you know i have never seen a proper argument made by an atheist as to why god is not real that doesn't involve emotional bullshit
please try and give me a logical reason why god doesn't exist
protip: you can't
Atheists think they have it all figured out, when they, in reality, only scratch the surface of science and philosophy.
The only kind of god they can attacks is a "clown god", an athropolgic god figure.
Why do you need god? What function does he serve in your life?
No one needs god, because god is a safety blanket. It might make you feel better at night, because you think the blanket will protect you, but the reality is that it's just a blanket. We grow as people by putting that blanket away and facing reality head-on. If you want to hide under your blanket and pretend everything will be ok, go for it, it's your life. But it denies the reality of the world we live in. Everything doesn't turn out ok, and it's scary to think that there isn't an ultimate guarantee of happiness at the end of the road. But it makes life that much more precious to us, and in the end, I'll look back on life proud that I took on the world for what it was, instead of what I wanted it to be.
You can't prove negatives due to the moving the goalposts fallacy. If I say "God does not exist because A" All you need to do to refute me is say "Oh, that's easy: God is not affected by A"
It's like little kids playing make-believe
"I stabbed you"
"No you didn't, I was wearing knife proof armor"
The onus is therefore on the claimant, not the one who chooses not to believe him.
except the typical atheist is usually a highly educated person with a masters degree or Phd.
Most teenagers are forced into religion by their parents.
"The stories and information posted here are autistic works of fiction and falsehood.
Only a fool would take anything posted here as fact."
We already know material isn't all that there is.
Your conciousness. It's not a material thing. Neurological processes and hormonal processes are. They have some connection, but there is no measurements for conciousnes.
True that consciousness is not a completely material process, but it IS however a completely physical process. Your mind cannot exist without your brain, and is carried out completely by a series of firing neurons.
op really isn't planning on quitting with this bullshit anytime soon
pic very fucking related
you know i have never seen a proper definition made by an theist as to what god is that doesn't involve emotional bullshit
please try and give me a logical definition of god
protip: you can't
that's the point of this bait
its quite genius when you think about it
Consciousness can be interrupted with a bump to the head, it can be altered with various chemicals, it can be removed via damaging certain parts of the brain, of course physics can affect consciousness.
There is no indication that any god had anything to do with the founding of any major religion.
At one point some smart people realized that humans have the ability to believe in abstract concepts rather than just real things, and they used it to create jobs that required no manual labor. Sitting around a fire getting stoned beats sticking pointy things in a mammoth.
There are too many religions out there for one of them to have any claims to being the real deal. Why would any god just pick one group if it could have everybody?
>Can an illusion exist?
Are you fucking autistic? Of course illusions exist. When it's hot outside, and you're driving on the road, sometimes it looks like there's water covering the road when there isn't any.
Consciousness is no different, when you consider the evidence that things so integral to our identity can be altered by physical damage to the brain. For example, damage to the Temporal Lobe can result in a total loss of someone's native accent. There is an Australian woman who began speaking with a French accent after a car accident. Phineas Gage, a railroad worker in the late 1800's, was the victim of a freak accident that resulted in an iron bar shooting straight through his head. At the time, researchers cited his survival as evidence that human memory and consciousness did not originate in the brain, but follow-up studies on his behavior and the nature of his injury ultimately led to the opposite conclusion. After the accident, Gage became ill-mannered and irreverent, described as "vulgar" by those who had known him before. His skull has been posthumously studied, and it appears that the bar passed through areas of the brain associated with language, emotions, and unconscious behaviors (such as manners and etiquette).
>tl;dr: Your concept of consciousness is an illusion.
see burden of proof. there is literally nothing to argue about until this is addressed.
both sides look gay in OPs image.
I don't understand the comparison you're trying to make here. The higgs is a theoretical physical entity. God is a proposed non-physical being or meta-being. There's no comparison to be made.
Autistic is not a slur, use idiot or stupid.
What you are talking about are perceptions. The perceptions are different from reality.
The images you see are not reality either.
Everything you precieve is an illusion then.
Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Crom is your god, Crom and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth, anon. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, anon. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.
While I can't give you any proof that A god doesn't exist, I can provide proof that the Christian God doesn't exist.
God is infallible according to the Bible. Therefore he can never be beaten or defeated. Now, all you have to do is pray, and say "God in heaven...the game" God has now lost the game. Therefore god is fallible.
For thousands of years, people believed god is in heaven.
Astronauts didn't find god in heaven.
God doesn't exist even if christianfags try to find excuses like 'heaven is a magical place'. No, the bible meant the sky. It is not meant symbolic like every believer tries to convince the people.
>What you are talking about are perceptions. The perceptions are different from reality.
No, I am talking about how someone quite literally became a different person overnight. That is not just a perception, that is a damaged brain resulting in an altered consciousness. Drugs do similar things, especially psychedelics. Look up the damn research, faggot. It's all there, and any reasonable person would be capable of understanding that.
how can this exact same bait work so many fucking times
So you want me to become religious fine will do.
you don't have any nitrate fertilizer and diesel you could lend me it would be the christian thing to do
for a poor Muslim like me
I prefer to attack someone on their own level. How do I convince someone that they're wrong about consciousness being affected by reality if my main conjecture is that it doesn't exist in the first place. It just reinforces his position of "Consciousness cannot be affected by mere physics"
you know i have never seen a proper argument made by a christian as to why the mighty Flying Tea-Cup is not real that doesn't involve emotional bullshit
please try and give me a logical reason why the flying Tea-Cup doesn't exist
protip: you can't
Nice bait, but I'ma respond anyway
>an all-powerful entity claims to be in total control of the universe
>doesn't provide even a single piece of actual evidence of the fact
or the alternative
>things just happen, what the hell.
Hold on, I think we're getting mixed up. I'm writing the long-ass replies.
That being said, we're on the same page here. >Consciousness does not exist = "consciousness is an illusion"
>I'm using their terms to demonstrate why it doesn't work
