Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter discusses how antitheistic traditions can fall into a traditional rut of out-of-date, already discredited, or no longer relevant arguments. Antitheistic traditions can become turned in on themselves and self-repetitive, tilting at long dead adversaries if ever existent. The best example of this can be found in one Anglo-American tradition of the antitheistic argument: the argument for the existence of God.

Keywords: antitheistic argument; antitheistic traditions; Anglo-American tradition; God's existence
