Craig's Case for God

At the end of his article "Does God Exist?" William Craig provides a brief summary of his case for God:

In summary, we’ve seen eight respects in which God provides a better account of the world than naturalism: God is the best explanation of

(I) Why anything at all exists.

(II) The origin of the universe.

(III) The applicability of mathematics to the physical world.

(IV) The fine-tuning of the universe for intelligent life.

(V) Intentional states of consciousness.

(VI) Objective moral values and duties.


(VII) The very possibility of God’s existence implies that God exists.

(VIII) God can be personally experienced and known.
