No matter the specific trade in the world of wood working, all use the square. It is as essential and often more essential than the tape measure. If one's square is not true, bad things happen. Lets use the square in the picture above as an example. This is a typical framing square and is used for a myriad of jobs. One of these jobs is laying out stair stringers. These are the boards that get notched out and hold your stair treads. Yes the boards that you actually walk on to climb stairs. At the base of this stringer where it meets the floor you have a cut called a "level cut". This cut has to be a very specific angle which after some fairly basic math should match up with how many treads one needs, as well as meeting the next level or floor precisely. If this cut is off by even a fraction of a degree each stair tread will begin to compound the wrong angle, until the top few stair treads are a legitimate danger to those who use them. Lets say that the bottom angle is 1/32 of an inch out of level. Doesn't sound like much. This is .0312 inches. Because one generally lays out the position and angle of the treads based on the one previous to it, this amount would compound. The top tread on a stair case of ten stairs would be nearly 3/8" out of level. You would feel as if you are either leaning heavily backward, or you would trip on the front lip as you tried to climb it. I am sure you can think of a time when you were climbing a set of stairs and there was that one stair that always made you trip.
You see the framing square is a standard. It must be accurate in its construction to be relied upon. We can test it to see if it is indeed square, and then trust it by which to do true work. We also trust our minds to do true and accurate work. We use the laws of logic with our minds to weigh wether or not something is true or false. Yet the Atheist has a problem. You see the Atheist believes that we are nothing more than molecules which over time became living breathing things, and then eventually humans. Yes thats right, our brains are a result of a mindless unguided physical process, yet they trust their brains to reason logically.
Let us apply this same reasoning to our simple carpenter's square. First we must get beyond the obvious ridiculous notion that such a tool could be obtained from a random unguided process of chemical chaos. If you were to hand a carpenter a framing square such as the one above and tell him that it was the result of no design, no care to its precision or construction, a product of random cause and effect events, he would have no reason to trust it. He would have an impossible time building a house that wouldn't fall down.
Such is the belief of those that proclaim "There is no God".
