  • Theological Argument
    • Aquinas
      • The 5th Way
        • Things that lack knowledge cannot achieve anything unless directed by a thing with knowledge
        • There is therefore an intelligent being that directs everyone towards a purpose
        • This suggests there is a being which links all beings
        • All natural occurrences show evidence of design
        • For Aquinas, this being is God
    • Telos
      • The Telelogical argument therefore argues that the universe is being directed towards an end purpose
      • also it argues the posteriori evidence of an apparent intelligent designer in the world implies the existence of an intelligent designer
      • The word Telos is Greek for purpose
