However, the Bible is one of the only ‘holy books’ that encourages its readers to examine the facts for themselves and determine what is true (NRSV 1 Thes. 5:21). He further supports our scientific investigations in many verses like Proverbs 2:6 (ESV) where He promises to give wisdom and understanding; He also told Moses to tell the people in Exodus 31:3-4 (NIV) that he filled the people with wisdom, understanding, knowledge and all kinds of skills.

This type of censorship is detrimental to the development of our children as they become indoctrinated from a very early age with false teachings. However, according to Paul, even then they will not be without excuse as creation itself makes it plain that there is a Creator and His qualities are evident in the beauty and detail of what’s been created (Romans 1:20).
Examine the strengths and weakness of the argument for the existence of God based on Religious Experience (18) Religious experience presents an argument for the existence of God far different from more traditional teleological or cosmological arguments; its defining feature being an inductive argument with a posteriori factors of experience. A religious experience means there has been an encounter with the divine, making it backed among religious believers as convincing evidence of God. Religious experiences occur in an extraordinary way that does not apply to straight forward empiricism, but rather happen in a spiritual, mystical or religious condition.
