Full Refutation

“We have refuted every atheist argument and speculation.  If, incredibly, you come across a new argument or speculation, let us know.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

The Rationality of Human Suffering

“Is it necessarily rational to be angry with someone who causes human suffering?  No.  Why not?  Would you be angry with a being that sent paralyzing pain to someone who was about to kill a loved one?  No.  This reveals the real cause of our anger – a belief relating to human suffering, not human suffering itself.  The belief is that the human suffering is irrational and/or indicative of some other causal shortcoming.  Now, such beliefs are ultimately matters of judgment, not science.  Thus, the validity of such beliefs depends on whether the ‘judge,’ the one making the judgment, has a sound faculty to make judgments.  That, in turn, is established by a long track record of sound judgments.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Pain Per Se (In Itself) Is Irrelevant

“People do not get angry over (or experience other emotion because of) pain, though they may believe that is the case.  People only get angry over idea related to pain.  For example, people may get angry over the idea that pain is unjust or they may get angry over the idea that pain is cruel or they may get angry over the idea that pain is too severe.  So, there is not, was not, and cannot be anger over human suffering per se (in itself).  However, the mind may, in effect (not actually), merge idea and perception so that it seems that the pain itself is the cause of the anger.  Proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences, utterances, and writings of masochists, who enjoy their suffering.  Additional proof of the independence of anger (and other emotion) from pain is found in the experiences of military personnel, who endure hardships in preparation for military service.  Also, there are the hardships of athletic training endured by athletes.  These facts destroy the sometimes seemingly irrefutable ‘arguments of suffering’ proffered by atheists.  Finally, if a person is suffering severely, they are not seeking to express some motivation (emotion) to prove God is a monster; rather, they are seeking relief from their pain.”

Emotion, Illusion, Cause, Pain, Perception, and Virtual Thought

“Emotion can seem to be due to pain since every perception, including pain, is a virtual thought.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

God and Pain

“Technically, if God sent pain for no reason, that would not disprove his existence.  It would simply prove that God was a cruel God and/or, in one or more other ways, deficient.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Violation of Occam’s Razor

“Atheists violate Occam’s razor.  Occam’s razor states that ‘entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity.’  In colloquial English, ‘among competing hypotheses, the hypothesis with the fewest assumptions should be selected.’”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Postulation (Assuming To Be Existent), New Types of Reality and Atheists

“Atheists are so determined to avoid belief in God that they would rather postulate (assume as existent) new categories of reality than admit the truth.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Evasion, Illusion, Misdirection, Deceit, Mental Illness, and Atheists

“Atheists avoid the inevitable conclusion of the existence of God by evasion and illusion.  In other words, misdirection and deceit.  Atheists are liars.  If this were not true, then, the situation for atheists would be even worse – they would be mental patients.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Artificial Intelligence Does Not Exist

“The existence of an artificial intelligence is not an alternative explanation to that of the existence of God because artificial intelligence is a metaphorical concept, not a literal concept.  In other words, artificial intelligence is not intelligence and there is no such thing as intelligence that is artificial.  What we call ‘artificial intelligence’ is actually a computer running a program that imitates product of the use of intelligence.  In other words, what we call ‘artificial intelligence’ is an imitating-intelligence-use-product program computer.  Essentially, this is simply a computer that gives the illusion of having intelligence.  Thus, there is only one possible explanation for the facts in evidence – the existence of God.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Somatocentrism, Supposed Infallibility of Human Perception, and Mental Health Patients

“Atheists are somatocentric in their thinking.  They believe in the infallibility of human perception.  Tell that to the millions of mental health patients, who have experienced, among a host of other things, sensory hallucinations of all types.”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Objective Reality

“No person has ever experienced objective reality (though they have experienced virtual objective reality).  This absence of experience is proven by the fact that all perception exists within the human psyche (though perception does have virtual existence outside of the human psyche).”
– Dr. Michael Bisconti

Mind-Brain Relationships

“The mind cannot be damaged.  The brain can be damaged.  The brain is powerless to do anything to the mind.  The mind is powerless to do anything to the brain.  However, the brain is a virtual mediator between the mind and the world.  If the brain is injured, it, in effect, loses some ability to mediate.  This means the mind cannot get correct or fully correct input from the world and the mind cannot give correct or fully correct output to the world.  However, there is a healing system governing the brain that tends to correct this situation.  This healing system tends to restore a virtual backup of the brain.  My experience with brain injury patients proves this to be the case.  That is, they tend to normalize over time.  However, the virtual backup of the brain can, itself, be damaged.  In this case, restoration can only proceed so far.  However, it is possible for people to defy the odds and recover completely.  My experience with brain injury patients proves this to be the case.”
