out by Anslem. Anslem believed in the existence of a supreme being and proved that it was possible to believe in someone like that.
Have you ever wondered how all things in the world came to exist and why? Were they designed because there was a function that they would untimately fulfill? Sometimes, it is hard to see the underlying reasons for these creations. William Paley believed that there was someone, even bigger than a producer, that was responsible for the existence of these objects and of the universe itself. There have been many attempts to prove the existence of God using natural theology.
The first mover is understood to be God. The second proof is the argument from efficient cause. This proof explains that nothing is the efficient cause of itself and if the cause does not exist neither does the result. If the first thing in series does not exist nothing in the series exists, and therefore nothing would exist. Because we know that is false the first original cause must be God.
