Arguments for the existence of God
In J. Houston (ed.), Is It Reasonable to Believe in God? Handsel Press. pp. 121 - 133 (1984)
In an inductive argument data increase the probability of a hypothesis insofar as the hypothesis makes probable the data, the data are otherwise not likely to occur, and the hypothesis is simple. The cosmological argument from the existence of the universe, the teleological argument from its conformity to natural law, and other arguments from more detailed features of the universe each increase the probability that there is a God. I thus summarize in a simple form the main points of my book The Existence of God
