Only One Less God?

One frequently hears atheists make the claim that everyone is an atheist when it comes to deities like Thor or Zeus. The modern atheist, the claim is made, only believes in one less deity than the theist. But is that really the case?

James White makes a case for how this assertion trivializes the fundamental difference in the worldviews of the theist and the atheist.

  1. James White: It’s easy to understand why he uses this argument, but these were pagan deities that came forth from the Creation. To even put these gods in the same category as the true God of the Bible…

    /facepalm

  2. The Medium Lebowsky

    Funny how the believer’s god is always the one true god and all the others are fakes.

  3. James White is still on the old “my god is better than your god” theme. I was raised in a Baptist family, and was ‘bible bashed’ daily, until I left home at 16. I have read the bible, cover to cover, three times, in the last 50 years, and it still makes no sense to me. I would like to ask, what has your god done, in the last hundred years, that would make me believe in him/her/it.
