Omnipotence and suffering. Most arguments for a monotheistic faith assert that god is all knowing and all powerful and cares for his ‘children’. However, this is logical fallacious as we do suffer in our lives and if god is not omnipotent and omniscient this should not be the case.

Big bang and evolution. All religions and their arguments for the existence of a supreme being contain positions on the origin of the universe and the origin of the different forms of life. Scientific research in regards to the big bang and evolution through natural selection have shown these positions to be false eliminating certain arguments for certain types of gods.

Morality. This argument asserts itself from the belief that for morality to be necessary in the universe a supreme being must exist in order to support it. It is based on the evidence of moral normativity and moral order that exists in our reality.

Cosmological argument. Facts, with respect to our universe and the processes within it, concerning causation, change, contingency and motion point towards the existence of a unique being creating our cosmos. In essence, an intelligent being is the cause of our universe.
