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.

"Why Pray? If it changes God's mind then he is not sovereign. If it does not change God's mind then it is pointless."

In Jesus's model prayer, known as the Lord's prayer, found in Matthew 6 and Luke 11, Jesus both begins and ends by praising the Father. He states His complete commitment to Him and dependence upon Him.

"Comparing Exodus Ch.33 V.20 with Genesis 32:30, God says no man can see Him and live, and then Jacob is celebrating to have done just that. Is this a contradiction?"

Here are the relevant passages (NASB)... Exodus 33:20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!" Genesis 32:30 So Jacob named the place Peniel, for he said, "I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been preserved." Neither of these passages is intended to be taken literally.

"Where is existence going (i.e. eschatology), both immediately and ultimately?"

The Bible states that no one is perfect but God alone (Luke 18:19). As a result, all of us have earned death and condemnation (Romans 6:23). However, in an amazing substitution, God Himself lived the perfect human life in our place, and paid our fine on the cross (2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 5). Those of us who put our trust in the work He did in our place will be forgiven (Romans 4:5, John 3:18).
