This paper discusses the different viewpoints that support and negate the existence of a God or higher power. This essay includes arguments propounded by renown philosophers such as Rene Descartes and Aristotle. The paper also examines this subject from philosophical, religious, and scientific standpoints.
From the Paper:"Off the topic of biology and astronomy, we can see that God may be necessary for our very perception. Both Descartes and Berkeley argue that God ensures that our perceptions of the world are true and accurate, though they do this in different ways. Descartes argues that other objects must cause our perceptions of them, since nothing cannot cause a perception of something, according to the principle of non-contradiction, and only the existence of God ensures that our perceptions are true because God is all-powerful, knowing, and good."
