Episode-06- A Counter Argument to Atheists who ask for “Evidence of God”

To me the most common argument made by atheists is that God doesn’t exist because you cannot prove God exists.  Further when one points out that atheists cannot prove God does not exist, the atheist counters with the accurate statement that you “cannot prove a negative”.

As deists we are led by logic and reason, we believe in God because we know the metaphor of “I know a watch maker exists when I see a watch” is accurate, but this is not a sufficient counter argument to the atheist that doesn’t share our faith.

My counter argument to this however, is quite simple as you will hear in today’s episode.  The atheist is unable to offer any proof for the existence of life apart from something we would call God.  There is nothing here where the atheist can say, they can’t be called upon to produce a negative.  Rather we call upon them to produce a positive.

If the basic raw material on the early earth can spontaneously produce life, even one celled organisms, please recreate this for us in a laboratory.  Tune in today for a complete examination of this topic.

    the problem is, it doesn’t´t sound logical to postulate a higher intelligent creator who is likely to be more complex than us. How do you explain his/her/its coming into being? who created him before he created the universe? My personal belief is that intelligent life came into existence spontaneously, and that however it happened is something science hasn’t figured out yet. Just because we haven´t figured it out doesn’t mean we have to resort to an imaginary creator who is even more difficult to explain. The universe evolved from simple matter and energy, and life has only come into existence late in the universe, from what we know, by some process which could be extremely rare (hence why it can´t be replicated in labs, yet). If you postulate a creator other than the forces of nature (physics and chemistry and more recently biology), then you just belittle nature. I think the forces of nature are our creators. Then someone may be like “oh well, how do you explain the forces of nature then? Aha got you! There has to be a creator that created them!” I would just wonder “then who created the creator?”. I don´t know, that just sound more logical to me.

      Not a logical argument! Sorry it just isn’t.

      “The problem is, it doesn’t´t sound logical to postulate a higher intelligent creator who is likely to be more complex than us. How do you explain his/her/its coming into being?”

      I can’t and I don’t claim to. I personally see God as the eternal constant, that which has no beginning, no end, no middle, no time, no space and yet is all and everything including us at the same “time”.

      But I don’t pretend that I am smarter than every other being on this planet and my definition is right, only theists do that and a desist is not a theist in spite of what you may believe to the contrary. You sound like an atheist, as a deist I have more in common with your view than most theists. Likely you are agnostic because it is the only logical view on this type of thing. You have chosen to put your faith in random accident as to the creation of the universe, the evolution of life, etc. I have chosen to place my faith in some higher intelligence behind it.

      But I bet we both say, “but I could be wrong, if you show me proof of that I will change my position”. Instead we both look at evidence (evidence is not proof) and draw a conclusion of belief (that is a faith and why I consider atheism a faith).

      Ask an atheist to explain abiogenesis and push hard enough and they admit they don’t know how the hell it happened. But they say they don’t need to know to well……..believe it……because their logic and reason leads them to conclude it is most likely.

      Now if you have proof of abiogenesis, please do provide it to me, I’d love to see it.

      Do you see how similar our views really are?

      Neither of us claims to know who/what God is. You just think there is no God and I do, and actually for very similar reasons. Your questions may trouble a theist but they are not troubling to me at all.
