Which one is correct?

Of course, atheists say that all religions are all wrong. And because there are so many religions, atheists say there is no way of knowing which one would be correct even if one of them was correct. Well, that is a patently stupid thing to say.

Atheists, while confused on many things, are here confusing the difficulty of finding truth with the ability or possibility of finding truth. While the existence of many religions necessitates work and diligence in assessing their credibility, that is no excuse for saying that truth doesn’t exist or that it can’t be discerned.

Certainly different world-views give us different understandings of the human dilemma and its solutions. But to say that knowing opposing views eliminates the possibility of a solution existing or that we cannot not discover that solution is again, simply wrong. Nor does it mean that there’s nothing wrong with us. This flies in the face of atheism which is perhaps the least humble and most judgmental of all world-views.

Christianity, in my opinion, is the only world-view that accurately describes our problem and it is the only world-view that provides a solution - a solution that begins with our Creator, is carried out with our permission and is brought to completion by our Creator.

Right, Christianity is distinct among the world's religions.

Of course I created that problem. Plus I choose who to save and who to damn. But hey, I'm the biggest and mightiest so what I say goes.

"This flies in the face of atheism which is perhaps the least humble and most judgmental of all world-views."

Humble? Most religions are the opposite of humble! The Creator of the entire universe (Me) loves ME! I prefer an atheist, they ain't always bugging me for stuff.

Define humble - if you can.

God 777 said...

'tis the opposite of haughty.

Sal thinks he's better than other people. Do you see that as humble or non judgmental?

God 777 said...

Points to ponder. (I already know the answers)

Do you think your beliefs are more correct than other people's beliefs?

Do you think I'm humble and non-judgmental?

Is my son humble and non-judgmental? Really?

I've got about a billion muslims who disagree with your post.

I think my post explains that one billion of anything has nothing to do with truth.

"While the existence of many religions necessitates work and diligence in assessing their credibility, that is no excuse for saying that truth doesn’t exist or that it can’t be discerned."

"to say that knowing opposing views eliminates the possibility of a solution existing or that we cannot not discover that solution is again, simply wrong."

And my point is a devout muslim could easily give a few paragraphs as to why islam is the correct religion, with the same conviction.

Makarios said...

And my point is, so what?

Nothing was written about Mo / Islam until 300 years after his death. There was no mention of his miracles until 400 years after Mo's death.
