I wanted to put this question out there to see how strongly everyone feels on this subject. Being that most of us trust in scientific fact and reasoning, I was wondering if everyone is absolutely, undeniably, 100% sure that a god doesn't exist.  I personally take into account that there is no proof of any cosmic creator so therefore I am about 99.9999% sure that there is no god. However we all agree that science is an ever evolving field and I don't think that there will ever be any proof to support the existence of a supreme being, but I can't be 100% sure until there is concrete proof against one. I would like to know what all of your thoughts on this.

Right-e-o! Damn, I thought I fooled you with my quantum phantasmagoria and gobbledy-gook.

Now that you know that I know perhaps we can have a real conversation.

Are you into quantum phantasmagoria and gobbledy-gook? Why? 

Cue theramin. *waves hands in a gyrating fashion*

I like your reasoning. I have a theory of natural meaning, purpose, causality. A honey bee gets up in the morning, rubs its hands together and thinks, "where's the food?" or "where's the water?" or "where's the sex?" and flies away sticking his proboscis into every flower it can find, in the process,  finding food and water and pollinating flora all around it. He also finds a mate now and then. That is the natural theory of meaning ...

Erm, I believe that honeybees (at least the workers who go out foraging) are female. As usual the women are doing all the work while the males sit at home making noise.

Oh, I didn't know that!

Worker bees are all female and they never have sex; only queens and drones get to do that. Well, plus a bee pollinating fauna would be very impressive indeed, and probably extremely irritating.

Apart from that, I take your point, Joan. The meaning of life is propagation. Some animals have big enough brains to get bored with just that, so they make up their own stuff to do.

And some of them make up religions.

Jason, I am so glad you corrected my errors; no one benefits by faulty information. I am also glad you understand what I was trying to convey. I especially like the way you worded human being's having brains and making "up their own stuff to do". Right again. 

Oh! I didn't realize until just now that I used the word "fauna"!  Yikes! now every  one knows how stupid I am. I can just imagine a bee pollinating a bull. 

Jason, you are a jewel!

The Bee that could.....Reminds of that Frank Sinatra song High Hopes:

Next time you're found, with your chin on the ground
There a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time you're gettin' low
'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

When troubles call, and your back's to the wall
There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

Once there was a silly old ram
Thought he'd punch a hole in a dam
No one could make that ram, scram
He kept buttin' that dam

but he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time you're feelin' bad
'stead of feelin' sad
Just remember that ram
Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

All problems just a toy balloon
They'll be bursted soon
They're just bound to go pop

Oops there goes another problem kerplop
Oops, there goes another problem kerplop
Oops, there goes another problem kerplop
Kerplop!

Jon T Wonderful! And it is so great when I am proved to be wrong and have a chance to come back with more knowledge and understanding. Thanks everyone, my problems just got smaller... Oops, there goes another problem.
