HAH! There’s a topic for you! I’ve been reading a book of that title which is a debate between Theists and Atheists, specifically between J.P. Moreland and Kai Nielsen with contributions by Peter Kreeft, Anthony Flew, William Lane Craig, Keith Parsons, and Dallas Willard. It’s heavy going for me in places — well, in quite a few places — but fascinating nethertheless.
My hope is to find reasons for not being an atheist, but I know I could never be a total theist. Kai Nielsen takes the atheist view and also he comes across as the most human and humble of the bunch. Too bad I can’t quite swallow his arguments. Dallas Willard is the theist I can almost agree with for most of his arguments, but then he loses me toward the end.
The big issue, or one of the big ones, is the problem of infinity, or of beginnings. We must have a beginning and yet we can’t really have one. A most ingenious paradox, a ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha, as it’s sung in a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
More later. This is a never ending topic….. from here to infinity? ðŸ˜•
