Ah, Pascal’s Wager. It attempts not to provide a proof of God’s existence, but rather it tries to show that no matter if he does or does not exist, it is stupid not to believe that he does. An interesting approach, but I think it completely fails. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone actually use this argument, but I’m sure it is done. I know I’ve heard of atheists making fun of it, so I thought I may as well talk about it. Continue reading “Pascal’s Wager”
This argument is not very convincing in my opinion because you could just accept the consequences, but I think most people don’t realize the results of naturalism. And in this post I am going to lay out just one of those results. Wait a second. That was too short an intro. I must write more without actually saying more because the actual content is pretty straight forward and won’t take much explaining at all. So I guess I’ll just ramble for a bit longer.

Sometimes I say things like, “This is good.” or “This song rends my heart.” But I have never taken a serious look at songs, albums, or artists and expressed that. And I don’t think I will. But if I don’t, I could easily post stuff every day, and that would completely overshadow my other posts. Gah! See my predicament? I guess you will just have to bear with me. Anyway, on to the tunes.

So, relativism. By this I mean truth relativism, the belief that truth is dependent on individuals and that objective truth does not exist. If a person believes that people have souls, then that person would be making a true statement if he says, “People have souls.” But if the guy sitting next to him does not believe it, then he also would be making a true statement if he says, “People have no souls.” It sounds a bit crazy that you could believe that they are both right, but a lot of postmodernism is based on this idea.
