Challenge for Atheists
I have something I like to throw out there for atheists to get their logic/philosophy/viewpoint. This thread is philosophical, not scientific.
Science admits that it does not comment on what it cannot test (including other dimensions like heaven, and including what created matter itself so that there cold be a big bang, assuming that theory is accurate). Science only comments on the physical, and admits that it only theorizes on the origin of all things, because with out witnessing it first hand, one cannot know something for certain. Atheists choose to believe there is no God, and have no proof to show this, Agnostics simply choose to not make a choice and don’t know if there is a God, and Theists choose to believe in a God without physical evidence.
Logical Deduction About Origin:
Everything (except one thing) must have a beginning. And if everything has a beginning, it must have been created. And if it was created, it must have a creator. What is created is not eternal (ie. - Has not always existed). The source of all things must be eternal in nature, having always existed (otherwise, he/it too would have been created by something else). Therefore, philosophically, there must be an eternal creator who has always existed, that created everything and is all powerful.
How is it possible for someone to get around this fact? Explain how everything exists without having something or someone to cause the existence.
