For a while now I’ve been exchanging emails with an atheist friend of mind. We’ve talked of many things, but he’s convinced that God just cannot exists, and if He does, then He’s a product of nature, and we should be able to find God in nature, but cannot. And if God is outside of Time and Space then He shouldn’t be able to intervene, and if Christ is God then God is also bound by the laws of physics and the universe, so Christ walking on water would be “impossible.”
He says things like:
"If you cannot expect to find god in nature, and yet we humans are bound under natural law, then we humans can never find god. it is like saying god exists outside of the physical universe, we don’t, thus if god does we can never know god.
we can use logic to determine things which god can or cannot do, simply because some things are clearly contraditory, such as god making a shield which is unbreakable, and a sword which can break anything."
I also told him that God cannot do everything, anotherwords He cannot make a rock too big for Him to lift. He said:
"Ah ha, you are using your own moral human brain to say what god can or cannot do? And that is my point.
Atheists are not belittling Theism, they are pointing out the logical fallacy of saying anything is possible, when in reality only some things are possible, since some things contradict the possibility of other things. Either a box is empty, or it is not empty. Binary states."
How should I respond?
