Can atheism stand the test? The Cornerstone Church Kingston has a list of “10 Questions for Atheists” they believe atheists need to be able to answer if atheism is to be taken seriously. So, I have provided serious answers to their questions. Since I have already answered some questions at length in earlier articles, I have linked to those articles where appropriate. The ten main questions appear as the main section headings, and follow-up questions appear as subheadings.
The main problem with the question
Does God Exist? is that there are different ideas about what God is or could be. So I will examine multiple conceptions of God, not just one. If none of them stand up, then atheism will be justified, but if a single idea of God does stand up, even if all the rest fail, then some form of theism is justified, though it may be different from the theism you are accustomed to.
This post is for a video I made in 2011. I actually got answers from someone today, and I realized it would help to have a list of the questions asked in the video for my own reference, if nothing else. It may also prove useful to someone answering the questions.
A Christian website has posted ten questions for every atheist, which it maintains no atheist can truly and honestly answer. These are my answers.
In a podcast I listened to, a Christian maintained that God is required for scientific laws, and an atheist maintained that scientific laws are not as real as the Christian understood them to be. I disagree with them both, and here I explain why God is not required for the existence of scientific laws.
