The Free Thinking Argument

In this short video, Tim Stratton of Free Thinking Ministries unpacks why he believes it is implausible to believe that an atheistic naturalist can actually be a free thinker.

His argument is as follows:

1. If naturalism is true, the immaterial human soul does not exist.

2. If the soul does not exist, libertarian free will does not exist.

3. If libertarian free will does not exist, rationality and knowledge do not exist.

4. Rationality and knowledge exist.

5. Therefore, libertarian free will exists.

6. Therefore, the soul exists.

7. Therefore, naturalism is false.

8. The best explanation of the existence of the soul is God.

For those who want to learn more about the argument, checkout this summary by Tim.

Very good argument against atheists and those who think that they have freewill. Been arguing against atheists at the Christian-atheist debate on Topix.com.
