Worth: 200pts Length: 1000 words min/max We’ve covered two sets of arguments concerning the existence of God • The Ontological Argument (pro: Anselm | con: Gaunilo, Aquinas, Kant) • The Design Argument (pro: Aquinas, Paley | con: Hume, Mackie) For this paper you’re asked to do three things: • All arguments should be explained in such a way that someone who had never heard of them could understand the arguments after reading your paper. When writing, imagine that you’re explaining the concepts to someone who is unfamiliar with them. • When explaining arguments and counterarguments, do so as if you agree with the positions. Even if you think the argument is wrong, don’t let that show in your explanation. You’ll have the opportunity to critique all the arguments in section (3)! Ontological Argument: Design Argument: • Remember that Hume approaches the issue in the form of a dialog. One speaker defends the design argument while another denounces it. • Hume offers 3 principle arguments against the Design argument. • Mackie’s points fit nicely with one particular criticism from Hume. Think of which one that is and incorporate it.
