[quote:Don'tBeAfraid:MV8yMTI2NzkzXzM1OTIyMjkxX0FGNUEwOEI4] Another proof for the existence of God: http://www.philosophyofreligion.info/theistic-proofs/the-moral-argument/the-perfectionist-moral-argument/ "The Perfectionist Moral Argument (1) We ought to be morally perfect. (2) If we ought to be morally perfect, then we can be morally perfect. (3) We cannot be morally perfect unless God exists. Therefore: (4) God exists." Kant's moral argument for God: http://www.philosophyofreligion.info/theistic-proofs/the-moral-argument/the-kantian-moral-argument/ "Kant’s Moral Argument (1) Moral behaviour is rational. (2) Morality behaviour is only rational if justice will be done. (3) Justice will only be done if God exists. Therefore: (4) God exists. Moral Behaviour is Rational Moral behaviour, Kant is adamant, is rational behaviour; we have good reason to be moral. This is a fundamental principle of morality: if you ought to do something then you have a reason to do it. It makes no sense to say “I see that I ought to give money to charity, but I have no reason to.” If we ought to do something then that is a reason to do it. What is more, a moral reason is always a stronger reason for doing something than any other reason. If we have a moral reason to do a thing, and another reason not to do it, then rationally speaking we ought to do it. Moral behaviour is always rational. Moral Behaviour is Only Rational if Justice Will be Done" [/quote]
Let's get right to it.
No one can prove that "God" or any variation thereof the concept is real.
No one can prove that "God" or any variation thereof the concept is NOT real.
All arguments are moot without assuming a "given".
How can I say all this with certainty?
BECAUSE NO ONE CAN PROVE THAT THEY'RE NOT DREAMING RIGHT NOW, with fabricated memories and all.
No matter what, FAITH is required just to participate in whatever you think is reality.
Both atheists and God-believers base their beliefs on FAITH in experiential data.
A true atheist "lacks a belief" and that is a perfectly honest position to hold. However, the rabid atheists who argue endlessly that "there is no God" are taking the same leap of faith that the proselytizing Christians are.
SO--is there a GOD?
My experiential data (a near-death experience that was seemingly as "real" as anything else I've experienced) says YES.
That's why I believe in God.
But I'd be a liar if I said that my NDE provides "proof"--even to myself. After all, my dreams are as "real" as anything even when I'm walking on the ceiling and lightsaber fighting and flying a MIG--all with a head full of outlandish memories.
So...all of you know-it-alls arguing FOR or AGAINST the concept of "God" need to
because your arguments ARE DEMONSTRABLY FLAWED.
