This young man, who may be a presuppositionalist, suggests that we must start with the Bible to know anything, including the laws of logic. Frank shows why that would be impossible. In fact, you need to know the laws of logic, and many other things, before you can even know what the Bible means.

    God is and therefore he is. Because he has made it so that we can know him and He is sovereign!

    In the beginning (time) God created the heaven (space) and the earth (matter). Heaven is singular not plural, that's one reason you should be using the KJV. And the earth was without form, and void (matter was there but formless).

    He's talking about the laws of logic? How about talking snakes, living to 900 Years Old, living in a whale's stomach, slavery, and parting of an entire sea? If he wants to take it on faith that's one thing, but you can't back it up with logic.

    I think Frank gave a good answer here, but it could've been better explained in a longer format.
    I love this ministry. Great video, keep up the good work.

    The more I watch these videos, the more I am understanding one thing: intellect is different from wisdom. One can be very intelligent and yet not be wise at all. This makes sense because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Proverbs 9:10

    here is a logical and pertinent question:
    Why didn’t/doesn’t/wouldn’t satan read scripture the way the world does and NOT do what is prophesied of him and make God and his word unreliable?

    0:24 – Why can we depend on laws of logic? (paraphrasing)
    Yes… It is something we can prove empirically, but
    what if we insist for a theoretical proof (which is how we can so strongly depend on math) ?

    To answer that question, find the answer to this sometime => Math is built on certain fundamental AXIOMS… Axioms cannot be proven but are asserted and used cuz it makes sense empirically.

    So, is MATH built on "theoretically" unproved statements????
    But still, math works like a charm always…
    Find out why math works though based on AXIOMS…. then we can be absolutely certain on depending on laws of logic without doubting 😉

    Was that a rhetorical question cemented in skepticism regarding how to validate using the laws of logic as valid to reason that God is reasonable ?

    It's only not reasonable if "A" and non "A" are true in the same way at the same time…

    Was this dude trolling ?

    Kids don't do hyper skepticism and especially solipsism as an epistemology.

    Sigh…

    Hello. I am an atheist. I define atheism as suspending acknowledgement of the existence of gods until sufficient evidence can be presented. My position is that I have no good reason to acknowledge the existence of gods.

    And here is the evidence as to why I currently  hold to such a position.

    1. I personally have never observed a god.
    2. I have never encountered a person whom has claimed to have observed a god.
    3. I know of no accounts of persons claiming to have observed a god that were willing or able to demonstrate or verify their observation for authenticity, accuracy, or validity.
    4. I have never been presented a valid logical argument which also employed sound premises that lead deductively to a conclusion that a god(s) exists.
    5. Of the 46 logical syllogisms I have encountered arguing for the existence of a god(s), I have found all to contain multiple fallacious or unsubstantiated premises.
    6. I have never observed a phenomenon in which the existence of a god was a necessary antecedent for the known or probable explanation for the causation of that phenomenon.
    7. Several proposed (and generally accepted) explanations for observable phenomena that were previously based on the agency of a god(s), have subsequently been replaced with rational, natural explanations, each substantiated with evidence that excluded the agency of a god(s). I have never encountered vice versa.
    8. I have never experienced the presence of a god through intercession of angels, divine revelation, the miraculous act of divinity, or any occurrence of a supernatural event.
    9. Every phenomena that I have ever observed has emerged from necessary and sufficient antecedents over time without exception. In other words, I have never observed a phenomenon (entity, process, object, event, process, substance, system, or being) that was created ex nihilo – that is instantaneously came into existence by the solitary volition of a deity.
    10. All claims of a supernatural or divine nature that I have encountered have either been refuted to my satisfaction, or do not present as falsifiable.

    ALL of these facts lead me to the only rational conclusion that concurs with the realities I have been presented – and that is the fact that there is no good reason for me to acknowledge the existence of a god.

    I have heard often that atheism is the denial of the Abrahamic god. But denial is the active rejection of a substantiated fact once credible evidence has been presented. Atheism is simply withholding such acknowledgement until sufficient credible evidence is introduced. It is natural, rational, and prudent to be skeptical of unsubstatiated claims, especially extraordinary ones.

    I welcome any cordial response. Peace.

    I've never heard anyone utter the phrase "there is no truth" outside of an apologist's script.

    The laws of logic, which we humans have formulated (starting with people like Aristotle and others before him) show that the Bible is full of irrational, illogical nonsense. Just some simple logic shows the bible is full of scientific nonsense – eg Joshua stopping the rotation of the earth, somebody else making the earth spin backwards, Pi=3.0, plants growing before the sun was created. etc etc Plus some simple logic demonstrates the horrific moral inconsistencies in the bible – eg When Moses came down from the mountain he saw the golden calf, smashed it, got together a bunch of people with swords and told them to go through the camp where they indiscriminately slaughtered men, women and children. How was that consistent with the ten commandments? Plus some simple logic shows the mountains of contradictions in the bible – eg try to reconcile the genealogies in Matthew and Luke. A simple study of history will show that the bible is full of plagiarized legends, invented and distorted history – gospels written a century after the supposed Jesus, a thousand miles away, in a different language, with the sole purpose of pushing a certain theological narrative. etc etc etc !!!!

    ﴿ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا لِلَّذينَ كَفَرُوا امرَأَتَ نوحٍ وَامرَأَتَ لوطٍ كانَتا تَحتَ عَبدَينِ مِن عِبادِنا صالِحَينِ فَخانَتاهُما فَلَم يُغنِيا عَنهُما مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيئًا وَقيلَ ادخُلَا النّارَ مَعَ الدّاخِلينَ﴾ [التحريم: ١٠]
    Allāh presents an example of those who disbelieved: the wife of Noah and the wife of Lot. They were under two of Our righteous servants but betrayed them, so they [i.e., those prophets] did not avail them from Allāh at all, and it was said, "Enter the Fire with those who enter."
    – Saheeh International

    ﴿وَضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلًا لِلَّذينَ آمَنُوا امرَأَتَ فِرعَونَ إِذ قالَت رَبِّ ابنِ لي عِندَكَ بَيتًا فِي الجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّني مِن فِرعَونَ وَعَمَلِهِ وَنَجِّني مِنَ القَومِ الظّالِمينَ﴾ [التحريم: ١١]
    And Allāh presents an example of those who believed: the wife of Pharaoh, when she said, "My Lord, build for me near You a house in Paradise and save me from Pharaoh and his deeds and save me from the wrongdoing people."
    – Saheeh International

    ﴿وَمَريَمَ ابنَتَ عِمرانَ الَّتي أَحصَنَت فَرجَها فَنَفَخنا فيهِ مِن روحِنا وَصَدَّقَت بِكَلِماتِ رَبِّها وَكُتُبِهِ وَكانَت مِنَ القانِتينَ﴾ [التحريم: ١٢]
    And [the example of] Mary, the daughter of ʿImrān, who guarded her chastity, so We blew into [her garment] through Our angel [i.e., Gabriel], and she believed in the words of her Lord and His scriptures and was of the devoutly obedient.
