For centuries, the idea of God has been a part of man's history.
present, there has always been a different integration consisting of the.
believers and the non-believers of God. The group of those who have "faith" in.
God tend to be related to one religion or another. On the other hand, the.
skeptics find the existence of God somewhat puzzling and try to seek the answers.
through scientific methods. Even as of today with all the modern technologies.
and the development of sciences, we still do not have a definitive answer to the.
question "does God exist?".
Among many philosophers and scholars who have tried to answer this question,.
we shall look upon Rene Descartes' theory on the existence of God. In terms of.
believers and non-believers, Descartes would be one of the believers. Before we.
go any further, we must ponder upon several questions. What is God? Does God.
exist? If such God does exist, then where does this being come from? Why do.
believers and non-believers hold on to their beliefs as they do? What.
significance does the existence of God have upon mankind? These are only the.
tip of the iceberg amongst the vast array of unanswered questions related to God.
Though there are so many uncertainties as we have just mentioned, the.
existence of all other uncertainties in our world may explain why the existence.
of God is so real to many people. For the believers, God provides a convenient.
answer to all these questions except for the answers regarding God itself. The.
following are some of the general arguments for the existence of God.
The first argument comes from the theory of design; there are orders in the.
universe which can't be occurring by mere chance. Secondly, the existence of.
God explains the arguments regarding the efficient causality; as the world.
exhibits orderly causal sequences, something had to start it all up. Thirdly.
but not the least, God provides an answer to the question of the origin of life.
