Can Religions be Assessed Objectively?
Frederic Lamond

Editors Introduction Frederic Lamond, lecturer in philosophy at Wernberg University in Austria, argues that there is a pragmatic test for the existence of one or more deities: do they answer prayers or invocations? He argues that on that basis, every deity of every faith has proved his or her existence. In this lecture he sets out to define these "deities" : are they thought forms of the human mind, archetypes or in fact "gateways to forces of life or of the cosmos?"

Frederic Lamond argues for the existence of deities.
