Is there evidence for the existence of God?

This lecture gives seven arguments for belief in God, followed by a Q&A session.

Starting from the question “Is the material world all there is?”, this lecture presents signposts beyond the natural world which provide evidence for the existence of God. Seven different areas are covered, including the cosmological argument, the fine-tuning argument, the moral argument and the argument from the Resurrection of Jesus.
