Change occurs for a reason?

The difference to me is that there is no evidence either way about a supreme being. There is evidence that change occurs for a reason. I don’t see any evidence that change occurs for a reason. Do you have examples?

Proving there is no God

Let me start off by saying that the strongest evidence that God, a Christian/Jewish/Muslim God, cannot exist, is pure logic, I will demonstrate below. However, I am interested in to why you get angry with God? If you believe in free will, then God can have NO influence on anything in the world to make […]

Evidence for God: Suffering

Fair enough. I do agree that it is a fairly hard concept to grasp and I don’t think that even Christians fully grasp the idea of God. I’m not sure what reason I would give you that would be very compelling, as there are many reasons out there. Some are probably more compelling than others. […]

Evidence for God

Why don’t you believe in God? And what is the strongest evidence you’ve ever had supporting that he does not exist? As well as what’s the strongest argument you’ve ever heard as to why he DOES exist (so that I don’t repeat anything that would not be convincing)? I guess my story is, in case […]

The “problem” of evil

Atheists think that the “problem” of evil is proof that God does not exist. The argument is that if God is good there would not be evil in the world but there is evil in the world like tsunamis so God is not good but God is supposed to be all good so God does […]

Kalam cosmological argument

The Kalam cosmological argument is an ancient proof that God exists. It says that everything that comes into existence has a cause. The universe came into existence. Therefore the universe had a cause. That cause had to be outside the universe. Therefore that cause is God. Therefore God exists.Another way to look at this is […]

Why be deist?

I have been wondering about God’s existence for a while now, and been swapping between deism and atheism. The two opposing ideas, the atheist view that the universe either started for no reason or has always existed and the deist view of a God that exists to start the universe and create laws and constants […]

Hi: I appreciate the positive way in which you provide this forum and also the positive way you interact with those who correspond with you despite the vitriol that many of them display. I don’t believe that true and honest argument can be made either direction when hate and anger are the basis of any […]

December 2007

Isn’t it reasonable to believe in some kind of creator when you look at the miracles all around us? Take for example a DNA-molecule, a regular tree or a fish… the beauty of nature if you will. I’d say that makes it a 50/50-chance that there is some kind of higher being. As for the […]

December 2007

First of all I must say I regret the incredible lack of serious reactions on your blog. Even though it is obviously intended as a serious invite to a rational discussion. I’ll try to make up for it. I regret the fact that you chose to be an atheist. I aknowledge the fact that there […]
