Props to Philosophy Today for publishing William Lane Craig's essay "Does God Exist?" Bill is a brilliant philosopher. He gets malaprops from Internet atheists who lack cognitive access to Bill's arguments. If you are reading this it is a 99.9999% certainty that Bill is smarter than you (and me, too). So it's simply sophomoric to dismiss him. Actually, it's sophomoric to dismiss anyone or anything you can't understand.
Bill gives 8 reasons to support God's existence. Read the essay for explanation. They are:
- God is the best explanation why anything at all exists.
- God is the best explanation of the origin of the universe.
- God is the best explanation of the applicability of mathematics to the physical world.
- God is the best explanation of the fine-tuning of the universe for intelligent life.
- God is the best explanation of intentional states of consciousness.
- God is the best explanation of objective moral values and duties.
- The very possibility of God’s existence implies that God exists.
- God can be personally known and experienced.
