..lets have a look at what you said to me again:
Sorry, that's a stretch and I'm sympathetic. Equating the falacy that is Santa to God? Um, no, not going to fly.
Your original point was atheism requires faith.. that would be agnosticism as faith implies someone is unsure and believes in something despite lack
of evidence. I'm not rejecting
god/s and choosing not
to have faith in it.. I just don't believe there is anything to believe
as there is no evidence.
I already stated why I don't believe and immediately
you dismissed my answer without regard for my own life experiences which is why I was
blunt in replying.. yet you then used my negative reaction to accuse me of 'sounding like a fundie'? please. You
were the one making claims
OK, PROVE IT to me then. And don't shoot me Santa, I don't believe in him.
You don't? So why should 'god' be any more believable to me? Thats my point and thats why I used santa as an example. Would you prefer me use Zeus
instead? They are all mythical beings to me so I don't see one as being more plausable than another. I'm sorry if this offends you but thats how I
PROVE THE LACK OF A HIGHER POWER.
PROVE THERE IS NO ZEUS or santa, Ganesh or guardian angels. Doesn't make sense does it? You are the one who said atheism requires faith.. which is
illogical as the whole concept of faith is believing in something thats not provable
.. and the concept of proof requires evidence.
Can't prove a negative. As I don't believe there is anything there.. why would I try disprove it? That would be saying I'm not sure. I'm atheist..
The ball's in your court.
I'm not going to 'prove' god doesn't exist as thats contradictory but I will try explain why I don't believe in it to you. take it or leave it
but please don't start dismissing my answers yet again.
E=mc2. The theory if relativity asserts nothing can exist outside of time and space so nothing can preceed it.. including 'sentient' energies.
Space, time matter and enery are in reality just different forms and dimensions of the same thing. This is one of the reasons I don't believe as the
concept of a creator god does not make any sense to me.
