Hi! What is your name?____________________
Well its nice to meet you____________, I am
gland we can continue our conversation. How do
you feel about “Truth”? Can anybody know what
the truth is?
Christians, we believe the Bible has revealed
“The Truth”, Jesus said He is “Truth”. The
Bible reveals the reality of life)
What examples of “Truth” are knowable even for
an agnostic or atheist?
_________How do you “Know you cannot know
truth? Isn’t that a contradiction, you say you
cannot know truth, yet you make a statement,
showing you “know truth”?
(Many people believe truth is subjective and
unknowable while at the same time they believe
they are “Right” and “know truth”. Here the
Christian exposes the self-refuting statement.)
Can you think of other self-refuting statements
____________ Yes! I am telling you one view has
to be right and others wrong. After all you
feel you are right. In addition, many of the
different religions contradict each other. The
Atheist and the Muslim can’t both be right, one
says God exists the other says God
does not exist.. It just not possible for
everybody to be right, no matter how nice it
(In our society we are trained to think
everybody is right, and there is no such thing
as truth... For this reason, a statement like
one view is right and others wrong can come
across as “Intolerant” and “negative”. Think of
a world where everybody is right and everything
true.) Here the object is to help the
agnostic/seeker understand, everybody cannot be
right in a logical world.
Give some example of contradictory beliefs which
cannot both be right?
I understand what you wish were true, but its
just not possible. We live in a real world,
with real. Many scientist “Believe” we evolved
from micro-organism, they teach this as
“Truth”. They believe this is reality? While I
reject their reality, I believe God created the
first humans (Adam and Eve). We can’t both be
right, Here are the options.
I am right, they are wrong
I am Wrong, they are right
The same goes with existence of God, I believe
God exists, the Atheist does not
I am right ....God exists, I am wrong...God
does not exist.
So, how do we know who is right?
1.b Hi my name is _______________ What is yours?____________
2b. You know __________ , That’s a great question, I think many people
have different answers on what is true.
Personally as an Agnostic I don’t believe you
can “know Truth”. We can all take a guess at it
but we can’t know it.
the self-defeating statement made here, the
agnostic says you cannot “know truth”. How does
he “know that is true?” If you cannot know
Well _____________, You know what I mean; you are just
playing word games. I merely saying, there is
know way “know what reality is”. Everybody has
a different view of what is true, Atheists
believe there is no God, Jews, Muslims and
Christians believe there is a God, then you
through in everybody else and you thousands of
different “Truths”. Are you telling me one view
is right and others wrong?
(Again the agnostic falls into a self-defeating position,
he claims truth is unknowable, citing example of
different religions, all while claiming “He
knows” you “Can’t know”.)
What is the appeal of the above question in 3b?
4b. How is it possible to know who is right and who is wrong? Do you
really believe just one person or one group has
the “Truth” and everybody else is wrong? Do you
know how arrogant that is?
Is the agnostic is appealing to logic or emotion at this
How do they statements make you feel about being right or
What can you say in response?_____________
5b. So how can anybody know what is True?
