Why atheism is logically unsustainable
(Article, 237 words. Est. 1 mins average reading)
Those who have studied pure logic will know. There are only three possible logical states with regard to faith;
1. I am a believer. I.e. I have faith, and I promote the idea that there IS a god. And I do what I can to support his principles
2. I am an agnostic (i.e. meaning literally; from the greek, “I do not yet recognize”). Where insufficient evidence has yet been presented to tip the balance of my opinion in favour of belief.
3. I am atheist. i.e. I know for sure – beyond all reasonable doubt – that “there is no god”.
Only Number 3, here is the fool.
He who proclaims with absolute certainty “there is no god” whilst having at his disposal only the smallest fraction of the Universe’s information known to him, is merely expressing an unprovable opinion.
Number 1, above suffers no logical inconsistency as does the Atheist, because people of faith are – by definition – acting upon more than just mere logic. They are acting and producing life choices based on faith.
An atheist purports to use logic and reason. Because of this, he reaches a logical fallacy that destroys his own position. He says; “Even though I can’t know for sure, I still know there is no god”.
Eh? Say what? But what you’ve just done is actually define an Agnostic. Checkmate!
