Arguments for the existence of God

Quick revise

These arguments can be broadly grouped into:

  • arguments that are based on experience (a posteriori arguments) - the cosmological, teleological (or design) arguments and the argument from Religious Experience;
  • arguments that are based on no prior experience but on logic alone (a priori arguments) - the ontological argument; and
  • moral arguments, which are less easy to classify one way or the other.
