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.

How can we account for the transformation?

Open minded instead of right minded and next metaphor?


I suppose this is different for everybody, but for me anyway, if I had to pick one thing that I gained going from theism to atheism it would be learning to know when I don't know something.

So for me asserting that I know for certain that we are not living in a matrix w god as t programer, or knowing that I know a hiding god does not exist would largly be defeating t entire point of learning not to assert things for which thete is insufficient evidence.

Now that you bring it up, I think I would have to put myself in the 99.9% category. A proof that god doesn't exist is probably just as impossible as a proof that she does. If the .01% turned out somehow to be correct, (and really that's something we could never know) my take is it would have to be some sort of pantheism wherein the entire physical universe, including all of us, is god's body. If there is some sort of god (and I AM 100% sure it's not the great freudian daddy in the sky, looking like an aging Republican, sitting there with his adding machine to see how much we all contribute on Sunday morning.) the universe is something she IS, not something she MADE for us to trash. Agnostic v. atheist - whatever label is applied doesn't really matter. What matters is we don't fall for the fairy tales. And whatever is or isn't out there sure as hell didn't write a book!

She could even be gay!


Probably why the catholics don't like girls.

She might even be FABULOUS!  [ROFLMAO!!!]

You think she is less than he, or gay shoud burn in hell????

The New Testament god is most likely male; he knocked up a mortal woman.

Well, you're assuming a "virgin birth" requires male penetration, which of course leads to further questions . . . 

Also not very original; there were various gods prior to JC who achieved birth on earth sans sex, by hook or by crook, nudge nudge wink wink. They didn't have modern toilet seats then either, so this is the deepest of mysteries!

How about this for size?

We can not be utterly certain of the non-existence of any insane and contrived story so who gives a fuck if it there is some incalculable allowance for its coincidence with the story?
