Definitely agree with that last point. If the human species hadnd't thought of the idea of appeasing 'gods', and thus putting up a still quite dominant barrier to the reality of the perhaps more rapid advance of information about the univers, well, who knows where our history might have taken us!!Quote
The problems of pantheism are not apparent to me. Pantheism is what I'm left with when I work through monotheism and atheism. But here's a thought: we're only debating these terms because it has been decided for us that our philosophy should revolve around the word "theos".
That is where the logic, and the total lack of evidence for the non-natural, leads.Quote
And to answer your question, the problem of athiesm is what we've been talking about at length: the failure of naturalism to account for the low-entropy beginning of the Universe. (I conflate atheism with naturalism because the two go hand in hand, and it's rare to find an atheist who is not a naturalist.)
