This paper contends that when contemplating the existence of a Divine creator or 'God', if approached with any seriousness or true reason, only one possible outcome can be reached. God simply does not exist. It looks at how this conclusion is not arrived upon lightly, but remains the only logical conclusion once all things are considered from a purely objective point of view. The paper attempts to show that a series of dilemmas, contradictions and illogical theories plague anyone attempting to justify the existence of such a being.
From the Paper:"The first thing one must consider when debating the existence of God is how exactly one defines 'God'. Ambiguity remains the sole supporting factor of almost all theological concepts, because the inability to specifically define and dissect an idea prevents one from being able to disprove or invalidate it. For the purposes of this paper I will be considering the Judea Christian interpretation of the Lord. Through this interpretation God is defined as the all-good (omnibenevolent), all-knowing (omniscient), and all-powerful (omnipotent) creator of the universe. This immediately brings one to the first set of contradictions associated with such a belief. Such concepts as omniscience, omnipotence and omnibenevolence are very definitive terms, with literally no room for varying interpretations. "
