If someone believes in Yahweh but not in Vishnu, they need cohesive (and, I would say, evidence-based) reasons for rejecting one and accepting the other, just as someone would need an evidence-based reason to accept some alien stories and reject others. To complete the analogy, though we have differing beliefs about those details, we agree that the Susan we’re talking about is the first wife of Bob (about whom we are in substantial agreement), wears a brace on her left leg because of a collision with an SUV, and owns a pug.The illustration says, “Look: we both reject [god A] because there’s no evidence for his existence, we both reject [god B] because ….”, and it raises the question of why believers in a particular god believe in the absence of evidence. Similarly, though Christians and Muslims believe different things about Allah (which, for those who are unaware, is just Arabic for “the God,” and is used by Arab Christians), they believe he created the universe the universe, formed a first man named Adam out of earth, and was the God of both Abraham and Jesus. For one thing the majority of modern day christians refuse or do not acknowledge any god by the name of YAhweh.there was an article in a recent magazine that pointed this out, that hundreds of gods once had worshippers who made fantastic claims about them, and just because a god no longer has any worshippers doesn’t disprove any of those claims.i find saying “gods” irks believers more than saying “god, she”.
But the exercise is futile unless there are agreed criteria for choosing one religion over another like there are in choosing one scientific theory over another.
Just as the fact that I can’t stand bananas doesn’t count as an argument for starvation.
I’ve always liked John Lennox’s reply to the ‘But you’re an atheist with respect to so and so — I just go one god fewer than you do’ claim: it’s like a celibate person telling a married person, ‘But you’re celibate with respect to every other possible partner — I just go one partner fewer than you do.’ i love this!
A god that is believed to be part of a pantheon–even the head of the pantheon–is not the same sort of God that Christians and Muslims believe in.
For instance, the Christian God is supposed to be omnipotent, but a member of a pantheon is inherently limited, if only by the power of the other gods.
