You can't prove that it's an entity, the pursuit of truth does not mean blindly accepting theory, especially from the immaturity of ancient man; it's
obvious - look how backward some of the moral and ethical teaching is.
Searching for the truth doesn't mean buying any old theory, the universe could be infinity, but i'd be a fool to say that's what it is for sure.
I don't know what the cause of the universe is, no scientist does.....yet we're supposed to trust religion with the answer.....when they honestly
thought disease and natural disaster was "punishment" from a God, how little they knew.
I'm an agnostic atheist; humble enough to admit "i don't know" but open-minded enough to renounce my Atheism as soon as someone provides evidence of
an omnipotent being.
To get me to submit to any religion, someone would need to prove an omnipotent being exists, and then go further and prove that he meets the
description of a specific religion.
Bearing in mind, that, even if The God of abrahamic scripture IS in fact the TRUTH, i would still not submit because i believe him to be malevolent,
capricious and jealous. The andromeda gallaxy is set on a collision course with our own, pretty intelligent design, i'd say.
I don't expect you to respond to my points in kind, all but a few ever do.
So what if i offend? Just because someone has a belief doesn't autmatically guaratee it's respect, this is the same in any other arena of debate;
medicine, politics, sport etc.
Although no one can prove God does not exist, no one can prove God does, therefore - why would i trust anyone claiming to know without evidence.
Personal experience is nul and void in terms of any debate. A personal experience to you could be "GOD" but to me; something else.
