Is "God" possible?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Chris Nov 22. 32 Replies

One of the things that has been on my mind... I'm sure this has been examined by some atheists somewhere, but I haven't run into it (I don't do much reading).  It's just a bit more explicit in my…Continue

so, I grew up Jewish and although now an atheist, am not particularly steeped in knowledge of Christianity or concerns about it.  With that said, once in awhile I wonder, if Jesus even existed, who…Continue

Hi - a few weeks ago there was a discussion on a atheistnexus.org forum that touched on some aspects of cosmology and I guess cosmogony and a few things came up: 1) First, it was clear that some of…Continue

"An even more basic question regarding those 40 days and nights with the devil is: who witnessed it?  Did Jesus relate his experience to someone else?  If so, who was this person?  If not, How Do We Know It Really Happened?!? …"

"The thing about all gods, Yahweh included, is that they are so uncaring and so uninvolved in the day-to-day of humankind that their behavior is indistinguishable from Something That Doesn't Exist ... whereupon Occam's Razor slices any…"

Bruce Carroll replied to jlaz's discussion Is "God" possible?
"I can imagine an all-powerful, all-knowing god IF that god is uncaring. Or at least uncaring about our tiny corner of The Milky Way. To say such a being is likely is another thing. Lack of understanding does not indicate (or even suggest) a god.…"

"I went to Holyoke Catholic High School for four years (1964-1968) and heard similar lines from the teachers. Imagining a universe operating on its own without God was to commit the sin of doubt."

"God exists in the mind of the beholder. I used to think it was a collective mind. As I learn more about religiounist I understand god is in their personal mind. In a way belief in god should be viewed as a form of psycosis."

"A biography of Jesus. How would I handle that? How would I write about his 40 days and 40 nights in the desert? What does that mean? How do we explain that the Devil took him into a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world? It must…"
