What would it mean to you if you could? God in Proof tells the story of those who’ve tried. Some believed they succeeded in finding the God they were looking for, while others unleashed new revolutions in thought.   You’re making a good point about all the theistic arguments, Jarl, though I think it shows, not a flaw, but simply the limits of each argument. Just as the moral argument doesn’t prove God to be omnipresent, neither does the cosmological argument show God to be morally good nor the teleological argument God to be omniscient or eternal.

    The proofs were chosen for being powerful arguments. This book gives an argument for God’s existence based on the fact that abstract ideas exist, and since they can only exist ultimately in the mind of God, then God must exist. Very few books present that argument, which adds greatly to Five Proofs. The problem of universals is covered clearly/10(1). Buy the Paperback Book God, Reason and Theistic Proofs by Stephen T.

A theistic proof that satisfies these criteria (if any such argument ever does) demonstrates the existence of God. It shows that rational people can rationally believe in the existence of God" (8). The useless proof produced above falls afoul of the second of D.'s criteria.

Chapter 1 sets the scene for this discussion, by noting how the major themes of the book provide a way of bringing together traditional natural theology, and its appeal to the theistic 'proofs', and the perspective of 'reformed epistemology', and its claim that belief in God can be 'grounded' non-inferentially in our experience of the world, or.
