Topic Notes


  • The Teleological Argument – Probably the oldest and most popular argument for God’s existence:
    1. All designs imply a designer
    2. There is great design in the Universe
    3. Therefore, there must be a Great Designer of the Universe
  • Aristotle and Plato (not Christians, but genius philosophers) believed in God or gods.
  • They said there was some kind of INTELLIGENT MIND who designed the Universe.
  • According to Aristotle, philosophy begins with a sense of wonder about the world.
  • This is where modern science came from – a sense of wonder.
  • But it is also where a realization of God’s existence can come from.
