Science, Reason, Faith


When I first started this website, my blog and my Newsletter were one and the same. I used this section of my website to write articles, and to share thoughts and content with my fans.

Now that GreenSlugg has grown, I still plan to write a few blog posts here and there as I go, but overall this blog page will be taking a backseat to my Email Newsletter, Medium Profile and other platforms.

This is a good thing! By using multiple platforms, I have a lot more tools to create more content, and a lot of potential to reach a a much wider audience.

For those of you who are interested, please subscribe to my Newsletter, feel free to connect with me on other platforms, and let me know what you think of my content!

Amazing refutation of a common atheist argument

Posted by GreenSlugg Muse on Saturday, October 8, 2016

I don't know who the Mark Moore person is who made this quote originally, but I am very grateful. It is well spoken, and well reasoned, and it really gets to the heart of the matter.

Amazing refutation of a common atheist argument:

"What if "the one I happened to be raised in as a child" is the largest faith on earth? And it's the largest for a reason, and the competitors are not that close? This meme supposes that it is reasonable to believe that the Greek Gods or Pokemon or whatever that thing was on Easter Island have an equal chance to be the God of Creation. I call total B.S. on that presupposition. If Odin was a rational possibility of who God was then hisreligion would not have remained practiced by one nation-group and tossed in the ash-heap of history.

If there is a God, and He has made historical contact with mankind then there is really only one reasonable candidate- the God of Abraham. So pick which Abrahamic faith makes the most sense, because they are #1, #2, and #10 in the world's largest religions. #3 is Hinduism but that is only because it is dominant in one very populous, and wretched, nation. World-wide it is a non-factor. #4 on the list is "Chinese folk religions". Clearly these represent bastions of ignorance and not reasonable candidates for who God is.

The argument only made sense thousands of years ago when competing faiths first started colliding. The rational candidate list is now down to three- all Abrahamic faiths. One of them based on ethnicity, one of them propped up by the sword, and the other true."
