Tea Requires Water: An Analogy (via Mike Robinson)

Tea Requires Water: An Analogy (via Mike Robinson)

  • A cup of tea is wet, quenches the thirst, spills, and freezes.
  • Water is wet, quenches the thirst, spills, and freezes.
  • However, water doesn’t need tea to be water. The tea needs water to be tea.
  • Drinkable tea presupposes and requires water.

And the laws of logic presuppose and require the Triune God:

  • The laws of logic are immutable, universal, and true.
  • Allah is not immutable, universal, and true (he deceives and he lacks real attributes including immutability and truthfulness).
  • Allah is not sufficient to account for the laws of logic.
  • The Triune God is immutable, universal, and true.
  • The Triune God is sufficient to account for the laws of logic.
  • Human experience presupposes and requires the laws of logic.
  • Human experience presupposes and requires the Triune God.

Transcendental analysis of Islam demonstrates that it is self-defeating inasmuch as it fails to give what it does not possess: immutable universals including the laws of logic and objective moral values.[1]
