CA84 Why I Am An Atheist

There are five reasons, broadly, why I’m an atheist: 

I. We don’t need God to explain anything.

II. There are few phenomena that are better explained by theistic models than by atheistic models.

III. There are many phenomena that are better explained by atheistic models than by theistic models.

IV. Theism is more metaphysically profligate than naturalism as an explanation.

V. Theism suffers from various internal problems.

We discuss each of these reasons, abductive atheology, and several issues related to atheism.
