As it was discussed in the class materials, people usually learn about, discover, or prove any reality in the following 3 methods: 1. Using sensory perceptions, 2. logical inference, and 3. reliance on expert testimony of credible witnesses. Review these 3 methods in the class materials and determine which of these methods can be used for the purpose of exploring/confirming the existence of God and which methods cannot be used for that purpose. If any method can be used, explain how it can be used; and if any method cannot be used, explain why it cannot be used. Provide your explanations for each method in a separate paragraph. 1 The method of using sensory perception cannot be used because it is limited. Also using sensory perception is not enough to confirm the existence of God because Allah is infinite and He is the all-knowing. 2 The method of logical inference can be used for the purpose to explore God, because as human beings, we are always questioning ourselves about how we are created and who created the universe. The logical explanation is that Allah is the creator of everything seen and unseen, and He is different from us, and He provided us with the proof, which is the Holy Quran.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
