yes, not to slight the OP's question... but I think this is a better one.
to answer the question...
I cant be 100% sure there is no god... But I 100% DO NOT BELIEVE there is a god... if that makes any sense.
I cant be 100% sure there is no god... But I 100% DO NOT BELIEVE there is a god... if that makes any sense.The second sentence nullifies your first and only proves the point of the concept being of pure opinion and title of opinion. Right to the point where either existence and everything is GOD, or are GODs, or that there are no GOD's at all. It's entirely a moot and useless discussion. May as well argue favorite colors out of the billions of colors one can choose from
Are you 100% confident there is a cockroach? (in my home)
I have seen one, and I have seen droppings.
Are you 100% confident there is no cockroach?
I have never seen one, anywhere, nor have I seen droppings.
To prove there is no cockroach I would have to open up all the walls, all the drawers and cabinets, look along all the pipes and in every nook and cranny, all at the same time. I cannot prove a negative.
Are you 100% confident there is a god?
If “yes” then prove it.
If “no” then prove it.
Are you 100% confident there is no god?
If “yes” then prove it.
If “no” then prove it .
I have never seen, heard, smelled, tasted, felt with my tissue or felt with my heart and gut, a god. I have seen no evidence of a god. I cannot prove a negative
I do not need to do experiments in Miami to know that I am not there, when I already know I am in Toledo. This proving a negative thing is a fallacy. That there is no MCT (this MCT) in Miami is a negative statement that I can both prove and that I do not need to prove to have contextual valid and certain knowledge that I am not there, if I know other things, which I do. The same way with god, I know he cannot exist because I know about identity, causality, reason and logic. I do not need to do extra experiements. I do not need additional proof. And neither should you.
If I knew that God exists (as you know you exist), that God is in Mexico getting ready for the Day of the Dead (as you know you are in Toledo, then I could prove that God isn't in Western Finland training reindeer (as you can prove you aren't in Miami).
No. When our molecules are broken down after death, we will not be living on as anything. Our molecules come from stars, but our molecules need a particular configuration to be life. Life ends at death. You should keep in mind that metaphor is not a sufficient source of knowledge. You cannot validly say we will live on as star-dust because it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Life stops at death. There is no living on in metaphors.
