Atheism

Definition

Atheism includes any philosophy which claims that no God or gods exist, including any rational or reasoning creator of the universe.

Keywords: Atheism, Philosophy, God, Rational, Veracity, False, Belief, Reason, Contradictory, Argument From Reason.

Veracity

Atheistic claims are false .

Proof

Any view regarding the external world that denies the possibility of rational thought regarding the external world prohibits warrant for the deductive process and is thus deductively false.

Premise 1: If premises begin to exist without reason, then conclusions drawn from them are also without reason.

Premise 2: If there is no god, all initial human premises about the external world begin to exist without reason.

Conclusion: Therefore, if there is no god, all human conclusions about the external world are also without reason.

If there is no god, there is no reason to accept the universality or the invariance of logic or the deductive process, making atheistic claims themselves deductively false.

This Argument from Reason demonstrates that god exists.

The apostle Paul, author of many of the books of the New Testament, begins his letters by saying things like "Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:3; 2 Corinthians 1:2; Galatians 1:3; Ephesians 1:2, etc).

"Would it be immoral NOT to kill a baby if god commanded it?"

Certainly. To anyone who would say otherwise, I would like to ask who exactly do you say defined our moral obligations? Who issued the moral commands that you feel we ought to obey? Did you? Or did someone else? If you did, why would you think they would apply to me? You didn't create me. Why would you think they would apply to all babies? You didn't create all babies either. If someone else did, did this other person create me? Did this other person create babies?

"According to the bible, God created earth before our sun. How would you justify that? That sounds illogical."

We read about God's creation of the heavens and the earth in Genesis 1. Genesis 1:9-10 (The Third Day) Then God said, "Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear"; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.
