Salita ng Diyos

Kasulatan ay isinasaalang-alang ang mga salita ng Diyos. Kung ikaw ay atheist tulad ng sa akin, alam mo na ang lahat ng mga salita na dumating mula sa mga tao. Diyos ay walang salita. Ito iaangat ng isang nakawiwiling tanong tungkol sa mga taong sumulat down na ang mga salitang ito. Bakit ipinapahiwatig ng mga ito (o flat-out sabihin) na sila ay binibigkas mga salita ng Diyos?

Diyos — A Personal Story

I want to wrap up this series on atheism with a personal story about the point in time where I started diverging from the concept of God. I was very young then, about five years old. I had lost a pencil. It had just slipped out of my schoolbag, which was nothing more than a plastic basket with open weaves and a handle. When I realized that I had lost the pencil, I was quite upset. I think I was worried that I would get a scolding for my carelessness. Ang makikita mo, my family wasn’t rich. We were slightly better off than the households in our neighborhood, but quite poor by any global standards. The new pencil was, sa akin, a prized possession.

The Origins of Gods

The atheist-theist debate boils down to a simple question — Did humans discover God? O, did we invent Him? The difference between discovering and inventing is the similar to the one between believing and knowing. Theist believe that there was a God to be discovered. Atheists “alam” that we humans invented the concept of God. Belief and knowledge differ only slightly — knowledge is merely a very very strong belief. A belief is considered knowledge when it fits in nicely with a larger worldview, which is very much like how a hypothesis in physics becomes a theory. While a theory (such as Quantum Mechanics, halimbawa) is considered to be knowledge (or the way the physical world really is), it is best not to forget the its lowly origin as a mere hypothesis. My focus in this post is the possible origin of the God hypothesis.

Atheism and Unreal God

The only recourse an atheist can have against this argument based on personal experience is that the believer is either is misrepresenting his experience or is mistaken about it. I am not willing to pursue that line of argument. I know that I am undermining my own stance here, but I would like to give the theist camp some more ammunition for this particular argument, and make it more formal.

Atheism vs. God Experience

I have a reason for delaying this post on the fifth and last argument for God by Dr. William Lane Craig. It holds more potency than immediately obvious. While it is easy to write it off because it is a subjective, experiential argument, the lack of credence we attribute to subjectivity is in itself a result of our similarly subjective acceptance of what we consider objective reason and rationality. I hope that this point will become clearer as you read this post and the next one.

Atheism and the Morality of the Godless

In the previous post, we considered the cosmological argument (that the Big Bang theory is an affirmation of a God) and a teleological argument (that the highly improbable fine-tuning of the universe proves the existence of intelligent creation). We saw that the cosmological argument is nothing more than an admission of our ignorance, although it may be presented in any number of fancy forms (such as the cause of the universe is an uncaused cause, which is God, halimbawa). The teleological argument comes from a potentially wilful distortion of the anthropic principle. The next one that Dr. Craig puts forward is the origin of morality, which has no grounding if you assume that atheism is true.

Atheism – Christian God, or Lack Thereof

Prof. William Lane Craig is way more than a deist; he is certainly a theist. Sa katunayan, he is more than that; he believes that God is as described in the scriptures of his flavor of Christianity. I am not an expert in that field, so I don’t know exactly what that flavor is. But the arguments he gave do not go much farther than the deism. He gave five arguments to prove that God exists, and he invited Hitchens to refute them. Hitchens did not; kahit, not in an enumerated and sequential fashion I plan to do here.

Atheism – Is There a God?

Kamakailan lamang, I have been listening to some debates on atheism by Christopher Hitchens, as recommended by a friend. Although I agree with almost everything Hitchens says (said rather, because he is no longer with us), I find his tone bit too flippant and derisive for my taste, much like The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. I am an atheist, as those who have been following my writings may know. Given that an overwhelming majority of people do believe in some sort of a supreme being, at times I feel kind of compelled to answer the question why I don’t believe in one.

Huwag Maniwala ka sa Diyos?

Nakakuha ako sa pag-para sa pagtatanong ang tanong na ito nang isang beses. Ang taong tinanong ko ang tanong Nakakuha galit dahil naramdaman niya na ito ay masyadong personal. Kaya ako ay hindi pagpunta sa hilingin sa iyo kung naniniwala ka sa Diyos. Huwag sabihin sa akin — Ako ay magsasabi sa iyo! Ako din sabihin sa iyo ng kaunti pa tungkol sa iyong personalidad sa ibang pagkakataon sa post na ito.

Ok, dito ay ang deal. Kunin mo ang pagsusulit sa ibaba. Ito ay may higit sa 40 totoo-o-maling mga tanong tungkol sa iyong mga gawi at mannerisms. Sa sandaling sagutin mo ang mga ito, Ako ay magsasabi sa iyo kung naniniwala ka sa Diyos, at kung gayon, kung magkano. Kung ikaw ay makakuha nababato pagkatapos sabihin nating 20 tanong o kaya, ito ay okay, you can quit the quiz and get the Rate. Subalit ang higit pang mga tanong mo sagutin, ang mas tumpak ang aking hula tungkol sa iyong pananampalataya ay magiging.

Once you have your Score (o Rate, kung hindi mo ito tapusin ang pagsusulit), mag-click sa pindutan na naaayon sa ito.

Narito kung paano ito gumagana. May isang sangay ng paggawa ng mga nagaganap sa aming utak, ayon sa mga teorya ng hemispheric Espesyalisasyon ng utak function. Sa ganitong teorya, kaliwang hemisphere ng utak ay isinasaalang-alang ang pinagmulan ng mga lohikal at Analytical pag-iisip, at ang right hemisphere ay ang pinagmulan ng mga creative at madaling gamitin na pag-iisip. Ang tinatawag na kaliwang utak tao ay naisip na linear, lohikal, Analytical, at unemotional; at ang right-brained tao ay naisip na spatial, creative, mystical, madaling maunawaan, at emosyonal.

Ang paniwala ng hemispheric Espesyalisasyon itataas ang isang kawili-wiling tanong: ay ateismo may kaugnayan sa mga lohikal na hemisphere? Sigurado atheists mas mababa ng damdamin? Sa tingin ko kaya, at ang pagsubok na ito ay batay sa paniniwalang. Ang mga pagsubok pagsusulit kung ikaw ay “kaliwang utak” tao. Kung puntos mo mataas, iyong kaliwa-utak ay nangingibabaw, at ikaw ay malamang na maging mas Analytical at lohikal na madaling maunawaan kaysa sa o creative. At, ayon sa aking haka-haka, ikaw ay malamang na maging isang Atheist. Ito ay gagana ba para sa iyo?

Mahusay, kahit na ito ginawa hindi, ngayon alam mo na kung ikaw ay Analytical o madaling maunawaan. Mangyaring mag-iwan ng komento upang ipaalam sa akin kung paano ito nagtrabaho.
