[blue]Existance does not necessarily have to be physical.[/blue]
I think you want to say that existence does not have to be 'actual'. Because we know that mermaids do not actually exist; they are fictitious in contrast to reality. We are not taking about the nature of God's existence - spirirtual or physical; we are talking about whether it is actual or not. Hence when we talk about mermaids, we know that their existence is not actual or real. Is this the case with God?
[blue]Secondly, deinal does not mean that that particular thing does not exist. One shall have to provide the prove for the denial. Physical existance is an attribute. So far it seems Mermaids do not have that attribute. Their existance is fictional. Can you deny the fictional existance of Mermaids?[/blue]
In the second response, you are again confusing 'actual or real' with 'physical'. I am not talking about the nature of existence. I am talking about whether something really exists? Hence the stress is on real. I had written
About second argument, If someone denies the existence of mermaids, they are right in doing so. This does not prove the existence of mermaids - which no one has ever been foolish enough to profess. Does it?
I meant to say that their existence is not actual. So if someone denies that mermaid in reality does not exist, they would be right in doing so.
[blue]Thirdly, Allah is The Creator of Universe and Claims to be so. I have not heard of anyone claiming to be the creator of The Creator. Answer shall be provided when the question arises.[/blue]
About the third argument, the atheist would simply say that I do not see him make such a claim. Because, if he were to see God as making a claim, he would question his existence since it would have been empirical for him.[/quote]
