"god" is the "first (uncaused) cause "of the cosmos. it is deductive, so it is a candidate for soundness. Then the cosmological argument is the argument that the existence of the world or universe is strong evidence for the existence of a God who created it. The existence of the universe, the argument claims, stands in need of explanation, and the only adequate explanation of its existence is that it was created by God. In simple words, cosmological argument for exsitence of god is this argument was argue that the cause of those things existence had be a “god-typed” thing, argument go all the way back to Plato and have been used by notable philosophers and thelogians ever since. Besides being philosophically evident, science finally caught up with theologians in the 20th centry when it was confirmed that universe had to have had a beginning, so today, the arguments even powerful for …show more content…

For at least 3,000 years, thinkers have argued that the orderliness of the universe shows that it was made and sustained by a creator God—in other words, it was designed.

Called the Doctor Angelicus (the Angelic Doctor,) Aquinas is considered one the greatest Christian philosophers to have ever lived. In his Summa Theologiae Aquinas put forward five proofs (or five ways) for the existence of God: First Way ?Argument from Motion Second Way ?Causation of Existence Third Way ?Contingent and Necessary Objects Fourth Way ?The Argument from Degrees and Perfection Fifth Way ?The Argument from Intelligent Design. Aquinas concluded that common sense observation tells us that no object creates itself. In other words, some previous object had to create it. Aquinas believed that ultimately there must have been an UNCAUSED FIRST CAUSE (GOD) who began the chain of existence for all things. Follow the agrument this
