    Proving the absence of unicorns in my house is pretty impossible....

    They could be hiding when i walk into the room
    I mean.. I could put in cctv... but unicorns might be undetectable by cameras


    So.. I can't think of a single way i can prove there are no unicorns in my house...

    If nothing else, what have you got to lose by NOT believing?

    Outerspace, planets, more magnetic feilds, other planets having to do nothing but just sit there, waiting for us to ruin them? Nope sorry I would understand their own privacy too, even if there was a higher being somesort, i would simply refuse it too, because I am a down to earth man, more of a unconsciousness thinker outside of the box.

    Proving that something--anything--doesn't exist is much more difficult than proving it does. I really have no idea how to conclusively prove God doesn't exist. :thinking:

    The argument goes like this:
    `I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, `for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
    `But,' says Man, `The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.'
    `Oh dear,' says God, `I hadn't thought of that,' and promptly disappears in a puff of logic.
    `Oh, that was easy,' says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.

    Of course most leading theologians claim that this argument isn't worth a pair of fetid dingo's kidneys...

    In software terms - You can never prove the absence of bugs, only their presence.
    Therefore your software quality is only as good as your test cases. But I digress..

    But back to God - the default state for me is non-existence. It's up to the believers to prove it to me, using actual evidence. Otherwise God's existence is not fact, it's a pure belief.
    In the absence of evidence, then people come up with their own theories/beliefs to explain how things work.

    What would it take? Well for example, proof that it was possible to spontaneously turn water into wine, as described in some historical textbook.

    Did I answer that the wrong way round?
    Proof of no God? I don't need any.

    Oh God Dear father please forgive the Heathen thoughts of the individuals that don't believe in your existence because they do not know what they do. Oh Dear God please don't cast down death, famine and destruction to those individuals who take thy Lord's name in vain. Oh Dear God please cast down a situation that will show them you do exist.

    Amen

  15. Google DOES exist, for God sake.

    You just have to believe the information it deems to give us mere mortals.

    Believing millions of individual messages are sent invisibly and immaterially "over the air" concurrently is stretching it a fair bit for me personally, but I should have "faith" I guess.

    Am I in the right thread? Do people believe Google doesn't exist? I lost my reading glasses.

  18. Looking at the image of my magnificence in the mirror leads me to believe in a higher being.

    No way this happened by chance.

    Well done again to Him, or Her!

    hahaha LOL

    funny posts.... :) tanks


    if you believe in or not believe GOD.. that is NOT the point of this post.
    question is... if you could get proof .. what would be the best proof of NO GOD?

    If there's a question of the existence of God that mean there's a question of doubt no matter how one try to sugarcoat the question. Does the word blasphemy come to mine at some point?
    Let me give you a hand on how one can prove God exist.
    You have a cancer riddled relative and the doctor say they have a few months to live and all of a sudden they make a miraculous recovery and become cancer free and the doctors cannot explain the reason why that person lived. Is it chance that person beat that cancer or was it God because in the doctor's eyes that relative was dead but they hadn't fully closed there eyes yet. Someone been in a head-on collision in a car accident everybody died but the 6 month old baby... was that chance or was that God they saved that child's live. The Sun the air the water the blue sky, All those elements are not there by chance that's Gods creations. So there shouldn't be no question, is there proof because that should be proof enough right there. And let's not forget you wake up on the right side of the dirt every morning because if there were no God you may succumb to death in your sleep and they say it was natural causes or it could be that God has turned his back on them because they were a non-believer.

    Doubt isn't blasphemy.

    Blasphemy was when US televangelist Oral Roberts told his followers that God hds told him that if he didn't reach the target of his latest fundraising campaign he would be "called home". Accusing God of demanding money with menaces, that was blasphemy.

    In all those situations... how can you prove that it wasn't chance...

    I get the idea, that IF YOU ALREADY believe in G*D then anyone would attribute those positive outcomes to him. But it doesn't provide proof.... And then there are the questions about the large number of negative outcomes in those situations.

    Many people do die in their sleep... so.... er...um.... what does that prove exactly?

    those things are not proof to anything...
    there are many good and bad thing in the world.

    saying all good things.. are proof of God's grace
    and all bad things .. are proof of his displeasure?????

    i understand what you are .. TRYING TO SAY.
    but i think your bias to the subjects ...has colored the view of all situations.

    good people die and evil people get rewarded
    all the time..
