Is belief in God, as Richard Dawkins claims, a delusion. Are atheists smarter or more. Ultimately, if God exists then belief in him is rational. If he does not exist, then it isn’t.

Likewise, if he does exist then not believing in him is supremely irrational. So, it comes down to whether or not God exists. Does he. Of course he does. Let’s think rationally for a bit. There are only two options to work with: God and no God. Yest, it is rational to believe in God.

We all believe in things that others have told us are true even though we often do not have the knowledge or skills to confirm or refute these things. In fact, we would be unable to live rationally if we did not accept as true most of the things we believe.

God and Other Minds is a book by the American philosopher of religion Alvin Plantinga which re-kindled philosophical debate on the existence of God in Anglo-American philosophical circles by arguing that belief in God was like belief in other minds: although neither could be demonstrated conclusively against a determined sceptic both were fundamentally rational.

Belief in belief is the notion that religious belief has positive benefits and should be fostered or tolerated, without the need to subscribe to the belief in question.

In western societies this is commonly expressed in cases where people feel that religious belief brings comfort and moral guidance. tic beliefs are rational in ways similar to our nontheistic beliefs. I view this idea as important to our understanding of theistic belief and its rationality.

But to which nontheistic beliefs are theistic be­ liefs similar. My thesis is that beliefs about God are just as rational as beliefs about human persons, rather than beliefs about non­.

This is the third, and hence final, book in "the warrant trilogy." Here Plantinga begins by looking into the de jure question, viz., is it rational, reasonable, justified, warranted, to accept Christian belief.

Or, is the Christian epistemologically negligible for accepting such beliefs - belief in God, belief in the great truths of the Gospel, etc?/5. Pascal's wager is an argument in philosophy presented by the seventeenth-century French philosopher, mathematician and physicist, Blaise Pascal (–).

It posits that humans bet with their lives that God either exists or does not. Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. Many people think that faith and reason are opposites; that belief in God and tough-minded logical reasoning are like oil and water.

They are wrong. Belief in God is far more rational than atheism. Logic can show that there is a God. If you look at the universe with common sense and an open mind, you'll find that it's full of God's fingerprints.

necessary evidence for rationality of belief in God, aqreeinq with Enliqhtenment thinkers that theistic belief is rational only when such a belief is warranted by sufficient evidence. This position, aptly called theistic evidentialism, embraces the Enliqhtenment conception of reason and arques that.

That object is God. The Moral Argument: God is the best explanation for the reality and objectivity of morality. The Argument from Reason: the rationality of logic and evidence is only possible on the presupposition of God.

These arguments, along with others focusing more directly on Christianity, will be covered in future : John Danaher. A belief is rational if it is held on the basis of reason and logic, rather than on the basis of emotion or pragmatism.

He would confess the same later in a debate with the Christian mathematician, John Lennox. And even philosophers who reject his theism say his arguments for the basic rationality of belief, laid out in books like “Warranted Christian Belief” and “God and Other Minds,” constitute.

Some people really do believe in this version of God: supporters of 'intelligent design', for example – for whom Hart reserves plenty of scorn – and other contemporary Christian and Muslim.Belief in God, according to atheists, is irrational, illogical, and dumb.
