Christian apologists love to talk on and on and on about the rationality of belief in Intelligent Design.
I don’t question the rationality of belief in Intelligent Design (the existence of a Creator). Since cosmologists and other scientific experts have not reached a consensus on this issue, I do not see generic theism (deism) as irrational. But I what I do find irrational is belief that a first century peasant, a human being, is that Creator.
Come on, folks! Use your brains.
Christians will retort: “Millions of highly educated, very intelligent, scientists, lawyers, doctors, and engineers believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Creator of the universe, so how can you say that such belief is irrational?”
That is a logical fallacy, my Christian friends!
Just because a lot of intelligent people believe the supernatural claims of the dominant religion in their culture does not make such belief rational.
I’m sure Christians would agree that just because millions of highly educated, very intelligent Muslim scientists, lawyers, doctors, and engineers believe that the prophet Mohammad flew on a winged horse into heaven (outer space) does not make that claim more believable or rational.
News alert: Human beings are not gods!
Human beings do not have supernatural powers. Stories about human beings performing supernatural acts like flying on winged horses, walking on water, or coming back from the dead are tall tales! They are stories. They are not real.
Think rationally, my Christian friends. Abandon your superstitions.
