The atheist test pt.5

Testets femte fråga ligger och vilar på ren onödighet.
Jag förstår inte riktigt syftet med den, då det bara är fjärde testet i en ny tappning.
Men men, here it goes.

testets femte fråga

I must know how many hairs are upon every head, every thought of every human heart, every detail of history, every atom within every rock…nothing is hidden from my eyes…I know the intimate details of the secret love life of the fleas on the back of the black cat of Napoleon's great grandmother. To make the absolute statement, "There is no God," I must have absolute knowledge that there isn't one. 

  Let's say that this circle represents all the knowledge in the entire universe, and let's assume that you have an incredible 1% of all that knowledge. Is it possible, that in the knowledge you haven't yet come across, there is ample evidence to prove that God does indeed exist? 

  If you are reasonable, you will have to say, "Having the limited knowledge I have at present, I believe that there is no God." In other words, you don't know if God exists, so you are not an "atheist," you are what is commonly known as an "agnostic." You are like a man who looks at a building, and doesn't know if there was a builder.


The man who sees a building and doesn't know if there was a builder is: 

  A. Intelligent 
  B. A fool 
  C. Has an ulterior motive

mitt svar

Att man inte kan vara ateist utan att ha absolut vetskap om guds icke existens, är bara ett korkat proklamerande. Du slänger med egen argumentation ut dig från religionen, för då kan du alltså heller inte vara religiös om du inte har absolut vetskap om att gud finns.

I stort säger femte testet ingenting som inte kan besvaras av dawkings sju-gradiga skala.
