Hey I thought this would be a fun little distraction from life. I commonly think about philosophical arguments for god. Usually they just pop in my head and some are actually pretty good. Feel free to add any. Also be sure to get critical and bring up problems with some of them. Lastly the goal of philosophy is to show that the existence of god can be known with reasonable certainty. Everything that has an effect has a beginning Everything with a beginning must have a cause the universe began to exist therefore the universe was created. *Note some will use the example of causeless particles that appear into existence from nothing. The problem with this is that the particles are dependent on there being physical space. inanimate objects do not will things to be created and nature cannot transcend itself Conscious minds will things to be created Therefore god created the world Laws require lawmakers the universe has laws therefore the universe had a lawmaker Opposites exist in every field and since there is a physical/natural/our universe/ existence there must be a metaphysical/natural/other universe/existence Person A "the universe is amazing and the laws of physics may not be the same everywhere." Person B "Since the laws of physics are not the same everywhere there may be a set of laws that allows for a god to exist."
