Abstract

Understanding the concept of God is crucial in delving into philosophical theism. In this article I'll discuss the ontological argument, the cosmological argument, the argument from morality, and somebasic criticisms. I won’t go too much into the more religious aspects of theism (such as specific religious beliefs of God, e.g. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), only the philosophical. The idea of God falls into the realm of philosophy known as philosophy of religion. Various ideas of God and deities have been put forth, but this web page will deal mainly with God as a Supreme Being. Below are the attributes often attributed to such a being:
