    God: The Existence Of God

    • 1002 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The Existence of God The question of whether God exists or not is a difficult question to answer because there is no definite proof to prove He exists. It has been such a controversial topic that to this day there is still no universally accepted answer. A scientific point of view and a religious point of view, both have their own reasons and speculations and although some points are mutually accepted, there is no mutual answer to this question. A great majority in the scientific side will believe God does not exist while the religious side disagrees and vice versa as long as both sides have no solid proof. By a solid proof, I mean something where people can clearly see that it is in fact proof of God’s existence. Words, speculations, and…

    Descartes Existence Of God

    • 6 Pages

    I think that if 'cogito ergo sum ' is the foundation of Descartes ' project in the Meditations, the existence of God is the cornerstone that joins the internal and the external world, making knowledge possible beyond the sole account of the self. Therefore, God 's existence has a major role in the overall argument - it is that which enables the thinker to take the first steps towards the 'unification of sciences '. However, in my opinion, it is not employed correctly, as Descartes, in…

    The argument for the existence of God will always give rise to infinitive points of view. St. Anselm (c. 1033- April 21, 1109) was distinguished philosopher, scholar, theologian and an Italian monk who later went on to become the Archbishop of Canterbury. His thinking and writings about God and the disposition of faith has influenced and fascinated scholars and philosophers since the Middle Ages—some would even say he is the most important Christian thinker of the 11th century. In his highly…

    In units four though six, each philosopher mentioned has reasoning for why God may or may not exist. In this paper, I will argue that God as an omnipresent being does in fact exist. There have always been philosophers questioning God’s existence, however the only one true argument against God’s existence is evil. They ask how can there be evil in the world if God is all-good, all-knowing, and all-powerful? I will now give a few points that prove God’s existence. Maybe Start by Explaining…

    how our world began and if there exists a greater being. In this essay I will be examining the arguments surrounding the existence of God. There are three main arguments that hope to establish the existence of God, such as, the Ontological, Cosmological, and Teleological arguments, and in this essay I will analyze each, and point out which one has the greatest chance at being convincing. In Anselm’s Ontological Argument, he plans to establish, that there is a God, purely from his definition of…

    The Teleological Argument for the Existence of God, also known as “Arguments from Design”, states that a designer must exist because the universe and living things exhibit marks of design in their order, consistency, unity, and pattern, and that designer is God. One of the analogies used for this argument is William Paley’s Watch Maker Argument. He gives the scenario: if you were to find a watch in an open field you would automatically assume that it was designed and did not just randomly…

    Existence of God due to Efficient Causes Gods have been worshiped by many cultures throughout the entirety of human existence. Gods are seen as saviors, and every culture around the world maintains their own interpretation of God. Just like Gods have been idolized, they have also been questioned. Many philosophers throughout history have debated the question of whether God exists. In his paper The Existence of God, Thomas Aquinas claims that God exists because he is the first efficient cause of…

    that seek to explain life apart from God’s involvement. Such as, cosmological and teleological arguments. “In light of these, H.J McCloskey composed an article entitled "On Being an Atheist" in which he says these contentions are false and contends that without complete evidences, we should expel the possibility of God totally and his primary complaint to the possibility of God is the nearness of underhandedness in the world” His approach does not actually deny the existence of God , but allows…

    intriguing arguments for the existence of God. I am going to outline the three arguments and provide my opinion over them in form of criticism, like requested. In his first argument, Descartes has an idea that everything has a cause, and that his idea of God being an infinitely perfect being has a cause because Descartes, himself, does not believe he is infinitely perfect. He believes that he could not have an idea of their being an infinitely perfect person unless there actually is. Therefore,…
