Many Kinds of Rational Theistic Belief

In G. Bruntrup & R. K. Tacelli (eds.), The Rationality of Theism. Kluwer Academic Publishers. pp. 21--38 (1999)
Abstract
After a discussion of several concepts of explanation, in which the criterion of simplicity is emphasized and some interesting historical examples are used as illustration, this paper presents the cosmological and teleological arguments. The central claim is that the hypothesis of theism is more simple and elegant and so more rational than any of its alternatives.
