  • Immanuel Kant
    • Examined the argument of the existence of a supreme being as a first cause of the universe
      • the idea that every event must have a first cause only applied to the world of sense ecperience
        • it cannot apply to something that we haven't experienced
    • He didn't accept any justification for the conclusion that God caused the universe to begin
      • it is not valid to extend the knowledge that we posses to questions that transcend our experience
    • God would be a casual being outside space and time as we understand it
      • There fore it would be impossible to have any knowledge of what god created or of god himself
    • transcendent idealist - all arguments are speculative
