Come on. No serious theologian would say that. they know you need grace, luck, or a bit of salvia divinorum, which seems to cure atheism according to some reports.

So are these people not serious theologians: William Lane Craig, Alister McGrath, Alvin Plantinga, Rowan Williams.

Who counts as a "serious theologian"? Is it only those that agree with you?


No, they are those who are able to put an interrogation mark behind their public assertions, and are open to revise their statement in a debate.

PS I have to go and will comment later other posts (busy day). Thanks for the patience. I like very much that thread, which is in between purely vocabulary discussion and perhaps an important idea on "reality" ....

We can't believe in God rationally, nor can we believe in the moon rationally, but we can study the consequences of our theories. And when we become rational, as you know, we are lead from questions to questions.
