Religious believers will often try to pin atheism as a minority compared with most of the world’s population that believes in god. This, however, is a huge misrepresentation of reality. It even conflicts with their own religious view of things. Pretty much every believer thinks that people who believe in other religions, let alone in… Read More Every Religion is in The Minority
The Argument Most of humanity is religious. In fact, the vast majority of the people who have ever lived on the planet have been religious. In every place, at every period, in every culture, people have come to understand that god exists. Why do you think you know better? Religious belief is a consensus. … Read More Debunking The “Most People Are Religious” Argument
Most religious believers never realize that in principle, a god that deserves thanks and praise for good things also deserves blame for bad things. To say that you cannot, even in principle, blame god for the bad he has done (or failed to prevent), logically means you cannot thank or praise him for the good.… Read More If You Can Thank God, You Can Also Blame Him
Absence of evidence for the existence of god is not evidence he doesn’t exist. You cannot prove god doesn’t exist. How to debunk it No, there is no evidence for god’s lack of existence because there’s no such thing as evidence for something’s lack of existence. Evidence can only support a positive claim. Speaking of… Read More How to Debunk The “Absence of Evidence Isn’t Evidence of Absence” Argument
How to debunk it This isn’t an argument, it’s a question—a perfectly good one, by the way. The problems start when people try to answer it with insufficient reason and evidence. There are those (mostly in the fields of theoretical physics and quantum physics) who are working on it, and there are some promising leads.… Read More Why is There Something Rather Than Nothing?
The Argument Why don’t you believe in God? What’s Wrong With It It’s not even an argument; just a loaded question that tries to suggest there’s something wrong with a lack of belief. Loaded questions of any sort need not be answered because doing so suggests you accept the false premise the question was loaded… Read More Why Don’t You Believe In God?
The argument There is only one god. How to debunk it The religious idea that you must have faith rather than depend on the constraints of reason and evidence opens the door to any and all deities. To then somehow restrict or channel faith into only one deity is to make a mockery of the… Read More How to Debunk Monotheism
Religions are full of supernatural claims and stories, many of which are the core of the religion itself. But the problem isn’t just that there’s no proof to support supernatural claims, it’s that the very idea that something can be deemed supernatural is impossible. If something actually happens, or happened, it is, to the extent… Read More How To Debunk All Supernatural Claims
The original Kalam cosmological argument was developed by Islamic scholars in medieval times based on the Aristotelian “prime mover” idea. It comprises two premises and one conclusion: Premise #1: Everything that has a beginning of its existence has a cause of its existence; Premise #2: The universe has a beginning of its existence; Therefore: Conclusion:… Read More How to Debunk The Kalam Cosmological Argument
How to Debunk It This is not even an argument, just an ad hominem accusation. Calling another person a fool gets you nowhere closer to proving that a supernatural deity exists. People who can’t support their religious claims and just revert to name-calling against those who disagree with them aren’t really worth debating. There isn’t… Read More The Fool Hath Said In His Heart – There Is No God
