Anyway, Medved then asked Shermer what he thought was the argument from my book that is the most challenging to his own, skeptical position. His answer was the Aristotelian argument.
I don’t want to make too much of this, and I don’t know exactly how challenging or weak Shermer thinks the argument is at the end of the day. But it is an interesting response nonetheless. Aristotle’s argument for an Unmoved Mover is often quickly dismissed or ignored altogether on the grounds that it rests on archaic physics. But it doesn’t, as I show in the book. When people come to see this and consider more carefully the basic idea of the argument, I find that they often find it much more interesting than they had initially realized it was.Aristotle on Medved see link below for the radio discussion: Michael Medved Show - Debate about the Proof of God
