Arguments in favor of God?
« on: September 28, 2009, 11:49:48 AM »
Do you think there is a need to give arguments in favor of God to disprove Atheism? By giving Arguments in favor of God, we are proving ourselves superior to God. He is the supreme power and there is no need to prove him by arguments and presenting facts. What ae your views?

how can you 'disprove' atheism. it's impossible. you can't prove god quantitatively exists, or even provide circumstantial evidence which isn't entirely based on the desire to believe that a 'god/creator' exists.
if all you see is 'suffering' then that is all you will feel. look for what is better in yourself and see only that.

My question was different that is there any need of presenting arguments in favor of God. Its almost impossible to negotiate negative points as there are certain things for whom its impossible to present live facts.

I don't think that the Creator needs any arguments in Its favor to prove or disprove anything. Since we can't prove that God exists, then regardless of the nature of the arguments presented, it will still remain as a question. I also don't understand why anyone should feel the need to present such arguments. Just like everyone else, atheists are allowed to believe and think whatsoever they wish - it's not up to anyone to try and convince them of God's existence.

I am perfectly agree with you. By presenting such needless arguments we are proving ourselves superior to the almighty and I don't think there is any such need.

Like muslims have their faith in Prophet, Christians have their faith in Jesus Christ,  Atheists also repose their faith in an unnamed force as no man can live without faith. So, their is no need to argue for or against God.

there can never be arguments for and against God, He is the supreme power and its so overwhelming. all of us have different beliefs and those beliefs whatever they are must be equally respected.

For certain things, you can't present any arguments. God is the supreme power and if you have a true faith in God, you can easily feel his presence around you.

Since one cannot prove that God exists just as one cannot prove that he does not exist, it is really a waste of breath arguing for or against. The best thing to do is to remain silent as the Buddha did.

If the Buddha did speak though, he would point to the source which some would box up and call "God".  Even though "it" resembles nothing to the mind created "God"  which people on here so vigorously want to disprove. 
The proof of "God" is simple.  Who creates your thoughts?  Did you create the thought I'm going to post on this spiritual website or did the thought come into your mind from somewhere and get interpreted by your mind-body and then down into your fingers to type?  And if none of us create the thoughts and are just vehicles which the thoughts come into, then how can we say "there is no "God""?

Argument in favor of God, for or against, is irrelevant to Divine Intelligence because it is unlikely that "She" would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt her existence.

Wow - there are an awful lot of pro-God comments for an Atheist thread! ;)

I think that the argument that God doesn't need to be proven because He is so Supreme is just another instance of religion using the "Untouchables Clause" - essentially it states "You can't question this because it's so far above you you wouldn't understand the answer".

The corollary used here is "God doesn't need us to defend Him because it would be insulting to Him".

Just one of many tricks of logic and debate that are used by religion to short-circuit discussion.
