Is Criticizing God or The Bible A Valid Argument Against Gods Existence? or “On The ‘There Is No God And I Hate Him” Part 2

December 19, 2014

I recently saw an argument I’ve seen many times before: “If God is so good why does He command genocide in the Bible?!”

I asked, as I always do, “how is that an argument against Gods existence?” More often than not I receive no answer. Other times it’s either irrelevant snark or an attempt to side-step by saying something like “That’s not meant to be an argument against God, it’s an argument against religion”.

Does that response make sense? Lets use deductive reasoning, where if the premises are true, then the conclusion naturally and necessarily follows.

P1) If the Christian religion entails a belief in the existence of God, and subsequent following of God, than arguing against the Christian religion is an argument against Gods existence.

P2) The Christian religion is a belief in the existence of, and subsequent following of God.

C) Therefore an argument against the Christian religion is an argument against Gods existence.

So we can therefore with all confidence ask “How is a criticism of Gods character, or Christian belief, an argument against Gods existence?”.
