Some view opinions held by all people to be valid criteria of truth. According to consensus gentium, the universal consent of all mankind, all humans holding a distinct belief proves it is is some value in the criterion if it means innate truth, such as the laws of logic and it merely means agreement, as in a unanimous vote, its value is questionable.

The Law of Causality and the Uncaused Cause. The law of science known as the Law of Causality, or Law of Cause and Effect, says that every material effect must have an adequate antecedent or simultaneous cause (Miller, ).The Universe is a material effect that demands an adequate Cause, and atheism cannot provide one.

proving the existence of God. According to the argument, some uncaused being (usually identified as God) has caused to exist everything that exists in the universe.

Critics claim that the argument fails because it assumes that everything, and thus also God, must have a cause. A criterion of truth was expected to be something naturally available to every mature human being as a basis for distinguishing true from false.

Since it was that which made progress towards philosophical understanding possible, its availability and use could not be restricted to. Truth is one of the central subjects in philosophy. It is also one of the largest.

(I think therefore I am - Cogito ergo sum) - The existence of his own. Introduction. Although Graham Oppy’s interest in the possibility of uncaused beginnings springs from his concern with cosmological arguments for God’s existence, [1] the truth of the causal premiss featured in at least one version of the argument, namely, that everything that begins to exist has a cause, is of such general metaphysical importance that it ought to interest any metaphysician.

For James, even though effectiveness is a pragmatic truth criterion, it is not a loose one; it is, however, a criterion employed within a context of preserving prior beliefs that effectively guide practical and intellectual interaction with reality.

Philosophy. The Old al philosophy is not an abstract monologue but a dialogue with God. The Bible never attempts to prove the existence of God, bur starts from the premise that God exists (i.e., Gen ); philosophy, in contrast, takes up questions concerning the nature of the universe and existence that do not necessarily presume the verity of God.

2+2=4 is a logically necessary truth. The universe is standardly defined as the set of events, each event being a point in a 4-dimensional space-time continuum, such that each event is characterized by four coordinates (x 1,x 2,x 3,t), the first three being spatial and the fourth temporal.

Actually, in discussing truth and verification, Dewey uses the terms equivocally. In the Thomistic theory, truth is inseparable from being; if there is no being, there is no truth. In a world of pure becoming there can be no question of truth, for becoming without being is unintelligible.

Thus, for the Thomist, Dewey's truth is unintelligible. The Eternal Son is the unqualified personality-absolute, that divine being who stands throughout all time and eternity as the perfect revelation of the personal nature of God. The Infinite Spirit is the conjoint personality, the unique personal consequence of the everlasting Father-Son union.

And this, From The Goodness of God: Righteousness implies that God is the source of the moral law of the universe.

Truth exhibits God as a revealer, as a teacher. ‘The cosmological argument shows that it is reasonable to believe in God’ How far do you agree? - 15 Mark Aquinas’ cosmological argument is a theory that is highly credible due it to being very logical and having support from science and common human observation.
