When raising a point, it's essential for it to not have alternatives. Otherwise it doesn't serve the argument.
This is a pretty straightforward way to dismiss essential point in many arguments for the existence of deities.
These are some pretty rough ideas that I wanted to at least get written down. I think they could easily be improved upon.
I have a book which proves my particular god exists.
- Ink on paper can prove something exists? Can it manifest something into reality?
Lots of people believe god exists, therefore god exists.
- Lots of people believing something manifests it into reality?
- Lots of people believed the world was flat, and it actually was? Then there was a lie spread about it being round, and only when many people believed it was round did it actually become round?
I know that god exists.
I have personal conviction that god exists.
- You can personally manifest things through the magic power of your conviction? Could you manifest a briefcase of money for me?
I have an argument for the existence of god, but no evidence.
- A particular assemblage of sounds, made into words, made into phrases, can validate the reality of something? The best you can do is some wacky detached version of deism.
