 Post subject: Kreeft and Aquina's views ont he existence of God
PostPosted: Sat Jun 04, 2005 6:21 pm 
attached to this post is a rough draft of my paper for religion class. It is on the topic of God's existence and i researched Aquina's Five Ways and Peter Kreeft's arguments. Just wondering if my paper was correctly following their views.

Two points:

1) Motion in the First Way is not simply physical motion, but any change from potentiality to actuality.

2) Your presentation of the Third Way is dangerously incomplete. If it were possible for things either to exist or not to exist, and if they have had an infinite amount of time to pass out of existence (which they must have if there was no creation), then everything would have fallen out of existence long ago. But things do still exist, and therefore there must be something that holds them in existence.

Can Aquinas' Five Ways and Kreefts arguments be found in one (or one each) book? Which one?
