Can you prove it does? common a picture, a paper sign with his name, a TV interview, you can do better than that.

Why?
Seems like you either have the warm fuzzies when you pray, or you see it as a waste of time.
Why not just be someone who can't see logical merit in anything religious but hopes there is more after death.. and live life as a decent human being?

Otherwise, I am sure a catholic priest is close to an atheist in the eyes of a southern baptist. Likewise someone with a oija game in the garage is a member of the faithful to a militant atheist.

cause to be honest that is the question.


It's not my burden to prove a negative.

Prove to me that a pink elephant orbiting an asteroid doesn't control the universe.

Same dilemma.

Do you want a likely false answer just to satisfy your need to know something or do you want to know the truth about origins?

You completely miss the irony of my post,

nobody can prove the none existence of god any more than they can prove it.

That is the moral lesson.

The burden of proof lies on both parties. You can't just say there is no evidence for his existence therefor that's proof for his non-existence. Non believers have to prove he is not real by explaining what did happen. And either way you look at it the question is what was the spark that tipped over the first domino? Neither side really has a definite answer yet. But by saying the burden of proof lies with the other party you give yourself a reason to stop searching for what really happened. Thats just lazy.lol

off course god exists, god is what created this universe

but that doesnt mean God is a person or even cares about planet earth

god is probably an event that happened to create our universe

and what is god's god ... who knows ... I am just saying, something created this universe, and that something is called God in my opinion

the real problem is that people, instead of thinking how, they just prefer to imagine a man in the sky ... thats $¨¨&#@

Seems to me that the burden of proof should be on those who believe in a pre-stone age fable to prove it does exist.

Let's say evolution is true for argument sake.


Evolution is proven to be a true process. However, it doesn't disprove god. Logic tends to suggest it is impossible to prove that something doesn't exist...think about it - how do you prove something DOES exist? You find proof right? How do you find proof for something not existing....?

Religious lies can easily be proved wrong but god (in whatever form) will never be disproved because it is completely impossible.

any god if it's the one that created everything we call life.


The emphasis on the word "We"....

Come on, think about it - it can't be an inclusive we, because some of us don't agree that he/she/it created life.

Tut tut.

That is disproving a particular religion's idea of god. Your argument provides a straw god. I guess that must make you feel better.

Incorrect. Those making a claim have the burden of proving that claim. It's that simple. People cannot go around dispelling any grandiose, unproven claim that anybody happens to dream up.

I have not once said that "there is no evidence for his existence therefore that's proof for his non-existence". I am open to evidence. I cannot, nor can anybody, disprove or debunk an unproven claim.

Religion doesn't require evidence to support it's claims, it relies on blind faith and nothing more. Religion is the one thing in which blind faith is applauded and considered an admirable trait to have...when it comes to everything else even the religious folks are a bit more rational, they would not consider blind faith a good trait to have in any other aspect of their lives.

Ah, so the "one true god" is a straw god. That should make the fundies feel good. Because noone has any straw from more than 6000 years ago.

"Threatening you're trolling" - sorry, can you explain that?

Your post implied you anticipated a furore' - and you seemingly welcome that, which is a little juvenille.

Maybe that's the sanest and most sensible place to be.

The bottom line is that there either is, or there isn't, a god.

If there is then it doesn't matter how elegant or logical are the arguments of atheists - they're plain wrong.

If there isn't then it doesn't matter how powerful is the faith and conviction of believers - they're simply deluded.

I suspect it's impossible for a pathetic little species like homo sapiens to be able to know for sure one way or the other. Anyone claiming to know for sure is displaying an arrogance way beyond their mental and spiritual capacity.

Probably best not to worry about it. There are probably more pressing problems to exercise our minds.
