      • First Cause Arguement
      • Everything that exists has a cause, nothing can exist without being caused, but the chain cannot go on forever, the first cause must be God

    • Morality Arguement
      • Everyone has an inbuilt sense of right and wrong,
      • Everyone shares similar morals (Murder is Bad)
      • Since everyones Morals are the same, someone must have made it like that, that person could only be God
      • God gave people a sense of guilt to stop people going against there bad morals, making everyone have good morals

      • Our Morals are moulded by society, not God

    • Experience Arguement
      • Theists who experience Miracles often believe them to be an act of God
      • Miracles Happen, therefore God exists
      • A Revelation is Gods way of acting, in the world
      • A miracle is an unexplained event that breaks the laws of nature
      • These experiences are normally personal, therefore they could simply be the product of hallucinations, wishful thinking or tricks of the mind
      • Fluke
      • Unexplainable events may one day be explained by science
