But if that is what you believe, then what evidence do you have for your belief that god doesn't exist? And if that evidence is weak or refuted, then we must believe that god does in fact exist, right? That doesn't seem to make any sense either. Better to admit there are beliefs we hold not on the basis of any other beliefs.
no a requirement for a basic belife if they exist...(i do not like the concept) is not evidence but instead a hard qualifier, what makes belief x rational and warranted. i am not saying you need evidnce but you need to qulaify why belife in gods is rational and warranted. something form the limited reading of palntinga i have seen is not properly investigated much liek the concept of natural evil.
again i repeating myself, my englsih is bad but nto that bad, i nevr said gods do nto exist i am simply doubting that a propasition of this sort is clearly evident, rational nor warranted.
