The Irrationality of Theism

Religion and Theology
This is a counter paper about the belief in God.

The author argues that theism is irrational. Human behaviour, however, is not always based on reason, and the fact that an enormous number of people unquestioningly believe in the existence of God seems to support this. Therefore, the theists? beliefs must be based on something other than rationality. This basis is faith.

“Belief in the existence of God is irrational. Ontological, cosmological and teleological arguments can all be proven to be logically flawed. In addition, the existence of evil is incompatible with the existence of a Judeo-Christian God. Faith, then, is the basis upon which a belief in God must rest.”
