Polytheistic claims are false .
Humans assume that all contradictions are false. Any worldview that does not allow for this assumption to be rationally justified is deductively false.
Premise 1: If anyone is not the author of every aspect of creation, then his authority is insufficient to rationally guarantee the behavior of creation.
Premise 2: Under polytheism, no one is the author of every aspect of creation.
Conclusion: Therefore, under polytheism, no one has the authority to rationally guarantee the behavior of creation.
Humans assume that creation is non-contradictory. Under polytheism, there can ultimately be no reason to hold to this assumption, making it an irrational assumption.
This Argument from Reason therefore demonstrates that polytheism is deductively false.

Along with numerous other authors including Don Landis, Bodie Hodge and Roger Patterson, Timothy McCabe contributes analyses of various world religions and cults in this volume from Master Books.
"What is your standard of truth? How do you determine what is true?"
1. God Himself is the standard of truth. (John 14:6; Exodus 34:6; 2 Samuel 7:28; Psalm 25:10; Isaiah 65:16; Ephesians 4:21; Titus 1:2; 1 John 5:6) 2. Because of this, when God reveals things to us, we know that what He reveals is true. The Bible stands as an authoritative communication to us from God Himself, and we can often discern truth or falsehood simply by comparing a particular claim with Biblical revelation.
"What unique evidence is there for your religion or worldview? Can you prove that what you say is true?"
In the words of the late Greg Bahnsen, the most basic proof of Christianity is that if it were not true, it would be impossible to prove anything at all. If the non-Christian worldview is true, the laws of logic are not valid. Therefore, even though non-Christians use logic to interpret evidence, they have no real justification for doing so. In the non-Christian worldview, logic is not something that can be trusted.
Islam is false: a simple proof
Islam refers to the specific philosophy of the Muslims, a monotheistic and unitarian belief system declared by Muhammad in 610 AD and described in the book known as the Qur'an.
