So often one seems to come across debates between a non believer on one side, and a believer in the dominant God of that particular culture, on the other side. The alternatives frequently appear to be 'No God' or 'This God'.
But isn't that missing out a vital step? If I'm to believe that the the natural Universe was indeed created by a deity, how can I be sure that it was, for example, the Christian deity rather than the God of a number of other competing religions?
To be honest, the fact that there are many so many people who equally fervently believe that 'their' God is the true God, leaves me wondering how many people of the hghest integrity must, by definition, be utterly deluded. Pity those poor wretches who may devote their whole life to their chosen religion, and maybe even die for it, when their belief is nothing but a delusion.
How can one tell who is deluded? There are no proofs or logical explanations for any of these competing deities, and much of the 'evidence' would not last 5 minutes if subjected to impartial scientific scrutiny...
I remain perplexed by people's wholly illogical behaviour.
