    Georg Brow Professor Jovanovski Phi-101 5/8/13 The Existence of God‚ and which God Does Existence The existence of God is a subject matter that most people want to know the answer to. Many great philosophers have debated about this subject for generations. Feuerbach has an interesting point of view about the subject matter.

  • Gods Existence

    The belief in the Christian Gods existence has been a controversial issue for a very long time. The Holy Bible is a lot of things to a lot of people. To some‚ the Bible is a self-contradictory book about cultures from the distant past. Others‚ such as Christians‚ believe that it is a guide on how to live their daily lives and it is a source of inspiration. I personally believe that the existence of God is nonsensical. "If the truth is that ugly - which it is - then we do have to be careful about

  • The Existence of God

    nature is even more intricate. With this in mind‚ nature must have a designer because everything regarding nature is complex and it is very unlikely to be created without contrivance. Convincingly‚ Paley came up with the notion that there must be a God or transcendent being that created the universe‚ as well as all of the nature within it due to the fact that it seems implausible for something so complex to have been created with no thought or planning. In chapter eight‚ Pascal writes‚ “…for nothing

  • Existence of God

    Existence of God The question as to the fact on whether or not God exists or ceases to exist has been one of the most debated. Human beings find it necessary to prove the existence of God so that we can give meaning to life. People that disprove his existence do so because they find meaning elsewhere‚ such as in evolution. A person can believe and have faith in God‚ but as to whether or not his existence can be proven lays the argument between theists and atheists. The philosophers discussed believe

  • Existence of God and Evil

    The Existence of Evil and God In this paper I will argue that the existence of evil does not prove that a God does not exist. For many people the existence of evil and suffering is their number one objection to the existence of God. At times the evil that we see is so pointless. The evil in our world is of such an unspeakable nature that it is difficult at times to fathom what possible purpose could it serve. It is difficult for us to understand why God would allow some things to happen‚

  • Free Will and the Existence of God

    that they make their own decisions‚ because God gives us free will. Yet in the assumption of the fact that God gave us free will‚ there is a logical disconnect that most people ignore. How can God exist in a world where we can change the outcome of a situation in a way that is unpredictable to God? It is my stipulation that the Judeo-Christian view of an omnipotent God and free will cannot exist together. Additionally‚ the believe in an omnipotent God necessarily affirms the concepts of fate‚ while

  • Philosophy (the Existence of God)

    my essay I decided to take on the second and third topics. I’ll first address and examine Anselm’s ontological argument for the existence of God while restating and critically examining Aquinas’s first argument for the existence of God. After I finish with that topic I will then take on Paley and his argument and whether or not it thoroughly proves the existence of God conceived as a supremely perfect being and why or why not this is. During this topic I will bring in Dawkins’ and Hume’s criticisms

  • Existence of God Arguments

    Aquinas’ Five Proofs What real evidence can be supplied for God’s existence? St. Thomas‚ in his Summa Theologica‚ sets forth five separate proofs for the existence of God‚ Unlike St. Anselm’s proof‚ which deals with pure concepts‚ St. Thomas’ proofs rely on the world of our experience-what we can see around us. In these proofs we can easily see the influence of Aristotle and his doctrine of the Four Causes.  l) The Proof from Motion. We observe motion all around us. Whatever is in motion now
