Is it possible to prove or disprove God´s existence? Arguments for the existence of God have taken many different forms over the centuries: the ontological, cosmological and teleological arguments; arguments which invoke miracles, religious experience and morality; and prudential arguments such as Pascal´s Wager. On the other hand are the arguments against theistic belief: the traditional problem of evil; the logical tensions between divine attributes such as omnipotence, omniscience and eternity; and arguments from the scale of the universe. In "The Non-Existence of God", Nicholas Everitt reconsiders all of these arguments and examines the role that reason and knowledge play in the debate over God´s existence. He draws on recent scientific disputes over neo-Darwinism, the implication of "big bang" cosmology, and the temporal and spatial size of the universe; and discusses some of the most recent work on the subject, such as Plantinga´s "anti-naturalism" argument in favour of theism. Everitt´s controversial conclusion is that there is a sense in which God´s existence is disprovable, and that even in other senses a belief in God would be irrational.
