What “Proof of God” justifies your position? (part four)

This is part four of a four-part series. So God isn’t omnipotent. He’s still the Creator. When believers say, “God is beyond understanding, beyond definition,” they don’t really mean it. At the very least, I would say, there is one characteristic that provides a very clear definition of God: “God is the entity that can…


What “Proof of God” justifies your position? (part three)

This is part three of a four-part series. Is God all-knowing? Well, this is absurd on so many levels. If God was all-knowing then why were Adam and Eve punished (kicked out of the Garden of Eden) for eating of the forbidden fruit? Didn’t God see that one coming? Is it fair to punish someone…


What “Proof of God” justifies your position? (part two)

This is part two of a four-part series. What is the nature of the Abrahamic God? Besides creating the universe and life, what does He do? What are His superpowers? There have been many secondary claims made about the Abrahamic God: He is variously claimed to be omniscient, omnipotent, and omnibenevolent (all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving). These…

It turns out that a diversity of approaches has been taken to defining the meaning, scope, and purpose of apologetics. From Apologia to Apologetics The word “apologetics”…


Jehova, The Immoral God

Jehova, The Immoral god The bible tells us not to kill, not to covet, not to be jealous, yet throughout the Old Testament there is an evil monster doing just that. Let me introduce Jehovah, the immoral god of the bible. He is a jealous god by his own admission and jealousy, in its very…


Why do Christians and Muslims Reject Evolution?

Evolution is supported by strong evidence and is a widely accepted scientific theory, so why do some Christians and Muslims still reject it? Firstly I would like to point out that not all Christians and Muslims reject evolution. Some even go as far to say it is metaphorically described in the Bible and Qur’an. Even…


Is God A Psychopath?

Is God a Psychopath? Firstly we have to define what it is that we are talking about. The God being addressed in this article is the Abrahamic God of the Bible, and as such, Biblical scripture and commonly held Christian beliefs will be used as evidence to support the case being presented. The term Psychopath…


Common Theistic Fallacies

In this article we will address some of the common Fallacies that are used by Theists in arguments. An important point to be made about fallacies is that it does NOT automatically mean that someone is wrong. It means that the formulation of their argument is wrong, and that we can dismiss that argument until…


Broken chains: addressing salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus

Addressing salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus Salvation through the blood of Jesus, or simply through the sacrifice of Jesus seems to be accepted without question. In the early bible we see the Jewish people had competing religions fighting for membership, with the Bible authors denouncing the abomination of sacrificing the first born child by…
