General Off-Topic Board / Re: Science vs Religion
« on: June 21, 2007, 04:16:13 PM »
Science and religion each provide knowledge, justified true belief. Are you asking which of the disciplines we should trust if/when they conflict?

122
No. Not really. Should there be?

Wait, you want to discuss Hume's design theory. Right?

Hume was critical of arguments from design to God. We started to talk about this before they locked the devil thread. We can still talk about it if you like.

123
That's what he said on the matter. Is there a question or argument in there somewhere?

124
No need to unlock the devil thread. Just open a separate thread on Hume. He's worth talking about. Should be fun.

I apologize for boring and annoying you.

I seek to hold as many reasonable beliefs as I may which will undoubtedly come off as "pompous" to those who prefer lunch to reason.

Don't argue dingo on this point.  He's right here.  Of course God could have a reason to allow evil.  Argue with him on his original argument, which was idiotic.

What don't you like about my moral argument? Start with your least favorite element. Please be as clear and precise as you may.

What do you say to Hume's design argument?

In order for you to properly evaluate my response to Hume you must first know what Hume is saying. I don't know whether or not you understand Hume since anyone can copy and paste from wikipedia. In the interest of fruitful discussion, please represent Hume's argument in your own words. I will then respond to what you write. Consider this move a way to reduce potential confusion.

For Dingo, trying to prove that God does exist, you're going to fail.

I'm not trying to prove God's existence. But I will argue that his existence is more probable than not. If, for example, any moral or cosmological or design argument for God is both valid and sound, and there are many for each kind and many more kinds still, then it is more reasonable than not to think God is real.

To clarify, if we start on the question of God with a blank slate then if a single argument for God is both valid and sound then we are justified at that point in our search to think God is real since we would by then have a preponderance of the evidence in God's favor.

1. the underlined claim is nonsense.  burden of proof is on you.

What do I have the burden to prove, exactly?
