Rex, a philosopher.
Fanatic, a religious fanatic who believes all other religions are false.
Rex: Do you believe in God?
Rex: Do you believe God can do anything?
Rex: Is God above human sciences, logic and reasoning?
Rex: Can God do something that we humans can not understand or that we find impossible or contradictory?
Rex: For example, can God make two plus two equal five?
Rex: How about this: Can God make two plus two equal five and at the same time also have two plus two equal four?
Rex: And, how about this: Can God have multiple religions which all seem contradictory to us by logic and reasoning, but still have them all ultimately true?
Fanatic: Hmm… Yes.
A. Atheist / Agnostic
A: Can you logically prove that god exists?
B: Yes. Proof in any system requires Axioms. For example in Euclidean Geometry 5 axioms are taken to be true by their virtue. Proofs for other theorems are based on these. In a system, god’s existence can be taken as an axiom and used to build an explanation for the universe or can be proved using appropriate axioms.
A: In the same way, I can also prove that there is no god.
B: In the same way, I can prove that you do not exist. In fact, did you know that you are just a dinosaur’s dream? But you say you exist. Why do you say so? How do you know you exist? Codigo ergo sum?
A: Because I know I exist. I feel myself with my senses.
B: But it could be a “maya“, an illusion.
A: It could be. but I believe it is not.
B: Similarly people know, feel and believe god to exist.
A. But you could not prove god’s existence.
B: I just “proved” that a challenge such as prove god exists is illogical.
A: But that leaves us where we were. I am still not convinced god exists.
B: That’s how it is. It is a matter of faith. Not everything can be explained by logic.
