Study Notes

Evidence for God

  • The Wonder of Creation

    • The Wonder of the Very Small

  • Philosophical Reflection

Cosmological Argument
The universe must have been caused by some agent that was neither part of the universe nor itself was caused.

Design Argument
When we observe nature, whether on a tiny scale or on a grand scale, we can see evidence of precision and intentionality from which we can infer there must be an intelligence behind it all.

Moral Argument
The moral argument says that moral values must be objective and universal to make any sense, and if moral values are objective, the source must be a transcendent, personal being.
