Stephan Unger Posted over 1 year ago About Theism-Atheism: why is it assumed that these two "Poles" cover the whole question? What about the alternatives.? There are no other alternatives since the question has only two answers. Is there a god or not. Science has made hundrets of contributions. There are many theological and philosophical texts that deal with the question about the dichotomy of beeing a theist or not. Biology can exmplain why we belief in a god and history can explain how religion has developed, but the abstract question "is there a god or not" can never be answered since the definition of a god makes the clain nonfalsifiable and every rational statement has to be falisifiable.
