Yes just like the person you were replying to said. By seeing proof of god you mean an intangible feeling that could just all be in your head.
You have to admit that the proof of god Christians see daily COULD be all in your head. Right?

Oh, nice little baiting trick. But America is not the topic, nor is it at all relevant. Keep your political barbs to the political forums. At least America requires child molestation to be reported to the proper authorities, unlike certain religious establishments.
The biggest problem with this thread is that the OP is asking for "good evidence" in favor of atheism. However, we're relying on the OP to admit good evidence when he sees it - and given how much of his belief system is established on "faith", it can be safely suggested that leaving the definition of "good evidence" to his discretion qualifies this thread as nothing other than exactly a trap. He doesn't want there to be any good evidence, so why would he admit it when he sees it?
Stop wasting your time, folks. This is a troll thread.
Once again this is not what I believe. I believe that God is probable and therefore choose to put my faith in Him. Why do I think He is probable because of the Laws of Logic and Reason and Science, and because I have experienced Him. Now, while personal experience is not proof it is a good reason for personal faith.

No... We have lower
Rates per capita in all the violent crimes , then almost any culture in history. In Rome petaphilia was accepted. Hell in America slavery was legal till the last century and a half! Society has only improved with time knowledge and technology.
While if you wanna see what happens when religion rules society. All you gotta do is look at dark ages Europe and the Arab world now. Religion has caused far more trouble then it's fixed. There was no golden age where prayer in school made our society better. While we were praying in schools we were burning crosses in black peoples front yards.
