The purpose of this paper will be to examine Descartes argument for the existence of God First we will review Descartes proof for the existence of God Then we will discuss the reasons that Descartes has for proving Gods existence We will also discuss some consequences that appear as a result of Gods existence Finally we will point to some complications and problems that exist within the proof The primary problem with most religions in the world has always been that they presuppose faith that is one cannot be reasoned into believing in a religion if such wasnt the case then we would have seen a huge migration to one religion or another In any given religion the main proof of Gods existence is the fact that the holy scriptures- whichever ones they maybe- inform us of his existence and his powers Then again we only believe in these scriptures because we think that they come from God Suffice to say this is a circular argument that cannot be used as a proof We would all like to believe that we believe in God and our given religion because of faith But what is faith And how can a Muslim a Jew and a Christian all possess the same certainty about their given religions without there being any doubt in their minds as to the certainty of their religions and faith Descartes set out to build a set of arguments designed to prove Gods existence On those he constructed all of his other arguments His goal in proving Gods existence was twofold he wanted to build ground to base his arguments on that is that he exists etc That goal will not be discussed in too much depth in this paper It is his other goal the one that he addressed in his letter to the Sorbonne that will be focused on that is to prove beyond a doubt
