The “Five Ways” are five logical arguments regarding the existence of God summarized by the 13th-century Catholic philosopher and theologian St. Thomas Aquinas in his book Summa Theologica. They are:

  • the unmoved mover;
  • the first cause;
  • the argument from contingency;
  • the argument from degree;
  • the teleological argument (“argument from design”).

Stephen White will describe these 5 arguments and discuss whether these argument are valid in our scientific age.

Stephen has had a career as a physicist in the defense industry in South Australia and is currently a councilor in the Salisbury Council.
