Most people, even atheists, often at least recognize the possibility that God may exist but claim that it is very improbable.
But if God is defined as an immaterial being, is the notion of that even coherent? Is He dare I say impossible? When something is deemed to be logically impossible, it is unimaginable and leads to a contradiction.
Now in order to establish a contradiction in a phrase, the phrase must obviously first mean something. But in what sense can a being ever be immaterial? Can you imagine one? The very notion of a being seems to imply physicality. Even beings that seem to have “immaterial” experiences such as humans seem to have “materialness” pictured fundamentally within the concept. Can you imagine an immaterial human or is there always a physical component such as the human body that makes up that object in your imagination?
Strip a human being of all its physical parts and imagine it to immaterially exist. Can you? Many have argued that this can be done through the concept of a soul but in what sense would a soul exist? When imagining a soul, most, I bet would still imagine some sort of ghastly or ghostly figure that is ultimately material in the sense of it at least taking a form or some shape.
So, can one definitively say that an immaterial god, who has the powers that he is imagined to have, cannot exist?
