    I've always eagerly read, listen, and disucussed this very serious matter of ultimate questions: Does God Exist? This book is well edited by Peter Kreeft. Unlike many books of this sort, Kreeft's introduction aids the reader into the debate and if one is new to the questions of philosophy, the background provided become even more by: 5. 2. From material creatures to God: the cosmological proofs The human intellect can know the existence of God, approaching him along paths that begin with the created world. There are two basic routes, one that passes through material creatures and one that passes through the human person. These paths or ways to God have been developed especially by.

    Philosophical arguments for or against God’s existence are probably some of the most evolved of all philosophical arguments. God’s existence is an ever enduring and popular philosophical problem. Several arguments claiming to attest the existence of God have been proposed throughout man’s existence.   Most people around the world believe that God exists. It can be challenging to effectively argue that God does not exist. However, scientific, historical, philosophical, and cultural evidence can all be brought into play when developing a compelling argument that God does not exist%(33).

      Thus we have the Bible, and the person of Jesus Christ, as two strong reasons arguing for the existence of God. No other religion or philosophy offers anything near to demonstrate that a God exists. Excerpt taken from Answers to Tough Questions Skeptics Ask About the Christian Faith. Josh McDowell and Don Stewart. Tyndale House Publishers,   He is the God who “calls into existence the things that do not exist” (Rom ). Not only did God create the world from nothing, he also sustains it from nothing at every point of its existence. All things were created by Christ (Col ), and all .
