Many scholars point out that St. Thomas’s actual arguments regarding the existence and nature of God are to be found liberally scattered throughout his major treatises, and that the five ways are little more than an introductory sketch of how the word 'God' can be defined without reference to special revelation (i.e., religious experience)."

Could you demonstrate how any of his 5 points could reasonably be argued against?
