107. Why people easily Reject the Existence of God with Little Evidence.

Why do people reject with 100% certainty the existence of God when a follower of Jesus mentions only 10 % uncertainty? Yet through life we accept many things with far less certainty or evidence? William Lane Craig has some very interesting thoughts on this problem.

Here is William Lane Craig’s response to a relevant issue.

I also have noted that there are 6 things that impact discussions on the existence of God.

1. Proofs and evidence are person-relative. While one proof or a line of evidence  may be a home run for one person, it may result in little more than contempt  for someone else. How may times have both sides looked at the other and said “Don’t you think that is a convincing argument?” ” How can you reject such a sound argument?”

2. An individual’s presuppositions play a large role in how they evaluate the evidence for God. A presupposition is something assumed or supposed in advance. If someone presupposes that God must not exist or that miracles are not possible, in many cases they will seek out evidence that confirms their hypothesis, and dismiss evidence that might challenge or overturn their position.  Likewise, if someone presupposes that God…

About Herman of bibledifferences.net

The reasons for the differences between older Bibles like the King James Version and newer Bibles like the New International Version have fascinated me ever since my studies in Theology at the University of Pretoria in the seventies. I have great respect for scribes through the ages as well as Bible translators, so there must be good reasons for the differences. With more than 5600 Greek manuscripts and more than 19000 manuscripts of ancient translations to our disposal, the original autographs of the New Testament can be established without doubt. I investigate the reasons behind the differences and publish the facts in a post on my blogs www.bibledifferences.net (Afrikaans: www.bybelverskille.wordpress.com) to enable my readers to judge for themselves. Personally I love to make an informed decision based of facts. That is why I endeavor to provide that same privilege to the readers of my blogs. Since 1973 I am married to my dear wife and greatest friend, Leah Page, founder director of Act-Up Support (www.actup.co.za) a prayer ministry for families struggling with drug-, occult- and other dependencies. We are blessed with two daughters and two sons, four grand sons and two grand daughters. God is alive and omnipotent! Glory to His Name! Herman Grobler.
