The God Claim Myth


The first trap the theist falls into is the myth that God is a claim. And since it is a claim, the atheist says, the theist now has been positioned to carry the burden of proving that claim. For the atheist, this positioning is advantageous because no criteria has been established on what is or isn’t proof. Therefore, the atheist merely needs to reject it, an easy task for the ill-intentioned.

The notion that the existence of God, a supreme Being and Creator, need not be a claim anymore than reality is a claim. For most theists, God is the greater reality and what we perceive to be reality is now only a temporary state. When the atheist then asks what the proof for this greater reality is, the theist merely needs to demand atheist prove reality exists without committing and type of fallacy. This will be impossible for the atheist because any proof of reality requires use of reality as evidence. The atheist falls into a cyclical conundrum. The more accomplished atheismist realizes this problem while the foolhardy atheismist persists in proclaiming evidence of reality doesn’t presuppose itself.

Put more succinctly – The concept of God supersedes the concept of reality in the mind of the theist. The atheist is satisfied with mundane material as the end all and be all, unable to prove that reality exists while defiantly establishing an entire worldview based on that unprovability – others would call it a delusion.
