In a murder trial if there is unsummountable proof that the defendant is guilty then it is accepted as truth that they are guilty. Why can't the
evidence based system work for religion? I'll tell you why, because billions of people worldwide will have to admit that they have believed in a lie
since childhood and if there's one thing more than anything that the human race hate doing it's admitting that they are wrong.
If you are going to take this approach, then I have to say that there is evidence for religion everywhere. People practice their religion every day.
Go to a church, a mosque, or a synagogue, and you will see evidence of religion.
Now, God and the afterlife, there is no hard evidence either way (so therefore, neither side can be assumed to be correct). It is all up to the
person's interpretation. However, if you look around you and see the beauty of this world, and the order of things, it cannot be by chance. Someone or
something, I believe, has played a part in the overall orchestration of what we know and call reality. Whether it be God, a computer simulation,
aliens, whatever it may be, it is all too carefully orchestrated to be a stoke of luck that happened to result in where we are today. But, then again,
that is what I believe. And I am not going to try to convince you that I am right, because as long as I believe it, then that is all that matters.
And I agree with your last line in that quote. I know a few people like that.
