A2 R.E Implications help! Watch
-For Ayer it is the case that's God's existence cannot be demonstrated to be even probable. For example the teleological argument cannot be accepted as proof, even though it relies on empirical data, because otherwise 'God exists' would be symnonous. (Unsure of the spelling).
- you can talk about how Ayer attacks the design argument and how he goes one step further by attacking language (throughout the extract he changes the name of God to names such as Jehovah, as he believes calling God by the same name would make him real.
- looking at his opinion on monotheistic religions Ayer believes we can't have belief in transcendent objects and still have transcendent proofs about our world.
If you need help on a particular paragraph of Ayers extract just let me know
I am working through Ayer and understand the content but just not sure how to set it out?
Also for part B, do you put your opinion and implications for religion/human experience together, or do them separately?
