Does God   exist?

In lessons we will be looking at some of the reasons people   find it difficult to believe in the existence of God.  At home you can investigate reasons why   people do believe that God exists.  You   can look at arguments from design, causation, religious experience, amongst   others.

You will gain a balanced understanding of reasons why   people believe in God, and also reasons why people find it hard to believe in   the existence of God.  the ultimate aim   is that you come to a well-considered opinion for yourself, and you are able   to give reasons for it.
