Cosmological vs. Ontological

horsehead-nebula-11081_1280Previously I discussed the three required elements used to define God, as well as the design argument, which is used to affirm God’s existence in The Power of Three. The attached is a continuation of that discussion but outlines other types of arguments used for affirming existence–namely, the cosmological (St. Thomas Aquinas being the most well-known proponent) and ontological arguments.

Again, neither of these arguments convince me, based on the merits of their arguments alone, that God exists. But, in the words of the Reading Rainbow guy, LaVar Burton, “you don’t have to take my word for it.”

Cosmological vs. Ontological

Sleep tight for me, I’m gone.
