    A priori knowledge is, in an important sense, independent of experience. If a proposition can be known a priori, then we can somehow see that it is true just by thinking and reasoning about it (see entry on a priori justification and knowledge).Here are some paradigm examples of propositions one can know a priori: (1) that all bachelors are unmarried (2) that all three sided plane figures will. The teleological or physico-theological argument, also known as the argument from design, or intelligent design argument is an argument for the existence of God or, more generally, for an intelligent creator based on perceived evidence of "intelligent design" in the natural world.. The earliest recorded versions of this argument are associated with Socrates in ancient Greece, although it has.

    An a priori argument is prior to / before sense experience. nature and attributes can be answered without referring to scripture or to any other form of a greater being that exists both in the mind and in reality. This being then would be greater than God. The argument for God’s existence that Gaven Kerr discusses and defends in this book is a very interesting argument in a couple of respects. First of all, this is an argument which doesn’t in an obvious way appear in Aquinas’ list of the Five Ways in the Summa Theologiae.

    Anselm’s Ontological Argument for the Existence of God Anselm’s argument is an a priori argument; that is, it is an argument that is independent of experience and based solely on concepts and logical relations, like a mathematical proof. The form of the argument is that of a reductio ad absurdum argument. Such an. Here, however, major problems arise, because his understanding of these divine attributes is hardly traditional. God is said to be omniscient, for example, even though “it is not logically possible for God to know infallibly beforehand what a free agent [a human being] will do.”.

Hume's first criticism of the Design argument (to do with a lesser being). Demea is the first to react to Cleanthes' argument from design. He does not approve of the claim that God and man are at all similar. Second, he is unhappy that Cleanthes is trying to use an a posteriori proof rather than a priori for God's existence (since the argument by design proves both God's nature and his being).
