They can be physical parts or concepts (similar to Plato’s idea of the forms). Two main issues come up during discussions of cosmology; how the universe was created and out of what the universe was created. In the Theogony, Hesiod has the world created out of gods that are human by nature and to create this universe the gods reproduced. Hesiod’s theories of the universe can clearly be classified as myth, since there is no scientific background for it. The philosophers to follow Hesiod moved slightly away from this.
Explain what is meant by intelligent design Intelligent design comes from the creationist teachings who's belief is that science is unconstitutional however even though it is believed the universe is created through a higher intelligent design, it does not necessarily have to be God. Creationists also believe that the story of creation from the bible is literally true and actually occurred. According to them the creation of the universe was designed through a higher being, that being God. Intelligent design is split into three smaller subsets, the first being irreducible complexity of which all objects and organisms in the universe have. Meaning they are very complex and are not able to be explained through the 'simplistic' means of natural selection and evolution theories.
Human beings were curious about how the world is like and why the whole world is created and operated. With the observations, experiences from human`s life combined with creative imaginations, the mythologies were created and developed with the religions. For examples both Greek and Biblical mythologies describes the almighty God create the human and the creatures in the world while in the Greek mythology there are more gods or goddesses than the Biblical one which has only one god. Thirdly, from the hero stories in the different mythologies there is one similarity can be reflected which is the
In his article, “On Being an Atheist,” author H. J. McCloskey claims to make a persuasive case against the existence of God without any real or practical evidence to back up his assertions. In the article, McCloskey makes reference to “proofs” rather than real, tangible “arguments” for the existence of God thus making the theists’ beliefs incredibly simplistic. With respect to the Teleological and Cosmological Arguments, McCloskey offers little to no real opposition and as far as God’s non-existence, he offers the more logical issue of the problem of evil, which does not contain any logic at all. McCloskey ends the article with the claim that there is more comfort found in not believing than believing, which is seemingly completely irreverent to an article seeking to prove that there is not a God. In the article, McCloskey overemphasizes the theists’
This evidence is consistent with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Paul eluded to this when he said that God’s invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature is clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom.1:20). Therefore, we are to worship the Creator and not the creation (1:25). But fallen man do not give God the honor and glory for all the beauty and order He designed in His wonderful universe He created.
The universe is like the watch in the sense that it has complex features that work together perfectly; therefore the universe like the watch must have been designed. Teleologist’s like Paley would argue that the only one with such power to crate the universe is God. However this argument does not demonstrate empirical evidence to God’s existence, it only concludes that there is a designer, not that he designer is God. Therefore ‘God exists’ is not an empirical hypothesis as there is no known empirical method of proving God’s existence. Secondly ‘God exists’ is not an empirical hypothesis because the knowledge
The First man was called Swayambhu Manu who was born from the kaya of Lord Brahma. With Manu being created, there´s also a feminine him created, Shatrupa the counterpart of Eve. We may think that the creation in the bible is similar to Hinduism except for the names, but there are some differences between the bible (Western) and Hindu in terms of creation. First, in the bible, God created Adam. In Hindu, Manu manifested on his own.
Quantum Mechanics and Astrophysics Prove the Existence of Multiple Universes Imagine that there were an infinite number of realities. In one, you never intended on reading this paper. In another, you were never born because of some change in events. In yet another, the rapid expansion of our universe never occurred and the earth was not subsequently formed. A repercussion of these endless possibilities is the Many-worlds interpretation which relies on quantum mechanics to explain how all possible alternate histories and futures may exist within different worlds (Everett 4).
How does God connect to the universe? He created the entire universe, does that include time and space as well? If God did create time and space, then God must have been somehow outside of both time and space. This has been the thought of philosophers from Augustine through Aquinas. So what exactly does it mean to be “timeless?” One could say that to be timeless is simply to be and exist beyond time.
According to St. Anselm in his ontological argument, he describes God as an idea or concept of which nothing greater can be conceived (Living Issues in Philosophy, page 388). In this he guides thought by arguing “If the most perfect being existed only in thought and not in reality, then it would not really be the most perfect being. One that exists in the mind and in reality would be more perfect.” Anselm concludes his theory with “no one who understands what God is; can conceive that God does not exist. (A. J. Hoober). Existence is a part of perfection.
