I was browsing Facebook the other day (as I often do) and came across a paper that looked really interesting. It was titled: “From a Cosmic Fine-Tuner to a Perfect Being.” That caught my attention immediately because Fine-Tuning Arguments have traditionally been thought of as to only get us to a cosmic designer, not all the way to God (classically conceived). After reading the paper, I found it so interesting that I contacted the author, Justin Mooney, and invited him on for an interview. This podcast episode is the result!
Justin Mooney is currently a PhD student at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He has two Masters degrees in Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion. His research interests are Metaphysics and, you guessed it, Philosophy of Religion. Check out his bio and published papers here.
In this episode we’re talking about a New Cumulative Case for God’s Existence. I’m joined by the soon-to-be Dr. Justin Mooney. He’s currently a PhD student but already has two masters degrees in philosophy and philosophy of religion. Super smart dude. I also really loved chatting with him. I like how he explains things. The content of this episode is potentially groundbreaking. Justin, along with a few other philosophers, has discovered a new way of defending God’s existence. Instead of using one argument to get a powerful being and another argument to get a designer and another to get a moral being, we can instead infer a perfect being from each argument. But you’ve got to listen to the actual episode to hear how that works.
