Re: The logic of atheism



Paul Holbach wrote:

I think Ben is right insofar as the basic atheological argument is
quite simple:

Nobody, including God, is omniscient, i.e. all-knowing, if it is
impossible to know all (i.e. all that is true or the case). It is in
fact impossible to know all, and therefore nobody, including God, is
actually omniscient, i.e. all-knowing.
So God might be called "superknowledgeable" but not "all-knowing",
because for any body of actual knowledge there are further truths not actually known.
