Daylight Atheism 4: One More Burning Bush

12/17/2012

Lee goes through a basic argument from reasonable belief or divine hiddenness. He argues that an all good God would have every reason to reveal himself like he had in the Old Testament. The fact that God does not do so in any clear way is evidence against His existence.

He then answers common objections, like the free will, faith arguments. I’m impressed how succinctly Lee is able to cover two rounds of the debate. I think his arguments make sense, but once again, mostly in terms of the Abrahamic Gods. His scope is more limited than he had said in the beginning.

Quote of the Chapter: the frequency of miracle claims seems to decline in direct proportion to our ability to test them (89).
