A ‘True Fundamentalist’ UpdateApril 21, 2007
Back on March 30th, I commented on Honjii’s blog saying:
So if I can’t use God to determine or prove anything (because of ‘Circular Reasoning’), then you can’t use reason.
Meaning, if I believe something because God says so, then what’s wrong with that? You believe something because ‘reason’ tells you so, what’s the difference? We both believe that a ‘higher power” (God and Reason) determines what we know. Let’s both use that.
On April 1st, Simen of import Mind.Reason made a post of his own mocking calling me a “true fundamentalist.”
I then proceeded to partake in a discussion with Simen (aided by Allison, a regular SW Reader) on my comment.
Simen evaded our questioning and refuesed to answer several of our questions – including the original question, “If Athiests can use reason to prove something, then why can’t Theists use God to prove something?”
I asked Simen that very question (with some word variation) seven times out of eight comments – and he still never answered it. Even when I said:
And since you still haven’t answered my original question, I assume you don’t have a response to it but don’t want to acknowledge that I’m right.
So why can’t I use God to prove things when you can use reason to prove things?
he still didn’t answer the question, said I’m “dead wrong,” and still didn’t answer my question.
I can see where he’s coming from, but to flat out not answer a question just seems a bit extreme.
Pray for him.
