Humans try to find different truths.
St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) was a medieval philosopher and theologian who developed five proofs for the existence of God using reason as a basis for his argument.
What is moved must be moved by something else. There can't be an infinite series of movers. So there must be a first mover (a mover that isn't itself moved by another)
If I hit 12, then it will hit 11 and then it will hit 14 which will hit 7 and then it will hit 3 and then…side pocket!
Some things are caused, anything caused is caused by another, and there can't be an infinite series of causes. So there must be a first cause (a cause that isn't itself caused by another).
And you made me.
You made me.
Many things in the universe may either exist or not exist. Nothing can come of nothing, and if traced back eventually there must have been one thing from which all others have occurred.
Some things are greater (or cuter) than others. Whatever is great (or cute) to any degree gets its greatness (or cuteness) from that which is the greatest (cutest). So there is a greatest (cutest) being, which is the source of all greatness (cuteness).
Many things in the world that lack intelligence act for an end. Whatever acts for an end must be directed by an intelligent being. So the world must have an intelligent designer.
1. Unmoved Mover (Everything that moves, is moved by a mover. There is a point of origin)
2. First Cause (There must be something that caused all causes)
3. Dependency ( Nothing can come of nothing)
4. Degree (We can compare so that means that there must be something that is perfect with which to compare)
5. Intelligent Design (Everything serves a purpose)
