Seeking a bit of input here. Consider the following scale of possible claims:
- 1. God does not exist.
2. It is irrational to believe that God exists.
3. You are within your rational rights to believe in God.
4. Rationality demands belief in God.
5. God exists.
Which of those claims do you think we can prove? And, my bigger question: is there any gap between claims 4 and 5 (or between 1 and 2, for that matter)? In other words, if you prove 4, have you proved 5? If you haven’t, why not?
