Thesis StatementWritten by: Dennis Mitchell Sweatt
Summary – In this theory paper I will try to substantiate that the concept of atheism is provably a more cogent and functionally logical presumption than the caprice of any theology.
Genesis 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
God cannot make A, B.
God is not infallible.
Misguided fundamentalism has been proven to destroy progress. (Al Qaeda)
Progress is why we no longer kill for transgressions against god, or burn witches.
- Is morality independent of god?
- How can morality come from god and yet we still have free will?
- How can we have free will if it given to us?
- Does truth need god to function?
"We can know God only through His works. We cannot have a conception of any one attribute but by following some principle that leads to it. We have only a confused idea of His power, if we have not the means of comprehending something of its immensity. We can have no idea of His wisdom, but by knowing the order and manner in which it acts. The principles of science lead to this knowledge; for the Creator of man is the Creator of science, and it is through that medium that man can see God, as it were, face to face." - Thomas Paine
