my belief. it is stupid to argue there will never truly be physical evidence.. I think of God in the same way I think of Winning the Lottery. The chances are almost zero, but man what fun it would be.

It is practically impossible to prove that something does not exist. For instance, try to prove there are not invisible ghosts rubbing their butts on your face at all moments of the day. You can't, because it cannot be done. It is not an atheists responsibility to prove the lack of existence of God. It is the responsibility of those that believe to provide evidence.

Being asked to prove that he does not exist makes no sense; you can't prove a negative. (The negative in this case being that he does not exist.) Plus the burden of proof lies with the person making the proposal, and since there is no proof of god, it is their job to prove it.

How would you ever find evidence that god isn't real? that's impossible, and that argument, frankly is stupid, but that's my opinion.

The problem is that Christians like myself say that ours is a religion and teach it as such, where as Evolutionists say theirs is FACT, despite the total lack of proof which means that technically evolution is a religion as well, and teach it at every possible opportunity as such
User avatar #85 to #76 - noblexfenrir (10/25/2013) [-]
Except...no.

Evolution is a proven scientific fact, it is a theory in the sense that we have massive amounts of evidence and proof of it occurring. We even see it happening in our daily lives today.

To say evolution doesn't occur is to be completely and willingly ignorant to the findings of the scientific community, to reinforce this with the idea that you are asking for more evidence from a proven theory, yet require no evidence outside of faith for a god, is just being intellectually foolish and pathetically hypocritical.

Why are people bashing agnostics? They (including me) just don't know. If it can't be definitively proven either way then we will never actually know, so in my opinion the best thing to do is just admit that you have no idea what's true. There could be no god, or there could be a god who designed existence in a way that seemed like he had done nothing. I remember a quote from futurama saying "When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all." That makes sense to me, but i still don't know so I'm just gonna sit here on my agnostic fence and watch you guys yell at eachother.

Because agnosticism isn't a position of belief, it's a position of knowledge.

Basically put, if you are not a theist, you are an atheist. Because atheism is not claiming god doesn't exist, only that the evidence for the claim he does is insufficient.

So I see a number of comments bashing agnostics, but I don't really see why. There is no evidence one way or the other. If you think you have evidence for one side, please, feel free to share it.

Holy **** this post is stupid.

The burden of proof belongs to whoever makes the assertion that something is true. Until that burden of proof is met with sufficient evidence, it is not logical to assume that the assertion is true. This does not mean that the assertion is untrue, but rather that his has not been proven to be true. In order for Christians to prove that their beliefs are accurate, they must be able to successfully disprove any opposing evidence and they must also be able to provide evidence that cannot be dis-proven. It is not enough to simply say, "oh well you can't prove me wrong so we are on equal ground" because that is not true. You made an assertion, you could not prove it, and you also could not disprove opposing evidence. ( Evolution, Fossil Records, Carbon Dating, ect...) Look at how the legal system works. It may help if you have a good explanation when you are being charged with something, but as long as the prosecutor is unable to prove that you are guilty, the court has no choice but to assume you are innocent. If you make an assertion that god does not exist, then yoiu are even ground, but when it comes to simply defending your lack of belief, you win as long as the Christians are unable to prove themselves right, no matter how bad your argument is, because they possess the burden of proof.

That's the problem. There is nothing wrong with everybody trying to live according to their own moral code as long as it is a good moral code, but you cant derive good morals from the bible and that's what people do. Sure, some things it says are fine, but many are not. Religion, at least the ones that exist today are negative on society.

I have decided, after a while of debating it, that I really don't care anymore.
No one will ever prove that God does / doesn't exist, so I think we should just stop ******* worrying about it so much and try to enjoy our lives.

well technically there is proof he doesn't, everything that we have from before about 4000 years ago i.e. fossils basically disproves the bible, so i guess Christianity more than god but close enough for me
User avatar #119 to #95 - noblexfenrir (10/25/2013) [-]
Well it disproves the story of a worldwide flood, the 7 day creation story, basically the entire biblical idea of genealogy. Those are just a few examples. Science has shown many other stories to be false such as the parting of the red sea, I believe archaeology and historians have a good case against the exodus even occurring at all.

Things such as that I'm guessing.
