Can it be demonstrated that God exists? It is widely held that Thomas Aquinas for one thinks so. I will argue that in fact he does not. The reasons why he does not are not of merely historic interest, but provide an opportunity to think about issues in the philosophy of language, as well as epistemology, particularly the epistemology of religious belief.
