For much of time people have questioned the existence of God. This question understands God as ‘Supreme Being and Creator of the Universe’, not a specific God (Christian, Islamic, Jewish, or other), and explores the various positions and arguments for and against the existence.
The belief that at least one deity exists
Without a God to define an absolute standard of right and wrong, morality would be relative
A superlative being must exist, by definition
This is the belief that the personal feeling of 'awe' is proof of the existence of God.
The Universe should have had a beginning, and a basal being whom we call God accounts for it.
Also known as "teleological". The complexity and beauty of the world could not have come about randomly, but only by of an intelligent being.
We don't or can't know whether deities exist. Compatible with either weak theism or weak atheism.
The Argument from Incomprehensibility
Knowledge of God’s existence is unattainable because evidence of God’s existence is unattainable.
The Argument from Uncertainty
Knowledge of God’s existence is unattainable because no evidence could ever justify religious belief
Disbelief in the existence of deities.
If God did exist, he could not be understood as Good.
Lack of Evidence
There is no solid scientific evidence for the existence of God
Since theologians and the faithful have produced conflicting and mutually exclusive revelations, it is unlikely that God exists.
A cluster of arguments commonly attributed to a group of Western 21st century writers, that claim that religion is superstition, scientifically disprovable, and bad for society.
The Problem of Evil
It is impossible to reconcile the existence of evil with an omnipotent, omnibenevolent and omniscient God
The Argument from Non-Belief
The philosophical argument that asserts an inconsistency between the existence of God and a world in which people fail to recognize him
