The Law of Logic

Of course most educated people understand that Laws of Logic as well as Laws of Mathematics exist

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics exist regardless of whether humans agree with them

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics existed before anything evolved

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics existed before humans evolved

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics are not formulated or devised

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics are discovered

Where did they come from?

The Laws of Logic and Mathematics, like the exquisitely finely tuned constants and quantities that govern the functioning of our universe, were present at the Singularity, put in prior to Planck time.

How did they get there?

Who did it?

The atheist answer?

Something non intelligent placed intelligence so great it's beyond our imagination into our logical and mathematically precise universe.

A few posts back I guessed you were reading William Lane Craig!

Anyway, one view is these "laws" are very high level empirical propositions. Which makes the question "where did they come from?" nonsensical.
The laws of logic are descriptive not prescriptive.

Your god makes no sense therefore I doubt that he made sense.

Youre leaving out "Your God makes no sense to me, at this moment, at this point of my life". There are plenty of theists worldwide who think that He "makes sense".

Indeed there are. Some are called Muslims.

Do they make sense?

Some are called Jews.

How about them? They make sense to you?

Hindus? They make any sense to you? Howabout all the aboriginal gods still worshiped? The Pagan gods?

No? Well if your god makes sense why can't their gods makes sense?

There are also plenty of Scientologists worldwide, do they make sense?

See if a billion people do a silly thing? It's still a silly thing.

Ya, they're descriptive of what exists, descriptive of how the universe that set prior to Planck time. The laws of logic are discovered, not formulated.
