Transcript of Existence of God

God By Grant Ekstrom In this Presentation I will describe the arguments for and against god's existence. The first argument I like to explain is the free will argument. Do we have free will? For all of you who just answered yes you have openly admitted you do not believe in a omipotent god..... Here's why. The definition of omnipotent is as follows;
almighty or infinite in power.
This means an omnipotent god can do anything and knows everything. That is exactly where the problem arises. If a being knows all, he knows what happened in the past but he also knows what will happen in the future. If god already knows what is going to happen in the future then the future is planned. If the future is already planned than we dont have free will. This argument can lead to two conclusions, either there is no omnipotent god or we dont have free will. I will let you decide. Arguments The second argument I like to explain is less practical then the "free will argument". This argument is more thought provoking than practical. It is called the stone paradox. Well here is goes. "Can god create a stone so heavy that he cannot lift it?". Sounds pretty simple, eh? Well that's because it is. There are only two answers this question, yes or no. Lets pretend the answer says yes. He is saying yes that god cannot lift something. Therefore god is unable to do something. Therfore god is not omnipotent. Now let's pretend the answerer says no. Then he is saying that god cannot create something. Therefore god can not do something so he is not omnipotent. This means that no matter what way you answer this question you always disprove an omnipotent's god existence. Sadly, this argument can be easily overcome with a little thought (cough cough, Martin). Now I know what you are probaly thinking right now.
"Okay I have heard enough against god arguments,
what about the for god arguments".
Well, merry christmas! It is called the morality argument. It is basically saying that without god why would human's have morals. Such as why do people feel bad when they kill someone. To some people they think the only logical answer would be god which would in theory prove his existence. This leads my last a2wsx This leads me to my last and final argument, "the argument of evil". This is the counterexample for my last argument. It is almost self explanatory, if there is a god and he can control everything than why is there evil in the word such as murderers and the like. That argument although simple is very thought provoking. This was the main argument I used before I did this research. Since the begginning and the end of my project have your views changed at all? I know mine definantly have not, this project has just reassured my views. The End
