When stumbling upon the question of how and why we exist we start to come up with two sorts of baseline arguments of how we become to be who we are One way being the atheistic way of I create who I am based on my experiences and my own decisions and the other argument for the more religious God has made me the way I am An argument that is still ever present in todays society that stirs up lots of mixed emotions Now lets imagine having these radicle thoughts around the 1600s where questioning god and how and why we exist Descartes a man clearly ahead of his time tries to tackle these issues and not get killed for his different ways of thinking in his writings of Meditation Where Descartes tries to convince us that with the interaction of will and intellect can create errors within the human race that was constructed by a perfect God I agree with Descartes because there is no human greater than God and I believe that God creates a rough outline of what our lives should be but also allowing us to be able to make our own decisions and mistakes on the way but disagree with how Descartes tries to justify his argument Descartes backs up his argument of God by breaking down how we have knowledge intellect and will and then ties them to how we can be created by a perfect God to be perfectly flawed In the first meditation he tears us down and builds us back up Descartes makes us doubt all the things around us to mistrust our senses and makes us question everything around us This then leads into the mind vs body argument where we are sure that we are thinking beings but question our bodies if we can even trust them He then completely takes away our body which to any sane person wouldnt exactly help anyone
