Does God Exist?

A Re-examination of the Classical Arguments for God

Richard G. Howe, PhD

An “apologetic” is a reasoned argument that provides justification for a belief, and in this essay, Richard Howe introduces some of the “classical” apologetics for God’s existence. These are lines of reasoning that go back to the Greek philosophers—the cosmological argument, the design argument, and the argument from a First Cause. But while the “type” of argument is a traditional one, Dr. Howe argues from the latest scientific data, presenting the most contemporized versions of the cosmological, design, and First-Cause arguments.
