Soren Kierkegaard was highly critical of natural theology, i.e. the attempt to demonstrate that God exists or to learn something about God’s nature without appealing to revelation. While Kierkegaard’s aversion towards natural theology can be found throughout many his works, it is in "Philosophical Crumbs" where his most compelling arguments against natural theology are found. In this paper I want to accomplish two things. First, I want to show that Kierkegaard presents interesting objections to the various arguments for God’s existence, including the ontological, cosmological, and teleological argument. Second, I want to give an account of the leap in "Crumbs", as well as in "Concluding Unscientific Postscript", in order to understand why Kierkegaard is critical of natural theology. /
