5 Reasons Why Atheism Fails Intellectually - Part 1

Though Atheism seems to be the intellectual fad of the day in many American and European academic circles, is it possible that this worldview is actually logically self-defeating?  Is it reasonable to think that this "Problematic Perspective" of Atheism is intellectually untenable?

Well, as we'll begin to see in this 3 part series investigating Atheism, this infamous worldview is full of contradictions, logical inconsistencies, and blind metaphysical assumptions.

Tune in, take notes, and learn the weaknesses of Atheism....

The 7 Concepts of GOD (pt.2) - "What is Atheism?"

Worldview #1 - Atheism:  

"There is no God!'

The word "atheism" comes from two Greek words, "a" and "theos", which mean respectively "no" and "God". So quite literal sense atheism is the definite and positive denial of the existence of God. Don't let anybody fool you into thinking that atheism is simply "the lack of a belief in any God." This is a recent attempts by some newer atheists to avoid having to justify their worldview, and explain it logically. Once properly understood "atheism" means a person claims to have positive knowledge and a definite belief that "God doesn't exist."

The Concept of God

Firstly, I would like to say that, despite the fact that I'm agnostic, you are one of my heroes. In all of the debates that I've watched, you've been the sole provider clarity and rigor to the discussion.

My question regards whether or not your definition of "God" is a proper definite description. Among other things, he's posited as a being which is omnipotent and omniscient. However, is there good reason to think that there are upper-bounds on power and knowledge, so as to allow this to be feasible?

A Single Idea Proves GOD's Existence?!?

Where do the Laws of Logic originate from?

Why do the Axioms of Mathematics exists in the Universe?

How can we explain the origin of eternal, immutable, necessary truths?

(pt.1 of 1)

This is the latest installment in our series"Good Arguments for God's Existence", which is drawing upon classical arguments from Natural Theology. This is surely one of the most interesting and thought provoking arguments for the existence of a Divine Being, namely, the Conceptualist Argument. The Conceptualist Argument seeks to demonstrate that it's more plausible than not to believe in God's existence, based upon the existence of necessary, immutable, eternal truths in the universe (logic, mathematics, morality, etc..), for which the only sufficient explanation is an Omniscient Mind in which to ground and sustain them - God. 

If one does not believe in the existence of a Theistic God, then it is incumbent upon that person to explain how it is possible that certain immutable, eternal, logically necessary truths/ideas/concepts/abstract objects exist and are sufficiently grounded.

 In my view, atheism, materialism, naturalism, etc.... are completely unable to account for the existence and the grounding of these real concepts/truths that we appeal to and use every day of our human experience.  If a worldview (atheism, pantheism, panentheism, etc..) cannot adequately account for these features of our experience, it should be abandoned in favor of a worldview with more explanatory power and explanatory scope.  

Watch the short video, and think through the issues mentioned.  If you don't accept the Theistic/Christian explanation the existence of these necessary concepts/truths, then provide me with a more persuasive argument......in video format, not just a quick dismissive comment. Thanks.
