fails to account for immutable truths, thus atheism undercuts [p] and defeats
Atheism reposes upon a mutable ontology, thus it cannot underwrite immutable
truths—including the alleged immutable truth God doesn’t exist.
How can an atheist know something is immutable (he lacks revelation from an
all-knowing source)? As atheists have finite knowledge and lack knowledge of
the future they cannot, in principle, maintain that it is immutably true that
God does not exist.
Thus, under atheism God can exist in the future; and because God is necessary,
omnipresent, and immutable—successively God exists in the future, God must
is the case modally. God’s ontology necessitates that if [since] He exists
anywhere (the future) He exists everywhere as the omnipresent Lord.
[p] is not immutably true then it is possible that in the future God does exist
[q] is possible in discussing the omnipresent God, God must exist.
can envisage God existing in at least one possible world. The biblical God is
an unchanging being that exists of necessity. Consequently, one can think of a
being that exists of necessity existing in at least one possible world. Since
there is a being who exemplifies the property of existing in all possible
worlds (He’s omnipresent), it follows that He exists in all possible worlds. As
one can think God could possibly exist then God necessarily exists; which means
He exists in all possible worlds including our actual world. God is
possible world is a complete account of a maximal state of affairs. The notion
of possible worlds also exhibits a distinction between material necessity and
logical necessity. It may be a material necessity that light has specific
properties of wave and particle. But that does not mean light must have those
exact properties transversely in all possible worlds. The properties of light
in our universe are of material necessity, but not logical necessity.
light to have the same properties in all possible worlds would mean it is
necessary, hence light would require no explanation outside itself. For light
to require no explanation outside itself, it would have to exist across all
possible worlds as it is in our actual world. In other words, there is no
possible way things could have been that doesn't include the present properties
of light in the actual world. It’s worth noting that the laws of nature,
including the properties of light, are not the determinants of necessity as are
the laws of logic. This truth of logical necessity is entrenched in the
universality of the laws of logic which the laws of nature are devoid.
is impossible. When anyone attempts to escape the truth that God exists, he
falls in a trap he cannot escape. This point is well made in the illustration
of a man made of smoke, who is trying to ascend out of the gaseous void by
means of stairs made of steam. He cannot get out of the void, for he has
nothing to stand on. Likewise, without God, one cannot make sense of anything.
The atheist has nothing to stand on (an ontological Archimedean locus of
reference) and he lacks a rational apparatus to scale; an epistemic ladder that
would allow him to view reality with clarity.
