Can anyone help me with some information regarding ‘proof’ of God’s existence?
I am discussing the mathematical probability of creation being random vs. intelligent design. I recall reading that the probability for random creation is so high as to make it’s liklihood prohibitive. Can anyone direct me to some internet sources giving the figures and discussion? Anyone have any interesting facts and figures in this regard?
I am also interested in information reading the ontological argument used by St. Anselm. I understand that this was addressed by St. Thomas Aquinas who debunked the argument so effectively that it was dropped as a tactic for some considerable time. Does anyone have enough familiarity with the works of St. Thomas to know what Aquinas said about it and what he used instead? What in summary was the ontological arguments’ strengths and weaknesses? How does St. Anselms version differ from Descartes?
Finally, does anyone know any other good arguments that have been used?
