“Slick” Logic - My Refutation of Theoretical BS (TBS)



I’ve summarised TBS’s argument and made it bold inside // marks and responded below. My responses are below each of TBS's argument.

//Logic – descriptive and prescriptive.//

But why does the universe act in a logical way?

//Things just behave the way they do.//

But why? This is begging the question.

//Logic is man-made.//


I think this is what he is saying. If that is what he believes then the question is - could the universe have existed and not existed at the same time and in the same way BEFORE people existed?

// Christians can’t prove that the law of non-contradiction is absolute.//

But we can! God cannot lie (Hebrews 6:18), and is logical by His very nature. God cannot deny himself (2 Tim 2:13). God cannot contradict himself because contradictions amount to lying.

//Christians can’t account for why God exists//

God is eternal and has always existed. His existence is the necessary presupposition to make sense of anything.

//God is not accounted for.//

Not true. See my website www.godorabsurdity.com for proof God exists, and proof that you can't know anything unless you start with God.

//I (TBS) can’t account for logical absolutes.//


That’s right! You can’t because you’re denying God.

//God’s existence, qualities and nature are assumed by the Christian//

They are not assumed – they are known by the Christian with certainty by revelation from God.
TBS either does not understand or does not want to understand that absolute Laws of logic make sense in the Christian worldview – Logic is immaterial, universal, and does not change. Likewise God is immaterial, universal, and does not change – so laws of logic make sense in the Christian worldview but not without God. TBS is also assuming the reliability of his senses and the uniformity of nature – both of which he has absolutely no basis for without God.

    So how do you know God can not lie, because God told you? But that assumes that God isn't lying.

    1. Yes, I know that God cannot lie by revelation from God. If God could lie you couldn't even make sense of your question. The proof that the Bible is true is that if it weren't nothing could be true. How do you get truth without God?
