    Chapter 3: Philosophy of Religion. Proofs for the Existence of God. The Ontological Argument. This is the a priori argument: prior to considering the existence of the physical universe. This is reasoning without bringing in any consideration of the existence of the universe or any part of it. Hugh Hewitt's “Necessary Bookshelf” is actually six different shelves in one big bookcase.

The Necessary Bookshelf The Books That Tell You About The War We are In and Have Been In Since Books Hugh has deemed "necessary" to an understanding of the times in which we live.

      The book breaks down into several sections: the first taking on the terms of the debate over science and religion. It doesn’t provide an argument for the existence of God. But it does so.   Science can never prove or disprove the existence of God, but if we use our beliefs as an excuse to draw conclusions that scientifically, we’re not ready for, we run the grave risk of depriving.

    God to me is a mystery but is the explanation for the miracle of existence—why there is something rather than nothing. (11) Trying to avoid the clear evidence for the existence of a divine intelligence behind nature, atheist scientists are forced to ascribe creative powers to less and less credible candidates like mass/ energy and the laws. The stated aim of this book is to prove to its reader that not only does God exist, but that the Judaeo-Christian-Muslim God exists. The proofs are a little limp, the major one being that it is more reasonable and more rational to believe in God than to not believe in him/5.

In The Necessary Existence of God: The Proof of Christianity Through Presuppositional Apologetics, the reader discovers a powerful presentation defending Christian truth.

This book is very readable and simple to understand even though the author deals with some difficult ideas/5(4). The Necessary Existence of God (Classic Reprint) Paperback – July 8, by William Honyman Gillespie (Author)Author: Gillespie, William Honyman, d.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Gillespie, William Honyman, Necessary existence of God. Edinburgh, T. & T. Clark, (OCoLC) Richard Simmons’ new book “Reflections on the Existence of God” addresses the basic question of atheism versus belief in God.

Its practical and logical approach to this enduring inquiry is thoroughly researched and intelligently written/5(24). A complex book looking at the issue of proofs of God's existence very thoroughly.

The author rightly rejects a priori deductive proofs of God's existence and non existence as necessarily flawed, and thus the ontological proofs, the 5 ways etc. are all out as pure deductive proofs/5. This is the ultimate book on the evidence for God’s existence. God’s Crime Scene brilliantly lays out the case for God’s existence based on cumulative evidence from the origin of the universe, the fine-tuning of the universe, the origin of life, the design of life, our experience of consciousness, free will, and morality.

In each chapter, Detective Wallace evaluates possible explanations for these pieces of evidence, just. THE EXISTENCE OF GOD EDITED BY JOHN HICK (TEXT 12) (PUB.M ACMILLAN) (P).ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT by Ch God is conceived as "a being than which none greater can be thought", and even the non-believer can grasp that idea.

Thus God exists in the understanding, even if not in Size: KB. God and Necessity: A Defense of Classical Theism argues that the God of classical theism exists and could not fail to exist.

The book begins with the definition of key terms and analysis of the concepts of God and necessity. Extended examinations of the ontological, cosmological, and Cited by: 1. We can say that the necessary existence of being the number two (or any abstract object) causally depends on God’s having the cognitive activity that he does.

Or, perhaps we might say that the necessary existence of being the number two causally depends on God’s being omniscient, omnipotent and existing necessarily. God is what grounds the existence of every contingent thing, making it possible, sustaining it through time, unifying it, giving it actuality.

God is. The Existence of God and the Beginning of the Universe The kalam cosmological argument, by showing that the universe began to exist, demonstrates that the world is not a necessary being and, therefore, not self-explanatory with respect to its existence.

The Quinque viæ (Latin " Five Ways ") (sometimes called "five proofs") are five logical arguments regarding the existence of God summarized by the 13th-century Catholic philosopher and theologian St. Thomas Aquinas in his book Summa Theologica. More Recommended Books; My Belief in God Began with a Book Recommendation.

After over 40 years of not believing that God exists, I was dared by a Christian friend to read a book. I was surprised to find that there was scientific evidence for the existence of God. After that first book, I found other books with more scientific evidence.

The existence of such evil gives us good grounds to doubt the existence of God or to deny God’s existence, even though it doesn’t count as a strict proof.

That’s the kind of argument that an atheist would have to develop in order to get the problem of evil off the ground as an objection to theism. In these arguments they claim to demonstrate that all human experience and action (even the condition of unbelief, itself) is a proof for the existence of God, because God's existence is the necessary condition of their intelligibility.

Alvin Plantinga presents an argument for the existence of God. The existence of God is the necessary foundation of any theology. Before discussing any other topics, Aquinas needs to establish the crucial fact that God exists, since, without certainty of God’s existence, the conclusions of the rest of the Summa would be in doubt or even in vain.

The fact that contingent beings exist, i.e. beings whose non-existence is recognized as possible, implies the existence of a necessary being, who is God.

The graduated perfections of being actually existing in the universe can be understood only by comparison with an absolute standard that is also actual, i.e., an infinitely perfect Being such. God's Existence And Precision Are Evident In Nature The Bible asserts that the universe is a testimony to God's existence and precision.

The psalmist had this to say: The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork. Day unto day.

The Existence of God The philosophical arguments presented in this document are not of religious text, nor scientific observation or established fact. Rather the premise of this God proof is bring together and share the various theories on which other God proofs have established foundations.

Avicenna detailed the argument for the existence of God in three books namely Al-ShifaThe Book of Healing and Al-Nejat and Al-isharat wa al-tanbihat. it seems that for the first time applied the argument of Seddiqin. According to Muhammad Legenhausen little pay attention to Avicenna's proof of sincere.

Avicenna described the argument as seddiqin(Borhane seddiqin) because this argumentation.Other articles where Existence of God is discussed: Western philosophy: Anselm: proofs of the existence of God, all of which are based on Neoplatonic thought. The first proof moves from the awareness of a multiplicity of good things to the recognition that they all share or participate more or less in one and the same Good, which is supremely good in.First published Thu ; substantive revision Fri Moral arguments for God’s existence form a diverse family of arguments that reason from some feature of morality or the moral life to the existence of God, usually understood as a morally good creator of the universe.

Moral arguments are both important and interesting.
