1. Philosophy of religion is all about finding out reason behind human belief.

it is not about teaching people what or what not to believe, but rather it finds deeper understanding through critical analyses and rational thinking. moreover, it is not a challenge to faith for it does not go to nor against it, it simply seeks more facts than hear-says particularly. at the end of the day, it is religion that tells us to believe and it is philosophy that helps us understand why we believe. 2. "a posteriori" means "from the later". Aquinas' Cosmological Arguments were based on general knowledge that are already obvious to man even from before. it came from factual experiences that everyone perceives. he proved God's existence by an appeal to human to human reason using human experiences that are felt and observed even without experimentation. (#2. example. as per request the first way talks about motion. motion has been evident and been observable to man even before it was explained. we already knew that motion can only happen when someone begins a movement. Aquinas based his proposition on that knowledge and arrived to a conclusion that in order to prove existence and the presence of God, there must be an initiator of the movement that is supposed to be unmoved by another to end the infinite chain that leads to nothingness.) 3. (basahin niyo 3rd way, andun ang sagot) 4. the first way talks about motion. motion has been evident and been observable to man even before it was explained. we already knew that motion can only happen when someone begins a movement. Aquinas based his proposition on that knowledge and arrived to a conclusion that in order to prove existence and the presence of God, there must be an initiator of the movement that is supposed to be unmoved by another to end the infinite chain that leads to nothingness. (again, pwedeng support sa number 2 question.) a counter argument says that this "prime mover" is impossible for everything is on a state of becoming and that actuality and potentiality

cannot be absolute. still, movement has it's end and even after series of transitions, everything will arrive to a point where it stops moving making it on a state of actual potentiality. this arrives to the conclusion that there is an end to things and it will only be logical to presume that when there is an end, there should be a beginning. this beginning should not depend on a cause of movement for it will not end the chain. this beginning should be a "prime mover" or one that is unmoved. 5. Religion, for children, is like an heirloom, they never really chose it for it is readily given to them. this statement is not about why the mother answers the child that way but explains why children tend to believe in things. our parents have told us about our faith. they have also thought us that the primary reason for thing comes by the name, God. (explain niyo ang effect nung statement, yung meaning nun, yung basis nun... basta yung mga sinabi ni sir nung first meeting.)
