Of course it remains. Declaring that it's the end of the world is 1) a bigger task than I'm capable of accompolishing. 2) Moot, if you have predetermined that the book which suggests an "end to the world" is false.

I'm only raising the point that there have been A LOT of earthquakes. That, taken into consideration along with what we have witnessed in the 20th century concerning the annihilation humans, an attempt to relativize good and evil, an the development of the means by which to destroy the entire planet many times over... all this gives me, a believer in that book (mentioned above) pause to think.

Better question: If this God, nor any other exists, what's wrong with sex slavery? Good luck with that.

>>What presupposition do your arguments begin with?

You misunderstand. "Reason" is "how" you argue. Any particular argument though begins with an assumption/pressuposition of some kind. ANY argument.

But let's accept your answer for a moment. Use your presupposition then, "reason", to explain to me WHY you begin with that presupposition.

Good luck with that too.
