In a recent video that’s blowing up the Internet (mainly in Evangelical circles), Joshua Feuerstein challenges atheists to provide “proof or evidence” that God does not exist. If they can, he will give them $100,000.
Peer into the face of madness:
As infantile as his logic is, it’s also insulting (I’m kind of convinced that’s the point though). It’s pretty clear that Feuerstein has no intention of honoring his offer. If you’re still not clear on how this intellectually dishonest doublespeak works, I will give Feuerstein $1,000,000,000,000,000,000 for proof that the Smurfs don’t exist. You could put literally anything into that big circle, which is exactly why you can’t prove a negative and why “You can’t prove it’s not true!” is a terrible standard for believing things.
Can somebody please explain to me how this guy has gotten so popular? As far as I can tell he’s never made anything close to an original argument, let along a good one.
