Logic: A-theism Validates Theism

Theism:
The belief in the existence of God as the Creator of the universe, intervening in it and sustaining a personal relation to his creatures

Atheism:
Disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God

I woke up this morning and thought to myself that I certainly do not believe that there is a green and black monster with horns who dwells under my bed

In fact, I am so absolutely certain that a green and black monster with horns does not exist at all that I decided I should make a poster that says just that and hold it up high in the air for everyone to see.

I would stop bystanders at the bus stop and tell them about the fact that green and black monsters with horns do not exist.

As I I ride the bus, I will assert to everyone I meet:
“green and black monsters with horns do not exist”

I will even make a shirt to wear which will say:
“Green and black monsters with horns???
Get real!”

 

Now you might think that would be a very silly thing for me to do.

 

 

But my question is why do you think it would be silly?

Could it be that if I really believed that something did not exist, and that belief was in fact true, then it would be nonsensical for me to go around telling people about it’s nonexistence.

 

What exactly is Atheism again?

 

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him,

but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Romans 1:18-21

 

Lack of evidence?

Or suppression of evidence???

 

Let no one deceive you,

 

Trust JESUS!

  1. Imagine that everybody believed in that monster, there were even constitutions written with keeping the freedom of the belief in monster in mind. People were killed and suppressed just because they didn’t believe in that monster.

    Well, then telling everybody about the non-existence of that monster would have been really meaningful.

    • Thanks for the comment.

      But that conclusion only makes sense if your measure of Christendom and Judeo-Christian teachings are based on falsely prefessing Christians (which are no Christians at all) or the actual teachings of Jesus Christ from the Bible.

      Here’s a short read straight from the source. Otherwise all we’ll ever be arguing is our personal opinions and have nothing by which to measure the validity of truth against.

      God bless,

      • Actually,

        The fact that you think that your point should even be considered speaks to the intrinsic nature that all human beings hold that we were all created with some idea of morality.

        And since we know that morality cannot be the natural imputation of a person who evolved from an ape, and before that, a spore? Cosmic bacteria? (or whatever other non-theistic belief you may hold) we then can deduce that it must’ve been imputed by some outside source.

        So your very desire to dispute the truth I assert, and the fact that I feel inclined to allow you to voice your opinion out of respect to you, just serves to further prove my point that we all live in accordance with my worldview, although many do so while rejecting the very facts of the reality they live in.

        God bless,

      • I actually never raised any concern about morality. You said atheism validates theism as no a-monsterist goes on telling people why he doesn’t believe in monsters, but atheists go on telling people why they do not believe in God, that means God is something special.

        I responded by saying that if the belief in monster in popular, it is related to social matters, then if you feel it is nonsense, telling people about how it is nonsense is reasonable.

        I can argue for hours regarding ethics under theism and non-theism, but that’s not the point. The point is if telling people about the nonexistence of God is legitimate. I claim it is, and not because God is logically or philosophically special, not because God is a moral base, but because the belief in God has direct social and personal effects.
