Isn't that the same thing as the physicians a few hundred years ago saying ... 'until you prove germs exist, they don't. Period'??
Those people didn't believe germs were real. Germs had been discussed as a possibility amongst scientists and doctors, but most said 'hogwash'. And
yet, even though at that time it couldn't be proven that germs were real .. they were indeed real. Evidence of the germs were everywhere (in sickness
and diseases) even though the germs themselves were too small to see .. YET.
To a certain degree yes it is the same. Until germs were proven to exist, they didn't exist. Like I said, I have been trying to prove the existence of
God my whole life, I am open to it. I can't do it, no matter how hard I try. So I am asking for help to say lets do it once and for all and stop this
discussion. It appears it is more important to banter about my proving a negative instead.
We can talk about the theory of Germs and God all day long. Until something is proven to exist, it is only theory.
Edit: Please don't think that I only have a problem with Christians. I have a problem with all religions. The difference between germs and God is that
people have been killing each other over their belief in God for thousands and thousands of years and it is wasteful. I don't assume any of you are
killing people over religion, but you aren't helping either. I think it is disgusting what people do to each other because of religious ideas.
