Table of Contents

The question of God's existence : the radical contingency of the universe points toward a necessary being
Many generations of philosophers have made the mistake of assuming Hume and Kant's objections disposed of the cosmological argument
A universe with an infinite past would still require a necessary being to sustain its existence
Because the universe (or multiverse) had a beginning, it is contingent and has a cause for its coming into existence
The philosophy of nature set forth in this book emphasizes the intelligibility of the universe noted in Einstein's statement : "the most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible;" a significant issue in examining the "something" which exists is : why is it intelligible?
Evolution is not dispositive of the question of why there is something rather than nothing and why the universe is rational and intelligible
The mystery of information challenges a strict materialism
The existence of God gives an absolute which is consistent with the real existence of right and wrong.
