I tend to have very little patience with people who try to prove the existence of God. I favorably quote Douglas Adams on the matter of faith, even though he is a noted atheist. I've also done my part to refute so-called proofs of faith like the Kalam Cosmological Argument. So, when I read over at Good Math, Bad Math about a supposedly mathematical proof of God from a muslim, I was compelled to reply. I left the mathematical rebuttal to Chu-Carroll and addressed the argument from a more theological perspective. This sort of thing always gets under my skin.
