Gottried Wilhelm Leibniz – Theism

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was another Christian philosopher, who instead of using basic ideas, he takes a counter argumentative stance to Atheism. Although he is more of a deist, he believes that God did create the universe, which is comparable to a theist. He argues that Atheists only see the bad in situations and so they are short-sighted. For example, if one were to look at a large picture, from a close perspective, it would look very disorganized and ugly; however if one were to look the picture from far away, we would see the whole picture for what it really is. So he argues that Atheists are the ones looking at the picture from a close perspective and they draw conclusions based on the negative things that they see rather than trying to get a different perspective and coming to a proper conclusion.
