When it comes to Sye claiming everyone knows god exists, I say the emperor has no clothes.

What I find hilarious is that diddo97 attempts to back up this absurd claim with the contradictory claim that we can't know anything. If we can't know anything, doesn't it follow that we also can't know God exists?

I actually have some sympathy with the idea that we can't know anything, if you assume a very rigorous definition of the word "know". But that would include the existence of God. We can't possibly know that God exists, or that he doesn't. We can only believe one way or the other, based on the evidence that we have. I strongly believe that God does not exist, but I don't claim to know it. The claim that we "know" that he does exist just makes me laugh.

Here, I'll argue Diddo97's side for him.

"God alone can reveal things to us in a way that we know them with certainty".

How did I do?

No. He doesn't.

His best tactic is his shifting of burden of proof. That is embarrassing.
So why is he their best guy? Why is he considered the best apologist? Is there really nobody better?

Because to Christians he SOUNDS smart, and that's all that really matters for them to believe his garbage. Anybody with a very basic understanding of science can tell that William Lane Craig, Ken Ham, and their cohorts are batshit crazy with the ridiculous arguments they make. Christians don't care though. If it sounds good, that's all that matters. William Lane Craig is a bullshit artist whose goal is to make his bullshit sound good so that people will believe it.

These ridiculous "scientific" arguments made by Christians are just an act of sugarcoating a turd.

I don't want to believe it, but I have no choice. I cannot refute Sye Ten's arguments.

That title is self-appointed.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

RE: Why the hell is William Lane Craig considered the best Christian Apologist?
There is no "best apologist", there are merely people using circular reasoning. Like arguing for the existence for Harry Potter. Now if you want to argue some are more slick than others, you could argue that. But none of them are selling anything real, just trying to convince themselves and others they have something.
