Topic 5 – Philosophy & Science point to MONO-Theism

-------------------------------------------------

 

P501. In addition, there are multiple Philosophical arguments that point to a SINGLE God (monotheism) rather than a Multiplicity of gods (polytheism).

 

P502. The Argument from Necessary Being points to ONE God, not a multiplicity of Gods. That is because the moment there are multiple gods, the arrangement (or relationships among) those gods become contingent (they are not necessary). So, a multiplicity of gods becomes Contingent, rather than Necessary Being. This points to Monotheism rather than polytheism.

 

P503. Ockham’s Razor argues for ONE God rather than a multiplicity of gods. If ONE God will explain all of reality, we do not need to postulate a multiplicity of gods to explain that same reality. So, this points to Monotheism rather than polytheism.

 

P504. In addition, we find that Ockham’s Razor is amazingly effective in describing Reality. This is an indication of a deep underlying unity in reality. This is a reasonable expectation if reality was created by ONE God rather than by a bunch of independent gods. So, this points to Monotheism rather than polytheism.

 

P505. In addition, we find a deep underlying unity in reality (through science that shows uniform natural laws that operate throughout reality). This is a reasonable expectation if reality was created by ONE God rather than by a bunch of independent gods. So, this points to Monotheism rather than polytheism.

 

………………………………….

C501. These evidences point to the existence of a SINGLE God that created the Universe, rather than a whole bunch of separate Gods.
