1. My plan is to prove the existence of God, before moving onto the question of "What is God like?". That makes sense, right? I don't want to put the cart before the horse.
2. This is a philosophical project, which means I am limiting myself to arguments based on reason and experience. I'll try to avoid making theological arguments, even if it might be tempting to "cheat" and use something like a quotation from the Pope as a "shortcut".
With that said, here are things which will probably not be discussed, as they don't directly relate to the proofs for the existence of God.
- The Bible
- Specific religious denominations
3. In response to Vast Universe, individual spirituality or (religious) experience of God is on the list of topics to discuss. Since it only applies to an individual, though, people generally dismiss it as an invalid proof for the existence of God.
4. Recently, I read a nice article on the beliefs of infants. The author concluded that, as far as babies are concerned, you can't safely make conclusions that go beyond "babies find silly faces to be amusing" and "babies believe loud, unexpected noises are scary".
