The Argument from Self Refuting Worldviews


While snowboarding in Japan I wore orange tinted goggles which coloured everything orange. But after a while I’d adjust to them and totally forget that I was wearing them.  Worldviews are just like this. Everyone has a worldview, but most of us are unaware of it and how this set of beliefs colours how we see the world. Even if you think you don’t have these beliefs, isn’t that a belief in itself?

The question is not whether or not you have a worldview but whether or not your worldview is the right one.  However, all non-biblical worldviews are self-refuting. They break laws of logic such as the law of non-contradiction – something can’t be right while simultaneously being wrong.
The biblical worldview is internally consistent and accounts for universal laws, such as the laws of logic, laws of nature, and laws of morality.  These laws exist because they are a reflection of the character and mind of God.  In contrast, other worldviews cannot account for these laws adequately. For example, if the evolutionary worldview is true and we just evolved by chance random processes, there would be no basis for any universal laws to exist. How would you even know that your brain had evolved the correct thinking processes in order to actually know anything?
