Arguments for the existence of God.

ARGUMENT FROM CAUSALITY

1.Everything which had a beginning had a cause.
2.The Universe had a beginning.
3.Therefore, the Universe was caused.


ARGUMENT FROM COMPLEXITY

1. The more complex something is,the more likely it is a product of design.
2. Biological complexity is more complex than all man-made design.
3.Therefore,biological complexity is a product of design.


ARGUMENT FROM FINETUNING.

1. The universe is finely tuned to permit life.
2. The Finetuning is either due to chance,necessity or design.
3. Finetuning is not due to chance or necessity. Therefore,finetuning is due to design.



ARGUMENT FROM THE LAWS OF NATURE

1.Laws require a lawgiver.
2.The universe is governed by laws.
3.Therefore,the laws of nature require a lawgiver.


ARGUMENT FROM THE RELIABILITY OF OUR COGNITIVE FACULTIES.

1. Our cognitive faculties can only be reliable if they were actually designed.
2. Our cognitive faculties are reliable.
3.Therefore,our cognitive faculties were designed.



ARGUMENT FROM LOGIC.

1.Objective logic cannot be based on our subjective minds,a non-static universe or immaterial abstractions outside of a mind.
2.Objective logic exists.
3.Therefore,objective logic is not based on our subjective minds,a non-static universe or immaterial abstractions outside of a mind.



ARGUMENT FROM FREE WILL.

1.Free will cannot be the result of mere chemical reactions.
2.We have free will.
3.Our free will began at some point.



ARGUMENT FROM MATHEMATICS

1.Evidence for design within mathematics would point to a teleological source of mathematics.
2.There is evidence for design within mathematics.
3.Therefore,there is a teleological source of mathematics.



ARGUMENT FROM MORALITY

1. If objective moral values exist,then God exists.
2. Objective moral values exist.
3.Therefore,God exists.



ARGUMENT FROM CONTINGENCY.

1.The universe has an explanation of its own existence (either by the necessity of its own nature or by an external cause).
2.The universe cannot be explained by the necessity of its own nature.
3.Therefore,the universe can only be explained by an external cause.



ARGUMENT FROM THE HISTORICAL EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION.

1.The resurrection would be evidence for God.
2.The resurrection occurred.
3.Therefore,the resurrection is evidence for God.



ARGUMENT FROM BIBLICAL FOREKNOWLEDGE.

1.Biblical foreknowledge would be evidence for God.
2.The bible contains foreknowledge.
3.Therefore,biblical foreknowledge is evidence for God.

2 Questions Evolution can't answer on Mon Dec 02, 2013 4:29 am

http://creation.com/images/pdfs/flyers/15-questions-for-evolutionists-s.pdf

Which came first? Male or Female?
Why is an unproven theory used as fact?

http://www.conservapedia.com/Question_evolution!_campaign


How did the DNA code originate? The code is a sophisticated language system with letters and words where the meaning of the words is unrelated to the chemical properties of the letters—just as the information on this page is not a product of the chemical properties of the ink (or pixels on a screen). What other coding system has existed without intelligent design?

How could such errors (mutations) create 3 billion letters of DNA information to change a microbe into a microbiologist? How can scrambling existing DNA information create a new biochemical pathway or nano-machines?

Why is natural selection taught as ‘evolution’ as if it explains the origin of the diversity of life?

How did new biochemical pathways, which involve multiple enzymes working together in sequence, originate?

Living things look like they were designed, so how do evolutionists know that they were not designed? Why should science be restricted to naturalistic causes rather than logical causes?

How did multi-cellular life originate?

How did sex originate?

Why are the (expected) countless millions of transitional fossils missing?

How do ‘living fossils’ remain unchanged over supposed hundreds of millions of years?

How did blind chemistry create mind/intelligence, meaning, altruism and morality?

Why is evolutionary ‘just-so’ story-telling tolerated?

Where are the scientific breakthroughs due to evolution? Why do schools and universities teach evolution so dogmatically, stealing time from experimental biology that so benefits humankind?

Why is evolution, a theory about history, taught as if it is the same as this operational science?

Why is a fundamentally religious idea, a dogmatic belief system that fails to explain the evidence, taught in science classes? If “you can’t teach religion in science classes”, why is evolution taught?

Questions for proponents of naturalism

General Theory of Evolution

What is the best evidence that shows that the general theory of evolution is actually a fact? ( show change beyond simple variation within a population)

Science is supposed to be objective and unbiased. So, what justifies an atheistic (naturalistic) bias in science over an agnostic approach that allows for the possibility of natural or supernatural origin?

Origin of the Universe

What specific evidence supports the claim of a natural origin of the universe?

Explain how something can come from nothing in contradiction to the first law of thermodynamics.

The universe is experiencing heat death as predicted by the second law of thermodynamics. So how do proponents of naturalism justify proposing that energy always existed and had no beginning?

What is the evidence that the universe increased in its order and complexity after the big bang in contradiction to the second law of thermodynamics.
Origin of Life

What specific evidence supports the claim of a natural origin of life? (life from non-life in contradiction to the law of biogenesis)

What is the scientific justification to study abiogenesis in contradiction to the law of biogenesis?

If life could spontaneously exist by chance, then why have scientists not been able to create life in the laboratory with controlled experiments? Likewise, if scientists cannot succeed in creating life in the laboratory, then what evidence is there that life could create itself by chance?

What evidence justifies the evolution proposal that life spontaneously arose from non-living material in spite of the calculations showing that such occurrence is astronomically improbable ?

By what means did the code of life and the enzymes necessary to make the code originate? Which came first: the code to make the enzymes or the enzymes to make the code?

Origin of Species

What fossil evidence exists showing the evolution of one major kind of organism into another? ( one taxon "order" becoming another)

If cars and non-related organisms can show similarity, what is the basis for inferring that homologous phenotypes represent phylogeny?

What evidence is there that mutation can or has produced unique, new structures rather than modified features?

What is the evidence that shows that mutations can supply an increase new information rather than just modifying existing genetic information?

What evidence suggests that mutation and natural selection changes have no limits?

What evidence shows a transitional form with partially developed, nonfunctional features (such as 10% of a wing)?

Why have new body plans not developed since the Cambrian explosion?

If fifty years of intensive research on mutant fruit flies has produced nothing but more fruit flies, why is it thought that other organisms can evolve into something else?

Intelligent Design

Why does Venus rotate backward, while Uranus rotates at a 98 degree angle to its vertical plane?

Why do 11 (almost 1/3) of the moons of various planets rotate backward?

Why aren't most of the planets composed of hydrogen and helium like the sun?
