Not proving God’s non-existence

Interesting Q&A on ABC last night. I only heard a snippet of it on NewsRadio, but was rather bemused by how eager Eva Cox was to blame all the ills of the world on a God she doesn’t believe in.

When distilled down, her ‘proof’ against the existence of God goes like this.

  1. If there was a God …
  2. … all the ills and woes of the world are his fault.
  3. I don’t like the sound of that …
  4. … therefore God doesn’t exist.

After a sound start at step 1, the remaining steps of the argument are laughably foolish.
