Method

 

There are several methods of proof which are commonly used in science of logic and mathematics. Two of the most powerful ones are direct proof and indirect proof. We are going to use both methods together to reach definitive conclusions, and we aim not to leave any open doors.

In the first section, we are going to use a very strong form of indirect proof, known as “proof by contradiction”. This method ranks among the easiest kinds of proof methods. Once you have shown a contradiction, your proof is done. State what you have just disproved. So, if we show the contradictions and imposibilities of the other choices, they will be eliminated. The truth of the remaining one single way will absolutely be proven. Morever, there is a particular reason why we use this proof method; we aim not to leave any doubt in mind about the other choices by examining all of them first.

Since, nobody in human history, have claimed any other way except the four main roads,  which we mentioned in page “Goal” and since, reason can find no way apart from these four, if the first three ways are definitely proved to be impossible, invalid and absurd, the way of Divine Unity, which is the fourth way, will necessarily and self-evidently and without doubt or suspicion, be proved true.

After we refute the first three options in the first section and forced the travelers of the three dead-end streets to the fourth way, we are going to prove the presence of the creator again, by using direct method of proof. This will be an extra consolidation and will emphasize the plain truth. Three different technics will be used in our direct proof:

1.  Argument a priori:  This is a Latin expression. Its literal meaning is, ”from that which comes before.” Proving by going from cause to effect, from actor to act. In other words its taking existence of cause as evidence for the effect. For example, if there is fire (Cause), the there has to be smoke (Effect).  Even if we cannot see the smoke at night from a remote location, the fire proves that there is a smoke.

2. Argument a posteriori: This is another latin expression; literally meaning, “from that which comes after”. Proving by going from effect to cause, from act to actor. Effect is an evidence for cause. If there is smoke, there must be fire too.

As you see, fire and smoke are evidences to one another. So, act and actor are integral parts of a whole.

3. Example:  Giving examples for issues, which are hard to understand. Examples are like binoculars. Binoculars makes closer the far away things which cannot be seen clearly. Just like that, we can see the far away meanings, deep and subtle issues by simple examples. Oops! See, we have just used an example of binolucars even to explain need for using examples. So, examples are indispensable parts of life.

In conclusion, here is the outline of the methods that will be used in the “PROOF” section:

 

1. Indirect Proof

    Proof by Contradiction

 

2. Direct Proof

    Argument a priori

    Argument a posteriori

For better understanding of the proof, we recommend that you follow the following order:
