For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified Him as God nor gave thanks to Him, but they became futile in their thinking and darkened in their foolish hearts.…"

And Paul has metaphysical street cred why?

The belief that Good and all powerful being can create a world in which evil exists, is not a contradictory belief.

A point that should be apparent particularly if you subscribe to subjective morality, where the concept of morally Good has no objective meaning, just a variety of subjective ones.

You're once again missing the point -- that if you subscribe to moral objectivity, such a being must either behave morally, or be judged immoral. If you choose neither option, you are thereby undermining your belief in moral objectivity.

How about a scenario where you actually appreciate the value of critical thinking? Literally the only way you can think of to change your mind is by brain-washing? This doesn't like, raise a red flag for you?

If you allow them to do that they will continue to control the conversation. Call "bullshit" when they play games or you might as well give up.

For the child everything is evidence, and the rules are, there are no rules.

You accept your intuitive assumptions, and go from there. If you already believe God exists, whatever inquiries you engage in, whatever reasonable assumption you make, serve to rationalize after the fact, more for the sake of resolving any nagging doubts, then to guide you to believing

Like I said, your god is an imaginary friend and you never grew up beyond the thinking capacity of a child. The fact that you can't or won't see that, is a result of your indoctrination.

Or is this response indoctrination tactic #5 or 6 or whatever you're at? Consider

Kids are pretty sharp. Tommy you never played that game with your old man? "Where did the world come from Daddy?" "God made it, son". "Who made God, Daddy". "No one did, son, he always existed" "That makes no sense Daddy" "If you don't shut up you'll get a hiding, son".

Self-awareness Tommy? Didn't know you had it in you.

You realise that we can *check* our intuitive assumptions? Identify, then check. Identifying assumptions is something that every conscientious scientist strives for. It's another benefit of peer-review. Someone else might spot something you don't.

Why would you think that God would be exempt? Once you realise that you've always just assumed the existence of God, it becomes reasonable to think of checking that assumption.
