“… if evolutionary naturalism can cause a person to believe that which is false (such as religiously oriented beliefs) in order to promote survivability, then what confidence can evolutionists muster that their convictions are reliable, true beliefs?  And if evolution cannot guarantee true beliefs in a person’s mind then how does one know that belief in evolutionary naturalism itself is a true belief about the world?”

On the terms of the New Atheists, the very concept of rationality becomes nonsensical.

Naturalism, simply put, leaves us no reason whatsoever to think that any of our beliefs are reliable… such as a belief in naturalism.

1. Atheism leads to determinism.

2. Determinism denies that we are rational agents, that reasons affect our thinking, and that we can choose to change our minds.

3. Therefore atheism leads to the denial of reason.

It certainly is reasonable to suggest that if there is a God, He would make available to us evidence adequate to the task of proving His existence.  But does such evidence exist?  And if it does, what is the nature of that evidence?

The Argument from Reason

… one cannot accept both a materialist worldview and the claim that someone has reached the conclusion that materialism is true on the basis of argument only if mental states exist as a matter of physical structure.

Without presupposing the existence of God, one cannot account for analytic assessments.

2012 “Reason” Rally:

Richard Dawkins, P.Z. Myers and other New Atheists [held] a ‘Reason Rally’ in Washington, D.C. on March 24.  They [billed] it as ‘the largest gathering of the secular movement in world history,’ and they [used] it to trumpet their message that reasonable people reject belief in God.

[ Nobody Important  was there.]

[Really.]

Reasoning on Atheistic “Reasoning”

http://www.scribd.com/doc/86529353

[That brief was compiled by  Nobody Important  and offered to many atheists at the March 24, 2012 “Reason” Rally in Washington, D.C..  You could count on one hand the number atheists who were open-minded enough to even look at it, let alone take it with them and examine the evidence it (and the e-book from which it was compiled) presented.]

[Hmm…]
