“IN THE BEGININING, human beings created a God who was the First Cause of all things and Ruler of heaven and earth.” Humans have created innumerable gods over our pin-head-sized history of existence. All across our planet and throughout our history there are conceptions of the supernatural that are varied and completely contradictory to each other. All religions involve some incorporeal idea has some power outside the realm of natural explanation.
But what is even more diverse than the huge variation in the definitions of god is the supposed ‘proofs’ that people throughout history have put forward to affirm that their god exists. Some of these ranging from the quite absurd to metaphysical headaches—but what they all have in common are that none of them can conclusively prove the existence of a god or gods.
Someone left a comment on one of my posts suggesting I read the logical arguments for the existence of god. I have read all the arguments and have to say I am unconvinced by them. I am going to run a series of posts showing my problems with them.
I will post the links to them here as I post them:
