Q58. (Archived Wednesday, 23-Aug-2006, 10:07 pm. iFAQ, God, evidence, 1.2, g.07) Top

    How can an athiest say there is no proof that God exists?

    Sometimes atheists assert that there is no proof that God exists. The only problem is that an atheist cannot logically make that claim.

    In order to state that there is no proof for God's existence, the atheist would have to know all alleged proofs that exist in order to then state that there is no proof for God's existence. But, since he cannot know all things, he cannot logically state there is no proof for God's existence.

    As a Christian, I think it's extremely important to do your research. After all, the Bible does state, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, MIND and strength." Sounds to me like the unbelievers haven't done THEIR research.
