A way out (perhaps): it does not follow from the fact that I will do something that I must do it (in the sense of being coerced, doing it against my will) 1) At time Tn God decides for the first time to do something. 2) If (1), then at no time before Tn did God know what his decision at Tn would be, because if he did, then he would not have decided at Tn for the first time . 3) But if he is all-knowing, then there is no time at which he does not know all truths – including truths about himself. C) So if (1) then he is not omniscient. There is a time before Tn at which he does not know something, namely what his decision (if any) at Tn would be. A posterior: how the world is; experience; factual observations; knowledge you have after the world A priori: 1 +1 = 2. Jozef Muller teaches at UF. Knowledge you have before the world. ***See First-Cause Argument in notes*** Modus Tollens: denying the consequent If P , then Q . Not Q . Therefore, not P . - Aristotle thought Universe was always here - Ontologically ulitmate cause: original copies copies copies ; implies that if there was no God you wouldn’t exist

    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.
