    Proof of God

    Thread Arguments and Definitions

    Quote Originally Posted by Angel View Post

    1.

    1. Whatever exists, can exist. (axiom: actuality implies possibility)
    2. Whatever must exist, exists. (axiom: necessity implies actuality)
    3. Whatever must exist, can exist. (axiom: necessity implies possibility)

    4. If God exists, God must exist. (definition)

    5. Either God must exist or God must not exist. (law of thought)
    6. It is not the case that God must not exist. (negation of impossibility)
    7. Therefore, God must exist. (from 5 and 6)

    8. If God must exist, then God can exist. (from 3 and 7)
    9. If God can exist, then God exists. (from converse of definition and 1)
    10. God can exist. (from 3 and 7)
    11. Therefore God exists. (from 9 and 10)

    2.

    If God is not logically impossible, then God exists.
    God is not logically impossible.
    Therefore, God exists.

    3.

    That which is inexplicable yet rational must be attributed to inexplicable rationality.
    That which goes by the name "God" is Itself inexplicable rationality.
    Therefore, that which is inexplicable yet rational must be attributed to that which goes by the name "God."

    4.

    Order implies rationality.
    The universe is ordered.
    Therefore, the universe implies rationality

    5.

    That which is necessary to explain the existence of an otherwise inexplicable state of affairs is its ground.
    God is that which is necessary to explain the existence of an otherwise inexplicable state of affairs.
    Therefore, God is Ground.

    6.

    Angel's Empirical Argument For God

    The experience of the person I am in the world—my consciousness, my life, and the physical world in which my conscious life appears to be set—these phenomena comprise a Stupendous Given. There's no getting around them and no getting outside them and no accounting for them from within the phenomena themselves. These phenomena point to something beyond themselves. The attempt to account for these phenomena from within the phenomena themselves has given rise to science, art and religion and the whole cultural adventure we call "civilization"—the long human struggle for purchase on the Stupendous Given. In the end, however, the only account that accords with reason is the account that infers to a Stupendous Giver. In sum, from the existence of consciousness, the existence of life, and the existence of the physical universe, the inference to the best explanation is God.

    7.

    1. If God does not exist, his existence is logically impossible.

    2. If God does exist, his existence is logically necessary.

    3. Hence, either God’s existence is logically impossible or else it is logically necessary.

    4. If God’s existence is logically impossible, the concept of God is contradictory.

    5. The concept of God is not contradictory.

    6.Therefore, God’s existence is logically necessary.[/B]


    8.

    1. If the universe were eternal and its amount of energy finite, it would have reached heat death by now.

    2. The universe has not reached heat death (since there is still energy available for use).

    3. Therefore, (b) the universe had a beginning.

    4. Therefore, (c) the universe was created by a first cause (God)[/B]

    A bunch of "arguments" based on unsupported and unsupportable claims is not proof of anything
    They are all worthless

    Try applying some logic relative to the thread topic.

    "Proof of God"
    Your OP and later comments are evident as being adequate to support YOUR belief in a God for reasons YOU feel useful, and perhaps needed.

    I accept as fact that YOU believe in God.

    Your OP and all later comments have provided no new evidence of a Gods existence, and while they may appear logically sound to you they fail miserably for me.
    Illogically, you begin with an unproven/unprovable definition of a believed to exist being/entity (God) as the creator of all that exists who is believed to have existed eternally without a beginning, and then attempt to apply logic in proving such an existence to be true based on facts that ARE provably true and have been attributed to the definition of God simply because there was no other answer early beings had the means to acquire.

    Having been born in much more modern times, after great advances in technology and science, while I freely admit that no one has proven that God does not or could not exist neither has there been any evidence found needing a God for what exists.

    Your OP with changes I would apply to make it TRUE.

    1. Whatever exists, can exist.
    2. Whatever must exist, exists.
    3. Whatever must exist, can exist.
    4. If something exists, something must exist.
    5. Either something must exist or something must not exist.
    6. It is not the case that something must not exist.
    7. Therefore, something must exist.
    8. If something must exist, then something can exist.
    9. If something can exist, then something exists.
    10. Something can exist.
    11. Therefore something exists.

    That is much more correct logically, and leaves us to wonder what "something" might be.
    Obviously for some persons God fills the void for defining something, though beyond proof, while others are still open to what can be found.

    I have no need of your acceptance of the above, but it suffices for me

    Sorry about that. We're talking about "Proof of God" not much is going to make sense.
