The Unmoved Mover and Pure Act
#65
Thanks to all who helped me understand this aspect of the First Argument.

I gave the talk last night and spoke about how we can come to a knowledge of God through demonstrative arguments (the Five Ways) and can find reasonable grounds for believing in the existence of God (the argument from fine-tuning and morality). To be honest, I felt the tumbleweed roll as I went through the Argument from Motion, but when I came to examples of the latter kind of argument I felt greater interest and actually started enjoying the talk.

At the end I said that even though the listeners might not grasp the Argument from Motion straight away (and it took me many months of working away at it to even begin to scratch the surface) it should give the lie to the claim of atheists that we have belief and they have reason. In fact, I said that it was the other way about: theism is capable of demonstration but atheism is no more than belief.

Phew...
