The following paper will provide a sound argument in favor of the
existence of God. By demonstrating that an Atheist world cannot account for the
preconditions of the laws of logic an Atheist cannot even account for a rational
debate concerning the existence of God.
"The impossibility of the contrary", the best and only proof that the
nesesary truth of the existence of God is his revelation of himself to us that
makes it possible for us to use logic. This could be translated, using only
nessesary truths, into the form of:
L: (laws of logic)
G: (God exists)
if L entails G
Logic is "the laws of reasoning that God has established." If
God has established these laws of reasoning that we call logic then how could
the Atheist system account for the laws of logic. First they are immaterial and
universal, and how could anything immaterial and universal be accounted for in a
naturalistic (matter only) universe. Second if God has established these laws of
reasoning then there would be no atheism. An Atheist wants to believe in laws of
logic which are universal in application, but in order to escape the ultimate
implications of this idea ( there is a God who imposes universal standards of
reason.), the Atheist will try to maintain that the "laws of logic" are merely "
conventions" of general agreement amongst them. This is philosophically non-
acceptable, if logic were simply a matter of convention, it would be impossible
to have any kind of rational debate because either side could win by simply
stipulating different laws of logic by convention. Therefore since universal
laws cannot be changed by convention since they hold constant in all possible
worlds is it not fair to say then that there is a God who imposes universal
standards of reason. [continues]
