    Is this Van Til quote real or bogus?
    “The only proof for the existence of God is that without God you couldn’t prove anything.”

      Great question and idea for a quote topic. Doing a quick search, it appears the word “proof” occurs 472 times in 275 articles. It will take me some time to research and put together a page of quotes, leading to the answer. Thank you for asking, and patience. 🙂

      I believe the quote originated with Gregg Bahnsen coming from CVT’s position on the matter.

        “I hold that belief in God is not merely as reasonable as other belief, or even a little or infinitely more probably true than other belief; I hold rather that unless you believe in God you can logically believe in nothing else” ― Cornelius Van Til

        This was Van Til’s statement

        Thank you. Could you please tell me where that quote comes from, so I can prove it to others?

        Thank you. Is the book online so I can do a word search?
        Otherwise, do you have a page number?
