Default Using simple logic to prove the presence of God

a - When we discover something true, we have discovered truth
b - For truth to be discovered, it must exist.
c - Truth therefore exists before it is discovered
d - Truth that exists before it is discovered is truth that has been applied
e - Truth that is applied is known

Argument 1: "I don't agree that for truth to be discovered it must exist".

Answer: How can you deny such simple logic? If there is an Island and I discover it, the Island had to be there before I discover it

Argument 2: "Can you please elaborate on what you mean by Truth that exists before it is discovered has been applied. I don't agree with that and it doesn't make sense to me for me to agree with it"

Answer: Let us refer to the simple truth, "Fire burns". If that simple truth has not been applied then why does fire burn? Why does that truth apply?

So what was your evidence that god exists?

Convoluted semantics and pure nonsence isn't generally regarded as evidence.

And exactly which god do think you have evidence for? I am guessing Thor but need you to clarify.

Lets stay on topic, is there any Atheist who can refute my above statements?

Regarding which God I believe in, my answer is this, I believe in One God, to whom the most beautiful names belong. It not being bound by space-time

Why only one god? Even if there was a god, or gods, why only one?

Can you explain it in a much simpler way, I really am having a hard time understanding your OP.

On a lighter note, he must be a lovely god since he gets a capitalised One.

Allow me to make it a bit more simple by stating a conclusion based on the above statements:

(f) conclusion: If truth exists before it is discovered, if it is discovered that is, then who is that truth known by? especially if that truth has been applied, applies and is therefore known?

Ah, of course. Pikkiwoki.
This is the kind of response I expected. Instead of attempting to refute me (which I challenge you all to), you resort to a poor sense of humour. But thanks for your response anyway, it's reassuring to know you had nothing better to say in response to what I posted.

Wow. That is an incredibly convincing proof of the existence of god. I will instantly throw away my 40 years of atheism and bow down before the almighty. In fact when this hits the media the whole world will be instantly convinced.



Yeah...right!
