If you want more rigorous treatments (highly technical philosophical articles, I would research the writings of William Lane Graig, and/or Professor Alvin Plantinga. Much of what they have to say is truly inarguable.

Here are the article names and links, for more leisurely perusal and contemplation (that, I have found, can generally generate more light than just heat ;-) ):
