Folks, a christian apologist claims in one of his posts that we atheists are not any different when it comes to cherry picking bible verses. I think I need help here, when is using a bible verse cherry picking? The accuser claims further that we [atheists] never venture out of the OT for fear of finding some teachings of Jesus we may not like for their moral value like when he curses a fig tree out of season or calls others brood of vipers or even worse in the sermon on the mount when he preaches it is blessed to be poor? Well, I got news for you. We don’t cherry pick.
Your accuser is here
In this post he claims talking about evidence with us is a waste of time. Last time we had the discussion on evidence with theists, it came down to see around you that is evidence of god and look at the bible it says it is the word of god and the bible is true because god says so in the bible. Beyond that all other evidence involved is quoting William L. Craig and Platinga, two apologists that it is my opinion their beliefs are far removed from the beliefs held by most other christians.
You know you are reading bad philosophy when you see an argument presented thus
. Matter cannot create itself. Matter cannot preexist itself. Matter cannot be eternal nor infinite
. Everything material that begins to exist has come into existence because of an external cause.. Matter is not eternal. An infinite regress of cause does not exist. Matter requires an eternal immaterial Creator
As things stand right now, atheists have no basis for the world-view that they hold.Atheists are simply believing what they believe on blind faith. And in this case, faith would mean, believing something in the teeth of the evidence to the contrary.
