How Arguments For the Existence of God Work

In science we would call this invalid inference.

In apologetics, they call it "argument"


"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.

Atheism isn't a lot like religion at all. Unless by "religion" you mean "not religion". --Ciarin

I've seen this comic before

I've seen this comic before in a lecture given by Michael Schermer. I think it was TED, but it might on the Skeptics site. Can't remember.


True, though. 

A place common to all will be maintained by none. A religion common to all is perhaps not much different.
