Screen Shot 2015-04-26 at 9.39.15 PM

Dr. William Lane Craig summarizes key arguments for God’s existence at the 2014 Unbelievable? Conference in England.  The video provides some graphics making it visually interesting as well as intellectually stimulating.  It is well worth the 45 minutes to watch the presentation and then the 15 minutes of Q&A from the audience.   Craig covers seven different arguments for God’s existence in this video (two of which are original arguments):

  1. Contingency Argument
  2. Kalam Cosmological Argument
  3. The Applicability of Mathematics Argument
  4. Teleological Argument
  5. Intentional States of Consciousness Argument
  6. Moral Argument
  7. Ontological Argument

This page on my website provides more resources (video, articles, podcasts, etc.) on the existence of God.  I cover three arguments on my page titled “Does God Exist?”  They are #2, 4, and 6 above: the Cosmological Argument, the Teleological Argument, and the Moral Arguments.  In fact, I developed an acronym to help remember these three arguments.

If you can just remember GOD’s name you can remember these three arguments.

G = Good and evil

O = Origins of the universe

D = Design of the universe

The ‘g’ in God’s name stands for good and evil and is moral argument.  The ‘o’ in God’s name stands origins of the universe and is the cosmological argument.  The ‘d’ in God’s name stands for design of the universe and is the teleological argument.
