Philosophy- Does God exist

...God. Therefore, God exists. For many years, I was convinced of Aquinas’ argument until I learned of a philosopher who was quite skeptical of Aquinas’ ways. His name is David Hume. Hume was an empiricist who accepted the senses as the source of knowledge. He formulated his empiricist principle based on what we can know through our senses alone. Thus, metaphysical notions such as “God” are, for Hume, imaginary fictions of our minds, due to our notion of cause and effect. Therefore, the idea of a God is meaningless for Hume. “So God does not exist?” Asked my friend. “Hume does not think that should be the question to ask. But rather, is man capable of knowing... .

...Does God Exist The existence of God had been accepted as the truth for many centuries before doubts crept into people’s minds. Nearly every nation of people on earth had a concept of a powerful being or a group of powerful beings with abilities which are attributed to the God worshiped in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Even Aristotle simply accepted the God as the first cause of everything else (Wikipedia, 2006). However, by the 17th and 19th centuries there was a lot of debate on the existence of God and his influence on the lives of humans. One of the reasons for this was that the...

...DOES GOD EXIST By Tina Kerr Introduction. One of the most debated topics throughout history has been the existence of God. An eternal, all-good and almighty being appears to be a hard concept to grasp. There are arguments for and against the existence of God. The purpose of this paper is to address this question, by examining the work of Thomas Aquinas. The paper will critically analyze this argument by addressing Aquinas' reasons for God's existence and objections to God's existence as provided in his text, Summa Theologie.

Skeptics have often enquired; If God is all knowing all powerful and all good as most religions tend to believe, then it translates there should be no evil in the world because he would be able and willing to prevent its occurrence. Conversely, believers claim that despite his possession of the above attributes, he has given humanity freedom of choice, which would be moot, if he were to exercise these powers over them.

...God wants to build our faith he has to break us down. This breaking down of oneself is how we continually understand that we must depend on Christ for all things. Mercy is another wonderful moral attribute of God. God's mercy is not achieved by human efforts, (Romans 9:16) "It does not, therefore, depend on man's desire or effort, but on God's mercy." There also is an analogy in Romans concerning the Potter referring to God and the clay referring to man (Romans 9:21).

...God as depicted in the stories of the creation of the world, the beginnings of history, Cain and Abel: the first murder, the flood, the tower of Babel, Abraham and Isaac, Joseph and brothers, and Moses and the exodus in the book of Genesis.
