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.

"Leonard Woolly (etc) found that the flood was local and hit only 4 major cities. This matches the Quran; only the disbelievers of Noah's time were punished. So yet again archeologically the Bible has been proven false. Are you still a Christian?"

If the Biblical flood actually happened the way it is described in scripture, then in the words of Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, we would expect to find "billions of dead things buried in rock laid down by water all over the earth". And, this is exactly what we find. Even Mt. Everest, debatably the tallest mountain in the world, has marine fossils at its peak. Is it possible to explain individual fossils apart from the flood of Noah? Certainly it is.

"Is there anything that troubles you personally about the belief system you adhere to? What is it and why is it troubling?"

The most troubling thing for me personally, and indeed this must necessarily trouble every Christian in some way, is that according to the Bible I am a sinner, deserving of death for my sins (Romans 3:23, 6:23). This does not trouble me because it seems to be untrue, but rather because it is so plainly true. All Christians must be troubled by this, because if they are not, there would be no motivation to repent and ask for the forgiveness of their Creator.

"Is what is morally good commanded by God because it is morally good, or is it morally good because it is commanded by God?"

This question has been around at least since Plato, and is known by the name of the "Euthyphro Dilemma". It's really nothing more than a silly trick question wearing a "deep" philosophical mask. If one were to go with the first option provided, it leads to the conclusion that God is subject to the authority of Objective Morality and is not actually able to do whatever He wants, making Him not really God.
