Video Overview: The purpose of The Design Argument For The Existence of God is to introduce the beginning student to one of the most popular arguments for God’s existence.
The goal here was to make a learning program that teaches total beginners how to give a sound philosophical case for the existence of God.
The aim of this course is to show you that knowing the existence of God is NOT irrational and it is NOT based on blind faith.
On the contrary, the claim that God exists is a conclusion that the human intellect can reach through reason apart from the gift of faith.
Discover why when we look at the universe with an open mind and follow the evidence wherever it leads, we are led to the rational conclusion that the work of nature is the work of intelligence.
Today, More Than Ever, It Is Very Important For People Who Have Faith To Seek Understanding.
The sad truth is that people who attend church are never shown these arguments.
University students are never shown these arguments either (at least not fairly anyway).
And so the result is that most people "assume" there aren't any good reasons for thinking that God exists.
And THAT is precisely the problem.
One of the reasons religion is so despised today is because a lot of people think belief in God has no rational foundation.
And there is a desperate need to reverse this trend.
That’s what this course is about.
We want to revive these old arguments for the existence of God, broadcast them to the world, and get them into the hands of everyday believers like you so that others can see why belief in the existence of God is very reasonable.
Finally, A Course In Good Old "Common Sense" Philosophy For Beginners
Commonly known as the "teleological argument" in philosophy, this video set is designed to teach you things like…
Learn why the work of nature is the work of intelligence
Learn what a good design argument for God’s existence is and the best ways to articulate it .
Learn what the term "order" really means and why various types of order pervade the entire universe in things both big and small.
Discover what "chance" really is and why chance cannot be the explanation for the order in nature
Learn why St. Thomas Aquinas' philosophy of final causality shows that there must be a Mind behind all of the order we see in nature.
How to counter common objections to the design argument
The focus of this course is on the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the greatest minds in the history of the world.
It’s reasons like these that explain why the design argument has been a favorite old standby for centuries and a proven classic for intellectuals who want to make a rational case for God’s existence.
