Someone sent me a link to the following argument.
1.(1) If Calvinism is true, there is no free will
2.(2) The logical problem of evil is defeated only by Plantinga’s Free Will Defense
3.(3) Plantinga’s Free Will Defense requires that there exist free will
4.(4) If Calvinism is true, the logical problem of evil is not defeated
5.(5) If the logical problem of evil is not defeated, God does not exist
6.(6) If Calvinism is true, God does not exist
7.(7) God does exist
8.(8) Calvinism is false
9.(9) Human beings have free will
Lots of problems here.
1. This apparently assumes libertarian free will as the definition of free will. Libertarian free will is self-refuting by the way.
2. Have fun trying to show that the only way to defeat the logical problem of evil is through libertarian freewill. Not only does this universal negative appear extremely difficult to support, but it is false as there is an answer to the problem of evil that is not Plantinga’s.
3. This premise is false as Plantinga’s argument does not require that libertarian free will actually exists but only suggests it as a possibility within the argument.
4. This premise is also not only false, but left unsupported.
I think this is sufficient for now.
