Apologetic Failures

The promotion of religion is based on the appeal of ceremony and apologetic arguments that are convincing only to the already convinced.All arguments for the existence of gods, viz supernatural entities, have been refuted or have failed. Fideism and deism have become the last refuges of refuted theology.

Modern apologetics has fallen back on emotional apologetics, which fails in its turn because religion is not necessary for moral conduct, community, or the attainment of a sense of psychological purpose.

Modern science has disproven the physical claims within the Book of Genesis and miraculous claims within the Bible, and has effectively demonstrated that physical death spells the end of consciousness.
