Who is the 'I' who have found, etc?
Ah, I saw the link at the bottom of your C&P, David Kowalski.
But the basic argument here is based on the idea that Christianity or theism is based on absolute truth. They are taking the argument based on superiority of merit.
That is only a supposition, there is no proof of any kind of god and more evidence in my mind anyway that there is no Abrahamic god.
As to any kind of god, that is up in the air since there is no communications with any kind of god. I think any 'communication' with the Abrahamic god is all in the eyes of the beholder and not real.
For instance, I point to the tale of the world wide flood, which I would view as an apocalyptic tale with no basis in fact, but a warning to the unbelievers as to what MIGHT happen if their god is ticked off.
I find it totally impossible to believe a god of ANY kind would kill a trillion land animals in an effort to kill a few thousand errant humans.
Since we are talking about a theoretical omniscient creature here, it would know full well it could just off the humans with a thought, so the idea that it would send a world wide message to the remaining humans is abhorrent, this god destroying most of what it built?
It is hard for me to believe people could fall for that as a real tale.
