100% Certainty God Does Not Exist

Posted 11-24-2015 at 10:43 PM by Continuum


[B]The Overriding Principle of Rationality[/B]
"Not to be absolutely certain is, I think, one of the essential things in rationality."
[I]Bertrand Russell[/I]

I had the original article to the above but cannot find it at present. Here is a nearer reference re Russell's Ten Commandments.
[URL="http://query.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=9A06E7DA1431EF3BBC4E52DFB467838A649EDE"]The Best Answer to Fanaticism--Liberalism - Its calm search for truth, viewed as dangerous in many places, remains the hope of humanity. - Article - NYTimes.com[/URL]
[URL="http://www.personal.kent.edu/~rmuhamma/Philosophy/RBwritings/iRationalist.htm"]Why I Am A Rationalist* by Bertrand Russell[/URL]

There are many other Philosophical theories and principles on why there is no Absolute Certainty in the real world, .e.g. Hume's Problem of Induction, Wittgenstein 'On Certainty' Kant's Copernican Revolution, etc.



Why[B] '100% Certainty God Does Not Exist'[/B]
If one is a fisherman in the open ocean, optimally one should not fish with a net that is full of [or even with some] holes where the targeted fishes can escape.

[B]Scenario 1[/B]
Thus in the preparation stages the fisherman should ensure the net is of the right quality for the right conditions and check to ensure there are no holes in the net for any fish to escape.
In this case, the fisherman can be 100% certain no fish will escape with such conditions.

[B]Scenario 2[/B]
In contrast, another fisherman may compromise the quality of the net due to price. When he checked the nets and found some holes he may justify the fishes are not that smart enough to see them within such a large net to get through to escape. He many accept some fishes may escape but at least he will still catch 90% of what is encircled by the net and make a profit.


The above can be applied to atheistic [I prefer not-a-theist] discussions where atheists should adopt Scenario 1, i.e. [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist' [/B]within a Critical Philosophy Framework and System to support such a 100% certainty. This Framework and System is then conditioned to the overriding Principle of Rationality as mentioned above.

Atheists should avoid presenting merely unorganized and unsystematic haphazard propositions to argue 'God do not exists' militantly or with some degree of agnosticism [like Dawkins grading scale].
This leave room for theists to eel their way through the slightest cracks to cling to the hope that since you [atheists] are not sure, then God exists from my [theistic] perspective based arguments from Design and other proofs.
[COLOR=blue][B]SOME Theists[/B]: Since God really exists and God's Law sanction I can kill you for not believing in my Supreme God ... Beware! This unfortunately is a reality![/COLOR]


What atheist need is a Critical Philosophy Framework and System to '[B]checkmate[/B]' the theists position that leave no room [100% impossible] at all to argue or hope there is a possibility of God exists in the real world and therefrom for SOME [not all] theists to kill non-believers in the real world which is actually happening.

I am not insisting theists should not believe in a God. Theism is a critical necessity for the majority of humans for this present phase of evolution [not the future] and without it at present there could be anarchy internally [self] and externally. Theists should continue to believe in a God via faith ..

However the only room for theist to discuss is merely based on psychological reasons and without any rational basis nor grounds. This will make room for theists to proceed with self-improvements toward the well being of humanity.



My approach to [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist' [/B]is as follows;

[B]1.[/B] The Overriding Principle of Rationality - the main set
[B]2.[/B] The Principles of [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist'[/B]
[B]3.[/B] The Critical Philosophical Framework and System to support 2.
[B]4.[/B] The threat of extremist theists and the possible extinction of the human species given the current trend.

I have already posted the various points in the following threads;
[URL="http://www.city-data.com/forum/philosophy/2432485-100-certainty-god-does-not-exist-26.html"][COLOR=#0066cc]http://www.city-data.com/forum/philosophy/2432485-100-certainty-god-does-not-exist-26.html[/COLOR][/URL]
[URL]http://www.city-data.com/forum/41098391-post251.html[/URL]

The main gist of the proposition [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist' [/B]is analogically to demonstrate that it is almost the same of trying to prove 'A Squared Circle Exist' which is an impossibility.

I have the substance to justify my Critical Philosophical Framework and System to support the proposition [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist'.[/B]
However one constraint is the difficulty to explain it in a forum and besides I intend to write a book on it so I am not revealing too much to avoid plagiarism.


The purpose of this thread is to demonstrate and discuss [as far as we can go] there is a possibility to sustain and maintain a Critical Philosophical Framework and System to support the proposition [B]'100% Certainty God Does Not Exist'. [/B]Personally I believe this is achievable.

I believe atheists should strive to achieve such a system to support their atheistic views instead of being like fishermen in Scenario 2 above.
