info.gif Argument from Reason: An argument for God’s existence "...based on the reality of reason in human persons." The argument can take on many different forms, but in general " attempts to show that the necessary conditions of logical and mathematical reasoning... require the rejection of all broadly materialist worldviews." Proponents of this argument include C. S. Lewis, Alvin Plantinga, and Victor Reppert.
