Definition of his atheism
Does not believe in a higher power
God does not believe in a higher power that created him. He is alpha and omega. That is the same as Atheism, that the universe started on it's own.
One could say that a human was designed due to its complexity. It is similar to how our computers were designed by Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, instead of being formed by chance. Our bodies are even more complex than computers, therefore they must have been designed. However, the designer must be designed if that were the case.
The animation was designed by the computer, was designed by Bill Gates, was designed by God, was designed by what?
God made no mention of what designed him, therefore he is an Atheist. In some versions of Christianity (Mormons), God does have a God, but as far as I know, there is no mention in the Bible about God's God (or God's God's God).
Pro is assuming that God thinks on a human level and is, therefore, capable of believing concepts. In truth, God would be all knowing as he is all powerful, and would, therefore, be simply unable to "believe". The mere speculation that God was created by another God would simply be an expansion of what God is.
Pro said that one "could" be designed via intelligence due to human complexity and God would follow in his respective design, already acknowledging that this may not be the case. In addition, although there is an argument for intelligent design, that design is scientific and evolutionary. Again, one sees that pro, despite arguing for the existence of "belief" in an all knowing being, indicates that he understanding of that being is in a very limited human approach, almost assuming that God is simply a magical matter creating being that travels alongside us in a three dimensional, linear pattern.
The notion that Pro considers the fact that technology is simple and humans are more sophisticated suggests that technological progression shall not exceed human's, in complexity, is simply a lack of foresight. The fact that he also uses this as an arguing point is a fallacy.
Pro's conclusion is, therefore, undermined in its generalised idea and subsequent speculations. Furthermore, Sects of Christianity do no define what God is, but even Biblical passages would maintain that God was the only one true God. That all other God's were false and that he knowledge is perfect. I do not personally believe these doctrines, your contradictions to the Bible undermines the arguments you base on the Bible.
Atheism is the disbelief in a higher power. Since God says he's the highest power, he's an atheist. That simple.
"...All knowing and all powerful, cannot believe" You do have a point there. However, logically-speaking it is impossible to be able to do everything. "If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?" One cannot prove this, only test it when someone DOES hear it. "Draw a four-sided triangle." Impossible without changing the definition of a triangle.
It is impossible to know anything that happened before birth, unless you are given a sign of the past. Signs include history books, parent conversations, photos, etc. There wasn't even a mention of what happened before Gen 1:1. There was no mention even on why he created the universe.
If God does exist outside time, that means it would be impossible for Him to communicate with Adam, etc. Speaking words requires time. Therefore God does not exist outside time.
Then, He and the Universe must have been "created" spontaneously if he had no higher being. Similar to the Big Bang, only God is the start, not life. It is just as logical to say Animals and Humans are the start.
Anyway, I did not expect this debate (I did not even know that debates could be requested.)
