In the past, I’ve put together a number of resource pages that highlight some of the clearest writing and best thinking on arguments for the existence of God.
Today I’m excited to announce that another resource page has been added, this time on The Argument from Reason. The page provides links to papers, interviews, and videos from thinkers like C.S. Lewis, Victor Reppert, Angus Menuge, and Alvin Plantinga.
What is the argument from reason? Very briefly, the argument rests upon the fundamental differences between physical things and immaterial mental states. How can a neuron recognize that an argument is valid? How can the laws of physics guide a brain to rationally calculate the likelihood of evolution? How can purposeless physical processes lead a thing to intentionally choose for ‘itself’? If everything is caused by the laws of science (physics, chemistry, biology, etc.) then what does it mean for someone’s mind to be changed by a spaceless, timeless, immaterial argument?
These are the kinds of questions which The Argument From Reason addresses. I hope you’ll check out the resource page and become familiar with these thinkers and their arguments!
