Monotheism

Definition

Monotheism refers to any philosophy which claims that there is only one supreme creator of the universe.

Keywords: Monotheism, Atheism, Polytheism, Theism, Philosophy, True, Deductive, Creator, Universe.

Veracity

Monotheistic claims are true .

Proof

Either there are no gods, and therefore atheistic claims are true, or there are many gods, and therefore polytheistic claims are true, or there is only one god, and therefore monotheistic claims are true.

Premise 1: If atheistic claims and polytheistic claims are both false, then monotheistic claims are true.

Premise 2: Both atheistic and polytheistic claims are false.

Conclusion: Therefore, monotheistic claims are true.

Since both atheistic and polytheistic claims are deductively false, monotheistic claims are therefore deductively true.

However, any belief ultimately caused without reason is ultimately held to irrationally. Under most worldviews, all human beliefs are ultimately caused without reason. This demonstrates the irrationality of atheism, polytheism, pantheism, and unitarianism, as well as empiricism.

"Who was Cain's wife?"

According to the Bible, Adam and Eve, the two first people (Genesis 2), initially had two sons, Cain and Abel (Genesis 4:1-2). Cain murdered his brother Abel (Genesis 4:8), took off into the Land of Nod (Genesis 4:16), and had many descendants (Genesis 4:17-24). We aren't told specifically who his wife was.
