@ patchouly you are not going to win making definitive statements that there is no god as you shift the burden of proof off the theist and onto yourself you cannot prove a negative and being forced to will always make you lose..

My parents are non religious as am I.

Because the term God is a broad subject with different interpretations while the Eastern Bunny is a being that was supposed to physically exist on Earth but does not.

Now show me your actual solid evidence that prove such a theory can`t exist. That would be me asking exactly what you ask for.

The convolution comes from me having to explain the same thing over and over to you, in several different fashions to help you understand it. Overall, the point is a simple one: There is zero proof that God exists. Only a belief that he does, based on what your parents told you. Parental proclamation does not make something real and, devoid of any other evidence, any sane person cannot say that God is real. How can someone say the Easter Bunny is fake and then use the same logic to declare God as real?

The proof is that there is no proof that he does exist. The same way it prove there is no Easter Bunny.

"In a letter directly to Martel, Barack Obama described Life of Pi as "an elegant proof of God, and the power of storytelling""

Wow. I. Um. What? er, well... what did I just watch? That was really weird... that couldn`t be real could it? I mean, a greedy God justification for his existence... I`m not a religious person, nor am I an atheist, but that was just weird.

it seems the trap people are falling into is burden of truth.. if you make definite statements like i know god does exist or i know god does not exist you have to provide evidence to back up these statements. so as i see it we can only counter statments from theists as we cant prove a negative. so to clarify my statement is that i am an athiest as i have not seen sufficent evidence to back up the claim god exists but if provided with strong enough evidence i will reconsider... although there are others in the athiest community who claim certainty that god does not exist but they have a equal burden of proof to prove god does not exist..

"the Question of the Universe may never be answered, so why worry about it?"

Some people are ok with not knowing everything and some people aren`t. People who aren`t ok with uncertainty are vulnerable to those who claim to be able to provide certainty-but for a price.

Of course I don`t. I don`t suggest that I`m correct with my theories. Just that I have them. It`s a far cry from basing my entire belief system on it. When I say I think the Universe came from... I`m just guessing. If you say I`m wrong because of... then I will rethink my theory, based on evidence and go with something else. What Christians fail to understand is, Atheists don`t spend a whole lot of time wondering where we came from. There is no God and the Question of the Universe may never be answered, so why worry about it? We come up with a plausible explanation, based on scientific findings and go with it. The important thing is to stop the cancer that is religion. Put an end to it`s tyranny and replace it with morals and common sense.

No evidence is required to disprove. Only to prove. If I had to bring forward evidence to disprove every single ridiculous claim, I`d spend the rest of my life debunking everything. Luckily, the onus is on the Christians to prove and, to date, there is zero evidence.

Oh bloody hell. Look- you cannot prove God does not exist in some form- however unlikely or illogical that may seem. What you CAN do though is prove claims about the nature of God to be wrong... which means most Gods worshipped are out....

@McGovern1981,
You see, I don`t have to prove my theories (and that`s all they are is theories). What I think happened has nothing to do with the argument against God. This shouldn`t be a "I believe in God until something better comes along" type thing. I believe that we don`t know where things came from. There are some very good theories out there, but in the end, we don`t know. What I can tell you is, we can safely rule out a Christian God. That one has been proven fake beyond a shadow of a doubt. So...now we look at other options. Other possibilities.

What amazes me is the way Christians cling to "faith", even though it has been disproven. It`s time to give that one up and look at other options. It`s very obvious from the outside. All you have to do is step back and look at it. Try to undo the brainwashing. Think about what they told you and how that could be used to manipulate you.

@papajon0s1,
And I disagree with you. By your logic, we can assume that everything is real. What proof do you have that there is no Easter bunny? Why do you assume that God is real and the Easter bunny is not? Neither have any proof (although the fact the chocolate showed up when I was a kid is more proof of the Easter Bunny than you have of God.) In the end, it`s simple...neither is real because there is no proof of the existence of either one.

For something to be real, there needs to be some sort of concrete proof. Faith is the name they give the brainwashing you endure as a child. They have to call it faith because there is nothing else to go on.

@McGovern1981,
What I believe is irreverent to the argument. Without any proof, you can`t believe in something.

I disagree with Patchouly; You committed a "argumentum ad ignorantiam", a logical fallacy that a proposition is true because it has not yet been proven false (or vice versa). Now, you are certainly entitled to your opinion, have at it sir! I`m just saying it may not hold up under scrutiny. That is why I don`t claim I have any proof of God`s existence; I simply have faith, which is belief without proof. I don`t claim to speak for the Lord, but I`d have to think the rule should be compassion for all or you really aren`t getting the Christian message.

@Patch

SO you have the answers to the unanswerable because you read a science book by probably Dawkins.... and think I`m being narrow minded....

Let see you think the universe A. was nothing then exploded or B. In some state always has and always will be. Doesn`t that sound a lot like some of the things you can`t stop criticizing?

Brainwashed because I don`t believe exactly what you do.... Well for one I`m not religious but I can see that you act just like a fundy just believe another thing.

But there is. Because there is zero proof of God; he can`t exist. Simple as that. The only reason believers believe is because they were brainwashed to believe as children by a church that wants money and power. I don`t need to prove science to disprove God. If you can break away from the brainwashing and look at it with fresh eyes, the whole thing falls apart like a shabby house of cards.

LOL have you ever seen these type of posts comments?

Theist: "I know there`s a god for sure you`re all stupid I`m so smart!"

Atheist:"I know there is no god for sure you`re all stupid I`m so smart!"

Circle jerk for pages....

There is no way to know.

I would think that people tithe because they want to. Not because they have to. I guess it depends on the religion and the individual.

Wow, I am surprised. IAB`s comment commanders aren`t here.

Don`t they realize that we give a F about every stupid comment they make on nearly every post, even though it is the same garbage every time.

Cmon 5cats, mcgrendal, and crakr. Why aren`t you here setting us straight. No post is complete without you dips#its telling everyone what to think, and calling us liberal when we think you suck?
