RE: God and Logic
And when do you get around to proving there is no teapot orbiting between Mars and Jupiter?

RE: God and Logic
"We can't apply logic to God"

You also can't apply logic to the Tooth Fairy, The Easter Bunny and Santa Claus.
Because, they are all myths. Human creations of the mind.

I suggest a book: "Being Logical", by DQ McInerny.
He/she? does a good job explaining "First Principles of Logic".

The language of logic is argument. An argument stands or falls based on the strength of reasoning.

The foundation for the Theist argument for the existence of god is the "False Assumption". ALL arguments start with the assumption the god MUST exist because...{fill in anything here}

Other Fallacies:
"Democratic Fallacy"...because so many people believe iin god, god must therefore exist.
The "False Dilemma"...if atheism cannot be proven true, theism must therefore be true. This one is a favorite of DJ Billy Craig (William Lane Craig).
The "Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc Fallacy"...because the universe exists a god must have created it; therefore god must exist.

This following is certainly not a good argument:
"The proof that god exists is that it is illogical (irrational) to believe he does."
This is the ramblings of an idiot.

If we decided that our standard for reasoning is "if something is irrational to believe true then it must be true", we would be in a world of hurt.
No one in their right mind would think this way in everyday life, but somehow theists have embrased it as the cornerstone of their belief.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
