Example text

As I attempt to think about that question, I may need to understand how I will know the answer. As indicated above, this book will discuss knowledge derived from the rational and personal. It is my contention that reason and what Oxford chemist and philosopher Michael Polanyi termed “personal knowledge” are authentic ways of knowing. I am proposing that empirical verification, deduction from theoretical con11 A CASE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD structs, metaphysical reasoning, and mystical participation are all valid ways of knowing.

The argument I will examine is influenced by the thinking of Mortimer Adler, who believed that he had successfully modified the arguments of Aquinas and Aristotle. As noted above, Adler held that his argument proved the existence of God beyond a reasonable doubt, but not beyond a shadow of a doubt. My argument modifies Adler’s discussion and also appeals to the intelligibility of the universe. I describe certain developments in philosophy and science that strengthen Adler’s argument. I emphasize that the intelligibility of the universe is what 22 CHAPTER 2 makes rational and scientific inquiry possible and, inter alia, is demonstrated in the inherently mathematical character of the universe.

Even the highly empirical Bertrand Russell noted that one kind of knowledge (abstract, descriptive knowledge) may come from hearing or reading about Julius Caesar, but another more basic knowledge (knowledge of acquaintance) comes from meeting Julius Caesar. I want to be clear that I am not arguing against an openness to the disclosure of God implied in the scientific evidence and in the fact that there is something rather than nothing. This book contains several discussions in that area. 13 How we think about God to a significant extent, perhaps far more than contemporary figures may realize, is heavily influenced by the intellectual movement effected by the dynamic persuasive abilities of Immanuel Kant, the greatest philosopher of the eighteenth century.
