7) Leibnizian Cosmological Argument

Wilhelm Gottfried von Leibniz is easily one of the most intelligent humans who has ever lived. He developed multiple computer-type machines and calculators as well as the binary language foundational to all modern computers in the 1600’s. Leibniz also made huge advancements in mathematics; having developed integral and differential calculus independently from contemporary genius Isaac Newton.

One of Leibniz’ great passions was a fascination with the God he believed created and sustained all of existence. His argument for God is based on his own principle of sufficient reason. “Everything,” he says “has a reason for its existence.”


1) Anything that exists has an explanation of its existence (either in the necessity of its own nature or in an external cause).

2) If the universe has an explanation of its existence, that explanation is God.

3) The universe exists.

4) Therefore, the universe has an explanation of its existence.

5) Therefore, the explanation of the existence of the universe is God.

  1. My personal number one reason is “I’VE SEEN CHRIST JESUS” and know full well He is God~! He said more Blessed is He who has not seen but who Believes~!The reason for that is it takes the “Purest Faith” to Believe in an Unseen God.I am unsure why He revealed Himself to me but I am Grateful He did.
