What do I think is the best argument for God’s existence?

There are many philosophical and scientific arguments for God’s existence. Many of them are convincing and powerful like the kalam cosmological argument, teleological argument, or the moral argument. I’ve even written about those in one of my first ever blog posts. However, I think there might be an even better argument when understood correctly. Check it out!

How does consciousness point to God?

Consciousness is one of the undeniable facts of our universe, yet it is also of the biggest mysteries for atheists. Most naturalists don’t have an answer as to where it came from. Michael Ruse, an atheist philosopher, said on a recent Unbelievable? podcast that it’s the hardest question to answer for a naturalist. Sam Harris, an atheist philosopher and neuroscientist, wrote a two part blog on The Mystery of Consciousness where he said that consciousness cannot be an illusion, it isn’t physical, and that unconscious complexity can’t produce it. It is for these reasons and others that I think consciousness is best explained by God.

In this week’s podcast, Ryan responds to a listener question and then more details about how consciousness points to God.
