An Argument for the Theory Human Reasoning and Objectivity for God’s Non-Existence in the Philosophy of David Hume This philosophical study will analyze the three primary arguments that argue against the rational existence of God in Concerning Natural Religion by David Hume. By analyzing the argument of Demea through organized religion, the impossibility of knowing God through reason is something that Philo also aggress with in his purely rational approach to the existence of a higher power. However, Cleanthes proposes am empirical theism that defines the existence of god through machines and man-made intelligent design, but is also not adequate in denying Philo’s important arguments in the lack of evidence for God. In essence, David Hume...The end:
.....ents that try to define orthodox religious and a theistic empiricism for the basis of God’s existence, these arguments do not provide any substantial experience or objective proof over that of analogous subjectivity. Within this context, Philo represents a human reasoning and objective discourse that effectively argues Hume’s more empirical understanding of God’s existence. Within this criterion, Hume provides a strong argument for human reasoning and objective methods in the fictional discussions that take place in Concerning Natural Religion.
