What are your facts then?
@TwoToTooTutu2 My facts?
@TwoToTooTutu2 I do not feel like arguing against religion as a whole, be more specific on which religion so I can present facts against their specific claims instead.
Judaism since he is a Jew.
@TwoToTooTutu2 Well first of all its not internally consistent in the first place. What one Jew believes in rarely translates directly into what another one does and you end up with thousands upon thousands of different sects but strictly speaking only one of them even has the chance to be correct since by definition everyone else must be wrong.Similarly these beliefs change over time and the beliefs today is vastly different from the beliefs Jews had 500 years ago. I can keep going cutting the group into smaller and smaller parts just to use their own beliefs and proofs against every other Jew but lets stop there.A good place to start with presenting evidence against any religion is usually their creation myth. The idea is pretty simple, the people back then had virtually no idea about the physical world or its history so them trying to speculate on how it was formed means they have to try guess or be poetic.Judaism has the same 7 day creation myth as all other Abrahamic religions which does not in any way shape or form correlate with what we know of our worlds history starting from Big Bang.Beyond that Judaism also did not start from nothing. We have a pretty good understanding of what lead up to the creation of Judaism and all other Abrahamic religions that explains not only most of their beliefs but also shows just how much they have simply taken from other religions. Judaism is not inspired from the word of God but from the world and religions around them.While this series is specifically about the deconversion story of a Christian the first part of the history of Christianity is the same.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlnnWbkMlbghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPfFx9JTQl8So to summarize. Judaism is not internally consistent, it can be used as evidence against itself. Judaism has blatantly false accounts such as the creation myth and lastly we have a pretty good understanding of where Judaism came from and its not from God as they claim.
While you're not wrong, you can't truly know his true beliefs. You can't put the words of Jews from the past in his mouth because Religions are less of a belief and more of a lifestyle.
@TwoToTooTutu2 Unless you are telling me he is not a Jew I have to go under the assumptions that he believes in, for lack of better words, "Judaism".
Well he practices it that's for sure, but therecis no way to know what he believes. He may have done a video or something on it, but I don't know for sure.
@TwoToTooTutu2 Well all those things I mentioned are inherent flaws to Judaism as a religion and not really up for debate.
Yeah no spesific religion is right, but the existence of God can't be proven, not denied, so it is neither wrong or right what you believe. Each religion is just a system of practicing your faith in God Whoever it may be.
@TwoToTooTutu2 The only reason a God can't be denied is because there is always a way to circumvent and contrive their existence. You can excuse anything with magic saying that "Even though there is literally no evidence for their existence they simply choose not to reveal themselves and any time they act on us they use their powers to make it seam like it was a natural phenomena all along".Anytime you claim there is a good, when you actually put down something concrete its easy to debunk. Does not matter what belief it is, they are all equally flawed which includes Ben Shapiro's.
Well there is no proper evidence to suggest otherwise
@TwoToTooTutu2 That is wrong actually. The more you have to contrive your beliefs the more unlikely they become and probability does carry evidential weight. Every time you have to explain away something it becomes more and more unlikely to be true and eventually you fall victim to Occam's razor.
Most evidence is just a bunch of theories. There are many Theories that support the Existence of God such as the Theory that the Universe is a living cell in some other larger plane making God the organism we are part of.
@TwoToTooTutu2 There is no theory that I am aware of that supports a god. Allows for one? Maybe but none outright supports it. Also pretty much all theories of what the universe is or what was before it is just thought experiments.The most concrete evidence for anything like that which I know of is how a previous universe might explain some anomalies inside the universal background radiation. Basically they would be the remnants of black holes in very close proximity during a universe crunch event which somehow resulted in our universe.This is the flimsiest of theories though and it does not really hit at a god.
Well, in a Universe with infinite possibilities a God is not a strech of the imagination. That is how most of us think. God is also a subjective term. The Sun could be God because it gives us life every day.
@TwoToTooTutu2 I would think our imagination has stretched pretty far and yet no one I am aware of has presented a credible god. If there is a god they seam to be very obscure to say the least and quite frankly it seams unlikely at this point.
