The following universal consensus argument for the existence of God based on the Trinity is excerpted from pages 11-16 of my website at www.religiouspluralism.ca. Although an oversimplification in many ways, the number three is the first common denominator and birthmark of some very fundamental categories of reality, for example:
1) Space, i.e., length, breadth, and height or depth;
2) Time, i.e., past, present, and future;
3) Matter, i.e., solid, liquid, and gas;
4) Electro-magnetism, i.e., positive, negative, and neutral;
5) Atomic structure, i.e., protons, electrons, and neutrons;
6) The relationship between force, mass, and acceleration, i.e., F = ma;
7) The relationship between energy, matter, and light, i.e., E = MC2;
8) The relationship between elements of the Pythagorean triangle i.e., Z2 = X2 + Y2.
In addition, the psychology of the human soul is understood in three essential aspects of being, i.e., personality or ego self-consciousness, mind or id " conscious and unconscious, and spirit or superego " unconscious even superconscious. Furthermore, the threefold nature of human religious predilections is apparent in three major views or cultural attitudes to the Absolute, i.e.:
1. Muslims and Jews may be said to worship only the first person of the Trinity, i.e. the existential Deity Absolute Creator, known as Allah or Yhwh, Abba or Father (as Jesus called him), Brahma, and other names; represented by Gabriel (Executive Archangel), Muhammad and Moses (mighty messenger prophets), and others.
2. Christians and Krishnan Hindus may be said to worship the first person through a second person, i.e. the experiential Universe or "Universal" Absolute Supreme Being (Allsoul or Supersoul), called Son/Christ or Vishnu/Krishna; represented by Michael (Supreme Archangel), Jesus (teacher and savior of souls), and others. The Allsoul is that gestalt of personal human consciousness, which we expect will be the "body of Christ" (Mahdi, Messiah, Kalki or Maitreya) in the second coming " personified in history by Muhammad, Jesus Christ, Buddha (9th incarnation of Vishnu), and others.
3. Shaivite Hindus, Buddhists, and Confucian-Taoists seem to venerate the synthesis of the first and second persons in a third person or appearance, ie. the Destiny Consummator of ultimate reality " unqualified Nirvana consciousness " associative Tao of All That Is " the absonite* Unconditioned Absolute Spirit "Synthesis of Source and Synthesis,"** who/which is logically expected to be Allah/Abba/Brahma glorified in and by union with the Supreme Being " represented in religions by Gabriel, Michael, and other Archangels, Mahadevas, Spiritpersons, etc., who may be included within the mysterious Holy Ghost.
Other strains of religion seem to be psychological variations on the third person, or possibly combinations and permutations of the members of the Trinity " all just different personality perspectives on the Same God. Taken together, the world"s major religions give us at least two insights into the first person of this thrice-personal One God, two perceptions of the second person, and at least three glimpses of the third.
If, as it seems, it may be sufficiently demonstrated that the multidimensional nature of One God in Trinity manifestation is reflected in the religious pluralism of the world, and human psychology, as well as the metaphysics of space, time, matter, energy, force, atomic structure, etc; then and therefore, the existence of that God must be regarded as systematically self-evident. This proof anticipates the eventuation of a Universal Consensus of religion and science.
