Challenge Response: Just One Fewer God

Posted: February 23, 2012 by Brett Kunkle in God is Real, Weekly Challenge

Atheists will claim that they and theists are actually BOTH atheists.  The theist is an atheist about all other gods beside their own and therefore, there’s really no big difference between theism and atheism, just that the atheist believes in one less god.  Is this a real challenge for theists?  Here’s my response:

  1. “I contend that we are both bachelors. I just have one fewer wife than you do.”

    Just thought of this point, not a hugely brilliant one but might be worth a mention.

    From the initial post:

    “In other words, each religious person on earth today arbitrarily rejects thousands of gods as imaginary, many of which he/she has never even heard of, and arbitrarily chooses to “believe” in one of them….. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

    So according to the atheist I reject all other Gods arbitrarily and therefore he rejects my God arbitrarily as well. So why is his position superior again?
