Existence of God
Introduction
In numerous arguments, God is perceived as supernatural and unfathomable by
human beings, representing the primary phases of theism. Besides, the proof of God’s
existence is embedded from two significant concepts; from experience and observation
(posteriori) or other sources apart from the observation world (priori). Importantly, as the
existence of God represents a critical representation of supernaturalism, there tend to arise
numerous to help the societies understand this concept based on diverse philosophical points.
Since there remain countless mysteries regarding the existence of God, I shall argue the
Aquinas’ argument is the philosophy’s accepted success in demonstrating the existence of
God as absolute because it makes a comprehensive account based on the rational
demonstration and sacred teachings on what we profess about God.
Aquinas establishes five critical concepts in the argument about the existence of God.
The primary arguments constructed by Aquinas define God as the unmoved mover, the God
is the first cause, all beings are contingent, degrees of goodness, and unintelligent objects are
ordered towards a specific objective. Aquinas argues that an initial mover must have initiated
the experienced motion of the universe. As a result, the movement of a particular object must
be steered by another thing, which is unmoved. Thus, another unmoved force bearer, the
God, must have initiated the movement of the universe. Aquinas establishes that the first
cause began with the premises, which are impossible to cause itself and impossible for an
infinite series of causes (Arp, 2016). Thus, there must exist an initial cause, uncaused itself.
An initial cause must be the initiator of the arising chain of causes. There is when nothing
existed since things may cease to exist. Therefore, there must be someone or a being with the
essential existence. For something to be called good, there should be a standard of goodness
that triggers all goodness. Aquinas argues that unintelligent objects are ordered towards a
