The Bible says "The fool has said in his heart there is no God." Paul said to the Romans "...what may be known about God is plain...so that men are without excuse." But many today would claim it is not obvious God exists. Is it possible the current state of metaphysical ambiguity can be understood in a way that is consistent with Scriptural claims about this?
We examine the claim of Charles Finney that the existence of God is a first truth of Reason. This kind of transcendental argument does have some strength in the areas of logic, existence of the external world, and morality. Can it carry the full metaphysical weight of ultimate explanation, and the existence of God?
