: English Does god exist? & examining the atheist arguments against



02-26-2019, 09:14 PM
The video of the lecture of Abdullah Andalusi at Surrey University Islamic Society on How Do We Know God Exists, and historical attempts to prove otherwise? is now available to watch online.


It features a different take on the usual Does God Exist? question, by including a discussion on all the common arguments used against Gods existence by Atheists, Agnostics and other such deniers. The lecture and Q/A goes through an eclectic mix of topics from the debate between Muslim philosophers on the Uncreatedness of the Quran, Quantum mechanics, the theory of Evolution, to Cantors infinite sets in mathematics, and much more.


This maybe one of the most comprehensive discussions on the existence of God (and arguments against it) . A must watch for anyone curious about the approaches to the subject, both for and against.

A kind commenter organised the video content into topics (with links to the moments in the video)
