Can God’s Existence be Disproved?

  • Basil Mitchell
Part of the Philosophy of Religion Series book series


In recent years philosophical criticism of theism has tended to take the form of an attempt to show that it is logically inconsistent, or in some other way logically incoherent through failing some legitimate test of significance or intelligibility. If that could be shown there would be no room for an examination of the rational case for theism of the sort I want to undertake. Not only could there be no good reason for belief in God; there would be no possibility of its being even a matter of faith. The subject has accumulated a considerable literature [1], and the present treatment will inevitably be summary and selective. But it would be wrong to evade the challenge altogether and; in meeting it, we are likely to encounter considerations which will be of importance in the later argument.
