👀 Watch as Rabbi Daniel Rowe reacts to atheist Ricky Gervais' famous interview. Gervais is reacting to a satirical interview asking for proofs of God, and responds with some common atheistic arguments: that atheism makes no claims at all, and that even believers have gotten rid of most gods, so why not one more? Rabbi Rowe takes issue with both those arguments, arguing that, in fact, to not accept the existence of God involves invoking past-infinities or something from nothing. He also argues that the word God when referring to a First Cause outside of space and time, is not remotely similar to super-human mythological gods.
