Arguments for Gods Existence. God is typically defined as a supernatural entity that is omnipotent, omniscient and omnibenevolent.
Its existence has been commonly debated over the centuries, consequently provoking a plethora of different arguments. A classic example is the ‘Teleological Argument’ the earliest account of which came from Cicero, a Roman orator when he stated “What could be more clear or obvious when we look up to the sky and contemplate the heavens, than that there is some divinity or superior intelligence?” An a posteriori, proponents conclude from observation that the existence of God is the only plausible explanation for the highly sophisticated design and purposiveness of the natural world.

Cosmological argument. The argument from first cause, also referred to as the cosmological argument for God, says that for logical reasons the universe must have a cause, and that this first cause is God.
 Argument structure The argument from first cause proceeds as follows. Everything that comes into being must have a cause. This is determined from both observation and the logic behind causality. Everything that is observed in the universe has some form of cause behind it and this forms the basis of conservation of momentum and energy. The Ontological Argument Sucks. Arguments For God: The Cosmological Argument. The agnostic believer » Alethian Worldview. Those who sincerely attempt to reconcile Christianity with fact and reason eventually discover, if they persist, that the Gospel is not consistent with unbiased objective truth, as I can testify from personal experience.

She was the winner of the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize, was beatified and is well on her way to becoming a saint, and she’s universally admired. As Wikipedia notes: [She was] named 18 times in the yearly Gallup’s most admired man and woman poll as one of the ten women around the world that Americans admired most.

The argument from design, also known as the teleological argument, is an argument for the existence of God that may be summarized as follows: When I see a complex object such as a watch, I know it has been designed: therefore, when I see a complex object such as a tiger, I should infer that it has been designed.
This act of comparing two objects and drawing similar conclusions based on similarities (while ignoring important differences) is a prime example of a false analogy.  History It is commonplace to associate the argument from design with William Paley, so much so that it is often referred to as "Paley's argument" (or "Paley's watch").
