    "If God did not exist, would it be necessary to invent him?" This question deals with the necessity of God himself. It asks us to imagine that there is no knowledge about any superhuman being, such as God. It makes me think about weather or not we would be inclined to want something like God. I am forced to think of how important God is in my own life, and how important God is in the rest of the world. There is no doubt in my mind, that if God did not exist, people all around the world would at ...
  • Does God Exist To Descartes
    1,067 words
    Upon cursory examination, one might assume that Rene Descartes is a non-believer in the existence of a heavenly being, a God that presides over humans and gives us faith. However, this is simply not the case Descartes is simply trying to destroy all of the uncertainties that have come about by the attempted scientific explanations of such a supreme being. For Rene Descartes and all of the other believers in the world, the existence of God provides a convenient answer to unexplained questions, wh...

Trent Reznor, from Heresy Does God exist As you can see above, even the most vile human beings acknowledge him.

    St. Thomas Aquinas: Proofs of Gods existence. Aquinas says that Gods essence (feeling) is his existence. That there is no Actual need for proof of his existence. Before he actually developed his Proofs Aquinas tried to show that such proofs are not useless, since the Idea of Gods existence is not, a probable idea-that God exists. Because Of this fact he states that every man has a natural knowledge (that which he is born with. ) of God such as: he has some ideas of happiness (since he wants/ de...

    The Existence of God The existence of a God has for generations been the topic of fierce debate. This most usually occurring between members of the religious society and, everybody else. As a matter of fact the religious world itself has not always been able to agree on God. This has resulted in many a holy man to take up the fight for his deity through the realm of words. Many theories have been proposed, and all think that theirs proves beyond a doubt on whether or not God exists. To write th...

    Role of Faith Society's investigation for adequate evidence to sustain rational belief in God may seem unsatisfactory. Throughout history, people have been appealing to reason and looking for evidence to substantiate these beliefs. However, we have not yet taken into consideration the role of faith. Perhaps belief in God should depend on faith rather than on reason or evidence. Regardless, most would insist that faith is the basis for religious belief. "To believe on faith is to believe without ...

    Does God exist Theology, cosmological, teleological and ontological arguments are all have ways to prove the existence of God. With all of these great arguments how can one deny that there is a God. There is a God and with these reasons I will prove that. There are two types of theology discussed in chapter nine of Kessler "Voices of Wisdom," revealed and natural theology. Revealed theology comes from such sources as the Bible and according to St. Thomas Aquinas gives us the knowledge for our s...

    Descartes-Meditation III In Meditation III, Descartes presents his argument for the existence of God. He makes this argument here because it is one of his stronger arguments. In this essay, I will summarize and critically assess this argument. Descartes begins this meditation with a review of what he is certain of so far. He is skeptical of the existence of bodily things, but s certain that he exists and that he is a thinking thing. He decides that he could not be as certain of his existence un...

    Does He Exist Many theories exist to explain the ongoing debate on the existence of God. Whether or not we have a belief on this subject is irrelevant. We are here today and we got here somehow. People embrace different versions of the birth of our existence. I would like to share my version and what I think about the rest of them: People grow up in different environments, families, and circumstances. Our culture nurtures beliefs and traditions from all of these factors. As a result of these fa...

    Good God When one walks through the streets of humanity, one must choose their destiny. Is it to believe in God, or to become conservative and choose not to believe? Well, the people of the world should all just creep within their minds, and choose not to follow the Messiah onto the deceptive fields of love. These people become sicken with doubt, and unleashing them are quite easy. But the world may never know, for the fools that are blinded with salvation still wander in oblivion. Objection nu...

    St. Thomas Aquinas' First Two Ways in Proving the Existence of God It is my view that God exists, and I think that Aquinas' first two ways presents a successful argument for the existence of God. No doubt, the arguments have weak points which are subjected to criticism but nonetheless, in my opinion, these propositions by Aquinas do indeed accomplish their purpose in establishing the existence of a Greatest Conceivable Being that is the unmoved mover and uncaused cause. I believe that this ultim...

    In Meditations on First Philosophy Meditations III and V Rene provides arguments for the existence of God. Arguments for the Existence of god: If he can conceive of some idea with so much objective reality that it must come from some cause with more formal reality than he possesses, the Meditator reasons that he will then know that something outside his mind exists. God is an infinite substance whereas he is only a finite substance. Since the idea of God cannot have originated in himself, he con...

    Existence of God The dilemma of the existence of God has troubled mankind for thousands of years. Many philosophers have put forth their theories in order to prove the existence of God. Most of these arguments can be termed as ontological. These arguments differ from other arguments for the existence of God since they are not based on empirical data such as the existence or nature of the universe, but are rather grounded in pure logic. First we will consider the arguments presented by Anselm. H...

    The Problem of Evil The philosopher J. L. Mackie wrote a very convincing piece on the problem of evil called "Evil and Omnipotence," in which he attempts to show that one of the following premises must be false in order for them to be consistent with each other. #1. God is omnipotent. #2. God is morally perfect. #3. Evil exists. The problem of evil is a deductive a priori argument who's goal is to prove the non-existence of God. In addition to Mackie's three main premises he also introduces som...

    In this essay I discuss why there is proof that there is a supernatural being known as God, who has created everything we know and experience. The mere claim, there could be a 'Proof for the Existence of God,' seems to invite ridicule. But not always are those right who laugh first and think later. Remember how all-knowing doctors / scientists laughed at every new discovery. They laughed when they heard for the first time about diseases that were supposedly caused by animals so tiny that you cou...

  • Logical Arguments On The Existence And Meaning Of God
    1,085 words
    The ontological argument is an argument for the existence of God. It is a reflection on the meaning of the word God; it is an a priori argument. This could be seen as a major strength of the Ontological argument it does not depend on evidence. It is what it is. For example how do we know a bear is an animal? Because as part of the definition of bear we know it is an animal, in the same way God is the definition of God. It is an analytic statement; existence is God as an animal is a bear. Theref...
