theology, creation

theology, creation
   Creation theology is an attempt to think about God from the evidence of the physical universe around us. A very popular argument from creation is the argument to design, which claims to find evidence for the existence of an omnipotent, omniscient and perfectly good creator in the physical universe's order, beauty and serviceableness to us. Creation theology was at its highest in the middle of the medieval period, reaching its apogee in Aquinas' 'five ways', and it has long been popular in the Roman-Catholic tradition, but it has also received many defenders outside that tradition, from William Paley to Richard Swinburne.
