Atheistic view no grounds for argument

THE EDITOR, Sir:

In the January 24, 2017 edition of The Gleaner, Jim Spence commented on a letter from Ewin James regarding the existence of God.

Mr Spence critiqued Mr James' arguments. I didn't read Mr James' letter and, therefore, can't comment on it.

However, in refuting Mr James' claim that there is a God, Mr Spence dismissed that argument on the grounds that Mr James' arguments lacked evidence or conclusive logic. Nevertheless, in support of his own position that there is no God, Mr Spence simply declared: "I know in my heart that there is no god."

His assertion, which lacks supporting evidence or conclusive logic, is therefore highly unlikely to be persuasive.
