Prove god is real and that you dont believe in fairy tales.
Agnostic here. I don't believe that anybody can prove whether or not
God is real. I doubt that this will change anytime soon. In the meantime,
contemplating this persistent impasse is unhelpful to me in trying to think about the problem of God.
I don't doubt that there are people whose belief in their god-concept might fairly be compared with someone believing fairy tales. On the other hand,
fairy tales are not offered to adults as fact cliams, and so there is an element of rhetorical exaggeration in your framing of the question.
If belief comparable with belief in fairy tales were the only possible kind of adult belief in God's existence, then that would pretty much settle
the question of God. Obviously, then, I believe it is possible for a rational adult to conclude with considerable confidence that God is real.
Although there are many different kinds of beliefs about different gods, one kind is enough to make the point. Take Islam as our example.
Islam has an especially simple evidentiary structure. Either the reader believes that Mohammed had and correctly interpreted the experiences he
recites, or else the reader does not.
What Mohammed recites is not a fairy tale. Regardless of whether his recitations are true or false, they are fact-claims about historical and earlier
actual events, people and places.
Evaluating the credibility of personal testimony is a routine rational way in which someone might reach an opinion about the matter testified to. For
example, I have considered substantial parts of the Koran, evaluated what is written there, and I find Mohammed to be not credible.
However, I am uncertain about that. It is therefore difficult for me to avoid the conclusion that another rational person might evaluate the same body
of testimony that I did, and find Mohammed to be credible.
The issue before us is not who's right, but whether the person who concluded differently from me adopted a belief in fairy tales. The answer is no.
What the person believes are fact claims, not fairy tales, and how the person might have arrived at her beliefs is inapplicable to fairy tales.
