Yes, exactly. That totally destroys the validity of Islam as a specific claim to “truth” in such a world, where any explanation is valid, no?

This is really bizarre. I am not understanding why you think that saying “I have an explanation that is not any better than the explanation you currently hold on a logical level” to a religious person would make them doubt anything. Can you elaborate?

Atheism makes no such specificity to its claims, it just says “I don’t know”. In a world of chaos, kind of makes it the default position, no?

Atheism says “There is no such thing as the supernatural” in a world where the supernatural is real, and an explanation that the supernatural is not real requires assuming more improbable things than that the supernatural is real.

To put it another way: The correct view of the Marvel universe is that it is being created, moment-to-moment, by an omnipotent creator. That is the reality of the universe: It is entirely intelligently designed, entirely depended on a creator. And yet you, somehow, think that atheism is rational in a universe that is literally created by a being with absolutely control over that universe.

Atheism, in that universe, would simply be one of a large number of wrong theories. It would be one of the worse of those theories, farthest from the truth. Islam would be a much closer explanation to reality.
