ATHESIM – MORAL AND RELIGIOUS BELIEFS blog

God and the Moral Absolute

Our soul is our conscience and our pathway to God. Unless we seek that objective link and are grounded in its very existence to God, we will continue to hear and see with our eyes and ears, but never with our hearts. Our hearts and soul are the gateways to God’s Word, and the OT reminds us of that.
God and the Moral Absolutes anchored in him provide the path.

Platonism and Existentialism

We’ve been suggesting that the obvious truth of morality might provide evidence for God’s existence, as well as reason to think that this obvious truth depends ultimately on God. At first glance, such a claim might seem implausible, if not inconsistent. In particular, it might seem inconsistent to argue that moral… Read more “Platonism and Existentialism”

PHILOSOPHY & RELIGION

Both philosophy and religion are widely used concepts, yet defining them accurately can be challenging due to the wide range of meanings that each has acquired over time. Because religion is a derivative of an ancient Latin phrase that referred to the relationship that existed between man and the gods, most… Read more “PHILOSOPHY & RELIGION”

THE EVIDENCE OF REALITY

We do not wish to dissuade you from continuing to read this; yet, in the spirit of complete honesty, we should state that there is, in a sense, just one good reason to believe in God: it is true.There are numerous such evidences, but they all contribute to our understanding of… Read more “THE EVIDENCE OF REALITY”

GOD’S RATIONAL CHOICE

In the philosophy of Leibniz, the ultimate logical decision was God’s choosing of the finest of all worlds. God is both a necessary entity and author of the universe in that he creates the world that he considers the finest of all worlds. (Possible Worlds in the Tahâfut al-Falâsifa: Al- Ghazâlî… Read more “GOD’S RATIONAL CHOICE”

Nietzsche Struggles!

In several cases, Nietzsche termed himself a ‘psychologist’ instead of a ‘philosopher.’ What he meant has nothing to do with any behavioral science in the physical sciences. In the first section, Human, All Too Human, he utilizes the metaphor of ‘sublimation’ derived from physical chemistry to depict the conversion of the… Read more “Nietzsche Struggles!”

Nietzsche Within

It’s pointless to try to categorize Nietzsche’s ideas into standard philosophical categories like idealism or materialism, rationality or irrationalism. He is sometimes lumped in with the group of philosophers known as “existentialists.” This is an arbitrary and, in some ways, inaccurate category that has fallen out of favour as a result… Read more “Nietzsche Within”

Was Bertrand Russell an Atheist or an Agnostic?

Agnosticism is hardly a novel position, as it can be traced in the 20th century to philosophers like Russell, known to the public at large as “that atheist philosopher.” Yet agnosticism rarely, if ever, has received a sustained philosophical defense.

Distinguishing Atheism, Theism, and Agnosticism

What if it can be shown that there is a reasonable alternative to traditional Christian theism (on the one hand) and atheism (on the other)? Among other things, this would suggest that the defeat of orthodox Christian theism does not necessarily and in itself spell doom for theism.

The Argument Against Atheism

Free will is the notion that we independently undertake our actions and choices, and therefore are responsible for them. But at some point during our stay on the planet, we come upon the question of whether we are the true authors of our own actions. Is free will only an illusion? Are we unwitting pawns in a world of determinism” — a world where we take action not because of our own volition but because of all of the circumstances that led to that moment?
