Invalidating The Idea of God
Jun 28, 1998
Even_in today's secularized world, religion is a dominant cultural force. In order to advocate a philosophy of reason, therefore, one must be well-versed in the arguments for and against God's existence. This course explodes the arguments for God, demonstrating in detail the irrationality of religious belief. Mr. Garmong first discusses why the onus of proof is on the Believer. Next, he presents and refutes several common arguments for God, including: the argument from design, the ontological argument, and the "first cause" argument. Finally, he shows the impossibility of the existence of a God––and, indeed, the invalidity of the very concept "God."
