To recap this discussion so far.
- The first post was on the evangelistic message of both, which you can read here.
- The second post was about the falsehood of Atheism; because in reality they can only be Agnositic which you can read here.
- The third post looked at the issue of Agnosticism and how many Agnostics actually lean towards a Deistic belief and not that of a Theistic belief – which you can read here.
In my last post I declared that no Agnostic or Deist can in fact claim within a framework of all honesty that Deism is the ultimate truth and therefore they are in fact what I termed an Agnostic Theist.
A deist believes that God may have created the world, but in no ways intervenes or shows himself to exist in any way shape or form within the framework of creation. In a nutshell they are saying that no one can experience God in any tangible way…and in doing so discounts any form of supernatural experience. Where a theist believes that God can and does intervene in the day to day living experience.
In my previous post I made the claim that in the same way an Atheist cannot have the required knowledge to state with all integrity that there is no God; in the same way a deist cannot claim to have all the required knowledge to state with any form of integrity that Theism is a lie and therefore they are in fact an Agnostic Theist.
Because of this position I now intend to look at the subject of Theism to see if there is any knowledge that can be acquired that does indeed point towards Theism as being in fact a very reasonable framework of belief.
