Evidence for the existence of God
RE: Evidence for the existence of God
If the ability to explain everything is evidence for god, does that mean the fact that we don't know how the big bang happened is evidence against god



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

No, that's evidence for god too, because if we don't know a thing then god could be hiding there. And also, because knowledge requires someone to know it, and clearly that someone isn't a human person right now, so it's the christian god.

Funny how that works, ain't it? Rolleyes

Its almost like he's presenting an argument he can't lose either way.

P1: Truth exists.

Is there any evidence that truth exists?

Actually, he isn't presenting an argument at all, he's just making unsupported claims and pretending that no matter what happens, he wins.
There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide mankind that cannot be achieved as well or better through secular means.

Something can be true.

I am sitting at my computer, that is true and provable.
