Multiple times theists will incorrectly turn the burden of proof over onto the atheist and say well prove to me that God does not exist. In this scenario, I am always eager to reply with the question, what god? Usually this claim is thrown at me by Christians, so I thought I would prove here and now why I hold the position that the Christian God does not exist. In fact, it is my opinion that anyone who reads this and follows the logic can conclude that the Christian God (now just God) does not exist.
As with all arguments, we have to accept some premise.
The premise I present is that the Bible is accurate, after all it is the word of God and as such it should be correct.
If you however, reject this premise, then you are either already an atheist, or you are a theist that knows how many lies exist that you will not accept that the bible is accurate. To this theist, I have just one question, "What do you believe if you do not believe the Biblical account?" To the atheist, I say well done.
If the Bible is correct then there are testable claims. If these claims fail the bible fails and god fails. If the bible claims pass the test then go passes the test of existence.
Claim 1. Pray and you shall receive. Mark 11:24 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
God Fails: Prayer studies have shown time and time again that prayers are not answered as they should be according to the bible.
Claim 2. The Israelites fled Egypt through the Red Sea parted by Moses. Exodus 14:21 "Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the
LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry
land. The waters were divided,"
God Fails Again: There is strong evidence that the Israelites never were enslaved in Egypt in the first place so the were seemingly no escaping as they were not there. Additionally, all so called evidence of chariots by the psedu-archeologist Ron Wyatt has been debunked and of course the evidence went missing. Seems rather handy for a fraudster.
Not looking good for God there on two strikes.
Claim 3: Jesus said he will be back in at least some of the the disciples time. Luke 9:27 "Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."
God Strike three you are out!
Unless I missed it, seems Jesus did not come back. As such you are the biggest loser of the week and you are forthwith stripped of your deity status. That same deity status that was all just good old magic tricks to cause confusion and cash stream anyway.
