Arguments for God's Existence

Arguments for God's Existence
A dictionary definition of God is a being conceived of as supernatural, immortal, and having special powers over the lives and affairs of people and nature. Along with many other individuals throughout the world, believe in the existence of higher human being otherwise known as God. Therefore I am defending the existence of God. There are really only two arguments in favor of the existence of God. One comes from reason and the other from experience. The argument from reason is an ontological argument. It is based upon the assumption that something had to create all that is around us. The idea that god is the most perfect being imaginable. The arguments from experience are based upon one of several approaches.
These include Teleological, Cosmological, and the moral argument. The teleological argument is based upon a different type of assumption, namely that science has shown us the universe is an orderly design, not confusion and chaos. This argument is based upon the results of our experience. I believe that in order for something or someone to exist there has to be a creator. For whatever the item maybe wither it?s a house or a watch, the existence of a carpenter or a watchmaker had to be present at some point in time. Like Voltaire then said "but if the universe does not prove the existence of a great Architect (God), then I consent to be called a fool." I as well can be called a fool, due to the fact that I believe that this statement makes perfect sense, due to the fact that someone supernatural and having special powers is the only being capable of making this universe. There are several famous arguments for the existence of God. The argument from the First Cause maintains that since in the world every effect has its cause behind it, the first effect in the world must have had its cause, which was in itself both cause and effect. The cosmological argument maintains that since the world, and all that is in it seems to have no necessary or absolute existence, an independent existence (God) must be disguised for the world as the explanation of its relations. The teleological argument maintains that, since from a complete view of nature and the world everything seems to exist according to a certain great plan, a planner (God) must be postulated. The ontological argument maintains that since the human conception of God is the highest conception humanly possible and since the highest conception humanly possible must have existence as one attribute, God must exist. Immanuel Kant believed that he refuted these arguments by showing that existence is no part of the content of an idea. This principle has become very important in current philosophy, particularly in existentialism. The consensus among theologians is that the existence of God must in some way be accepted on faith.
