Atheistic claims are false .
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.

"Does the "problem of evil" show that an all-good, all-powerful, all-knowing god cannot exist?"
The "problem of evil" generally goes something like this. 1. If God had all-power over our universe, he would have been able to prevent the wickedness of Adolf Hitler. 2. If God had all-knowledge of our universe, he would have known how to prevent the wickedness of Adolf Hitler. 3. If God were all-good, he would have wanted to prevent the wickedness of Adolf Hitler. 4. Adolf Hitler was wicked in our universe. 5.
"Why does the creator of the entire universe get the value of pi wrong (2 Chron 4: 2)?"
God didn't get Pi wrong. Rather, He rounded to the nearest cubit. "Also he made the cast metal sea, ten cubits from brim to brim, circular in form, and its height was five cubits and its circumference thirty cubits." -2 Chronicles 4:2 If we were to write down the whole value of Pi, or in this case, Pi times 10, we would never finish writing. Therefore, whenever anyone, Creator of the universe or not, writes down the value of Pi for us to read, it is always rounded.
"Here is another contradiction of the millions in the bible: Hebrews 6:18 vs. Ezekiel 14:9, if you think this isn't a contradiction, please respond with proof from scripture."
Hebrews 6:17-18 (NKJV) Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.
