would exist now, so there must be a being that exist that is not contingent, hence God. Lastly, the teleological argument basically supports the existence of god in the idea that the universe has design, order and a purpose. This argument is based on the belief that a higher being must be a designer, and the only being that could design something as complex as the universe is God. The natural things in the world all have the appearance of design and was by no means an accident. 2) Explain in detail one of the objections (presented by one of the authors we read) against one of the main arguments for the existence of God. David Hume argues the idea of design and has many objections to the Teleological argument. One of the few is the Christian God knows how to make a perfect world and has the desire/ability to create a perfect world. However, Hume agues that the world is far from perfect and has many imperfections. He argues that the world is full of evil, disasters, terrible illnesses, and lots of things that deem the world imperfect. Hume constantly argues that we cannot draw strong conclusions from weak analogies. 3) Offer your own original argument in defense of the position you think is most reasonable. In other words, offer an argument in defense of one of the 3 main arguments for the existence of God or in defense of one of the objections against the 3 main arguments for the existence of God. I strongly agree with Aquina’s cosmological argument. I believe that his argument provides the most solid and simple explanation that our mind can handle. Obviously to everyone God is referred to always as the highest being, so it makes it very hard to believe something without solid evidence. However, I do fully agree with most of Aquina’s statements as they make very good points and definitely have me on the edge of my seat thinking.

    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.
