Circular reasoning is no reason at all

Posted by Brandon | Filed under Philosophy

I was bored today so I decided to come up with some interesting thought experiments that would disprove the existence of a Judeo-Christian-Islamic God (any god that makes scientific claims really). One of these ideas dealt with using the bible’s own circular logic against it. The circular logic I’m referring to is “God wrote the bible; Because the bible claims it; Therefore the bible is infallible.”

If we are going to use this premise then it would be safe to say that if any part of the bible could be proven false beyond question then this fundamentalist reasoning would collapse.

Well, this is quite easy as you will see. There are many topics in the bible that can be disproved. The easiest one is the claim that the earth is 6,000 years old. This statement is absolutely and unequivocally not true. If you think that every scientist from so many different branches of science (astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, paleontology and physics) are wrong then you are plainly deluding yourself and are willfully ignorant to truth. I’m not going to get into the precise details of exactly how we know the age of the earth simply because there are too many to list. Ok, I give in, here’s a few: Radiometric dating, fossils, distant starlight, coral, continental drift, erosion. That’s only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. I will devote an entire article to precisely how scientists (and indeed anyone who has taken a single science course) know this but for now you can look it up on your own as this article is more philosophical in nature.

The age of the earth is not even the only item in the bible that can be disproved; it is simply the most obvious and common sense example. Other examples are as follows: a world wide flood, inbreeding and Adam and Eve (then again for Noah’s family) and Noah’s Ark to just name a few.

Now that we have, without doubt, shown that several statements in the bible are false how will you, as a theist, reconcile the fact that it is purportedly written by God? I’d love to hear your answers.
