[quote="Fallen_Horse"]I want you to provide proof that God does not exist. Go.
Mr Horse, I get the feeling your clinging onto some kind of hope that there is a god out there? Maybe you have been in the grasp of religion in the past and it still has a stranglehold on you?
Is it not the case that time and scientific enquiry is gradually disproving every held religious belief about a god?
Is it not the case that religion is a man made concept, a human belief system born out of our need to understand the world in all its complexity before science as we know it was born? Both science and religion are manifestations of our need to find patterns in things.
Is it not the case that we can explain the processes of the origins of the universe right back to the big bang, without needing to resort to divine intervention?
Is it not the case that if their was a god, all powerful, all prevailing, an advanced entity, the question arises who created god?
I think the problem here are the words religious and atheist, they are two words in mortal battle each trying to destroy each other. Instead, If I say I am a rationalist, believing in empirical evidence for my personal understanding of my place in the universe, can you argue against that? My belief is in complexity from the breaking down of symmetry at atomic level over time, a universe created by chance, not the supernatural.
If we as me way well do destroy ourselves and this planet, would not god die with us? Do you think god exists without humanity?
