Now come to the Big Question “Is there a God
”. In the words of one of the greatest minds “The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. May I not reply with a parable? The human mind, no matter
how highly trained, cannot grasp the universe
. We are in the position of a little child, entering a huge library whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different tongues. The child knows that someone must have written those books. It does not know who or how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order, which it does not comprehend, but only dimly suspects. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of the human mind, even the greatest and most cultured, towards God. We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations”
Empirical arguments against the existence of God
There is a long history of debate on the non existence and existence of God. I am presenting you all this case in simplest words so that an average mind can also understand. This prelude for understanding God and His kingdom is much lengthy and will come again and again in between my coming programs. A brief summary of arguments against the existence of God includes Empirical arguments such as argument from inconsistent revelations which negates the existence of God because of contradictions between different scriptures, within a single scripture, and between scriptures and known facts. The second argument is the problem of evil which negates the existence of a god who is both omnipotent and omni benevolent by arguing that such a god should not permit the existence of evil or suffering. The third empirical argument is about the destiny of the nonbelievers, by which persons who have never even heard or got a chance to read a particular revelation might be harshly punished for not following its commands.Than comes the argument from poor design which contests the idea that God created life on the basis that lifeforms, including humans, seem to exhibit poor design as is the case of 99% of life extinctions on earth during ice ages and the destruction and time taken to produce a planet like earth.The fifth empirical argument is argument from non belief which negates the existence of an omnipotent God who wants humans to believe in him by arguing that such a god could do a better job of converting collecting and gathering believers. Than comes the arguments that the burden of proof for the existence of God lies with the theist rather than the atheist. Russell’s teapot and Occam’s Razor based analogies are used to explain this argument.
Than there are many deductive arguments one of which is a counter-argument to the argument from design which states that a complex or ordered structure must be designed. This counter arguments states that if God is the creator of this universe He should be more or equally complicated as the universe that it creates. Therefore, He too must require a creator or designer which would require another designer also uptil infinity. Thus the argument for the existence of God is a logical fallacy with or without the use of special pleading. Than there is omnipotence paradox (
