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 that denies the possibility of rational thought denies the validity of the deductive reasoning process and is thus deductively false.

Premise 1: Any belief ultimately formed by non-reasoning causes is ultimately believed without reason.

Premise 2: If atheistic claims are true, every belief is ultimately formed by non-reasoning causes.

Conclusion: Therefore, if atheistic claims are true, every belief is ultimately believed without reason.

If atheistic claims are true, there is no reason to believe anything at all: every belief is irrational. There is then no reason to believe that contradictory claims are deductively false, thereby making atheistic claims themselves deductively false.

This Argument from Reason demonstrates that god exists.

"Brian Dunning from skeptoid.com claims that there is no record of a mass Exodus of Jewish slaves out of Egypt. Is this true?"

No. This is not even remotely the case. This would be true only if we were to throw out all record that we have of the exodus of Jews from Egypt, as Brian Dunning seems to do. Let's take a look at some of his outrageous claims. The statement in question comes from an essay on skeptoid.com entitled "Did Jewish Slaves Build the Pyramids?" PRESUPPOSITIONS Mr.

"Who killed King Saul, cause Samuel 31:4 and 2 Samuel 1:8-10 contradict each other?"

1 Samuel 31:4-5 Then Saul said to his armor bearer, "Draw your sword and pierce me through with it, otherwise these uncircumcised will come and pierce me through and make sport of me." But his armor bearer would not, for he was greatly afraid. So Saul took his sword and fell on it. When his armor bearer saw that Saul was dead, he also fell on his sword and died with him. 2 Samuel 1:8-10 "He said to me, 'Who are you?' And I answered him, 'I am an Amalekite.

"How can God be an uncaused cause?"

There is no other logical possibility. Either some things are caused, or nothing is. If nothing is caused, then I never wrote this. But I did write this, so at least some things are caused. If some things are caused, either their causing is the result of a previous cause, or it isn't. In other words, either something caused it to cause, or nothing caused it to cause.
