The Existence of God Works Cited Not Included For centuries, the Notion of God has become part of man's history. Past and current, there has ever been a distinct integration consisting of the believers and the non-believers of God. The group of those who have "faith" in God have a tendency to be associated to one religion or another. On the flip side, the skeptics find the presence of God somewhat puzzling and try to search for the answers through scientific methods. Much of now with all the modern technology and the evolution of sciences, we still do not have a definitive answer to the question "does God exist?" Among many philosophers and scholars that have attempted to answer this query, we will look upon Rene Descartes' concept on the presence of God. In terms of believers and non-believers, Descartes would be among those believers. Before we go any farther, we have to contemplate upon a few queries. What is God? Does God exist? If these God does exist, then where does this being come from? Why do believers and non-believers hold on to their faith as they do? What significance will the existence of God have upon mankind? These are only the tip of this iceberg amongst the huge collection of unanswered questions associated with God. Though there are many uncertainties as we have just mentioned, the existence of all other uncertainties in our planet may explain the presence of God is indeed real to many people. For the believers, God provides a handy answer to all these questions except for the replies regarding God itself. The following are some of the general arguments for the existence of God. The first argument comes from the theory of design; there are orders in the world which can't be happening by mere chance. Second, the presence of God explains the arguments concerning the effective causality; since the world exhibits orderly causal sequences, something needed to start it all up. Thirdly but not the least, God provides an answer to this question of the origin of life and its destination after death. ( For the sake of convenience, we shall borrow some theological ideas from Christianity, the Christian God, to exemplify our comparisons.) As an example, God is the creator of all, and there's a spot in paradise, a kingdom of God, for people with faith in God. This helps believers understand their identity and relieve the fear of.
