I appreciate the response.

Dawkins is a much better “philosopher” than Aquinas, since Aquinas had little understanding of ethical theories, epistemology, & the great philosophical issues. Since Aquinas, the world has encountered a vast amount of secular philosophers that will disagree with Theism in every sense imaginable. David Hume, Voltaire, Immanuel Kant, Adam Smith, Bertrand Russell, J. P. Sartre, Albert Camus, Simone de Beavoir, Michel Foucault, Herbert Marcuse, Wittgenstein, Heidegger, Daniel C. Dennett, Peter Singer, and countless others have expressed similar concerns with Aquinas' “proofs” for God’s existence. Anyone with basic philosophical training will recognize this.

You are committed to a priori arguments that have little intellectual worth in the 21st century. That’s all right, though. You’ll have plenty of time to change your beliefs.

Until then, I’ll leave you with a quote from Voltaire: “Doubt is an unpleasant condition. But certainty is absurd.”

All the best to your journey in skepticism.
