Summary
"Some of the brightest scientific minds of our time have made incredible insights into the earliest origins of the universe but have failed to ultimately discover why there is something rather than nothing--why we exist. In 'A Case for the Existence of God', Dean L. Overman examines the latest theories about the origins of the universe and explains why even the most sophisticated science can only take us so far. Ultimately, we must make a leap of faith to under the world, and Overman argues that a leap into theism provides the most satisfying conclusions."--P. [4] of cover

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" that 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 --
