The existence or non-existence of any non-observable entity in the world is not settled by any single argument or consideration. Every premise will be based upon other concepts and principles that themselves must be justified. So ultimately, the adequacy of atheism as an explanatory hypothesis about what is real will depend upon the overall coherence, internal consistency, empirical confirmation, and explanatory success of a whole worldview within which atheism is only one small part. The question of whether or not there is a God sprawls onto related issues and positions about biology, physics, metaphysics, explanation, philosophy of science, ethics, philosophy of language, and epistemology. The reasonableness of atheism depends upon the overall adequacy of a whole conceptual and explanatory description of the world.
Commentary: I strongly believe this quote reflects and conforms with my holistic approach to all types of theoretical problems and manages to demonstrate how this particular issue is rooted in a network of many ”related issues” and cannot be extracted from it and thus analyzed in seperation, in a laboratory manner. You have to deal with a system as a whole to seriously deal with the question of God’s existence.
