In modern philosophical discussions, atheists like to assume that theists have no right to assume the existence of “God”.
If a theist assumes the existence of God, he is immediately asked, “How can you prove that God exists?”
Well, the same question may be posed to the atheist, no? “How can you prove that God does not exist?”
Thus, it is as reasonable to assume the existence of God as it is to deny it.
Now, since we have no means of proving the starting assumptions, we are left to assume each as a hypothesis and test it by examining what is knowable.
Does the knowable support theism or atheism?
