I have a question for Atheists. How can you believe with 100% certainty that there is no God when there is no proof that he does not exist? That doesn't seem like a very logical, open minded and scientific way to view the world. It seems more like your beliefs are being dictated by your emotions and not on facts (just like religious people).

OP if you are not a troll we can have a conversation about it.

I am 100% certain the God depicted in the bible or any other religious scriptures is in fact, not real. Whether or not there is a god, I don't know. There isn't any logical evidence supporting it. But I don't think I'll be punished for not believing in him if he does exist.
>>
>>591950079

The burden of proof lies with the original claim (that there is/are a deity/several deities).
Atheists just don't see the proof and reject the claim, much like one would do with faeries and unicorns..
>>
>>591950079

There's no reason to believe in the first place except because we trusted our parents when they told our feeble minds about god.

As gentlesir Dawkins points out, the same reason you do not believe in the flying spaghetti monster, the tooth fairy, and Mohammad is the same reason atheists don't believe in god: there is no evidence and it's a silly, implausible story.

If bait, 8/10.

There is just no logical reason for a god to exist, and everytime new knowledge about our universe is found it contradicts with the idea of a god.

I dont have 100% proof there is no god, but there is just no logical reason for a god to exist.

Someone doesn't understand the chain of argument. Someone at one point submitted a claim that they thought up, that we were poofed into existence magically by a superior being, and we've not seen any proof yet. Ergo, you can disregard the argument without proof, since it was submitted without proof. If I saw proof, you bet your ass I'd be on the alahuakbar bandwagon.

You can't prove something doesn't exist, that's a logical fallacy. But let me put it to you this way.

>>
>>591951849

>if its not 100% you are suddenly agnostic

no. agnosticism is saying "there could be, i dont know". being atheist is simply not believing. its not 100% certainty for no reason. its simply not believing.

if you are born into a non-religious family oyu are not suddenly 100% certain there is no god. you just were never raised with one so dont believe. this doesnt make you agnostic suddenly.

You're right. I don't claim to speak for others, but I don't claim with 100% certainty that god does not exist. No atheist worth their salt would claim that. I could only be really certain, and it wouldn't bother me too much if theists didn't claim 100% that god exists. That's equally closed minded but in a different way.

Exactly. Which is why religious people are talking out of their ass. When someone submits an idea without evidence, it can be refuted without evidence because of the lack of evidential support.

If there is a god it is of no form that we pitiful humans can have possibly come to fathom, let alone describe in any of these pitiful anthrocentric religions. There may be a creator, but it is not the creator of Abraham or any other earthbound religion. Almost every phenomena we observe points towards chaos and entropy. Earthbound religion is not formed through the same critical thought as most logical things are subject to and hence is not worth the waste of breath in refuting. Cling to what you must, as long as you don't visit harm on others over your ideas.

Yes, mostly because China had closed its borders and the Arabic world had taken a wrong turn on the road of enlightenment and went down the road of jihad instead.

dude i believe in god but not like the bible because its been horribly butched by man

why would god make us then go to hell those were add ons by man we all go to heaven

there was a science experiment once where a lady was sealed in a vacuum and she died and they weighed her before she died and after she died and she lost like 2lbs

idk but i do believe in spirits and we all have souls that go to heaven otherwise why would we be here for?

>I have a question for Atheists. How can you believe with 100% certainty that there is no God when there is no proof that he does not exist? That doesn't seem like a very logical, open minded and scientific way to view the world.

time does not exist in the first place
the 'passing of time' is part of this universe only - not even noticeable outside of it (for God).
it's like you are in the movie, but God can just rewind it back and forward
the movie is simple, but a bit bad analogy, because it removed free will.
then you can think of it as a game server that God owns and can access all history, interact with the present, predict the future

Yeah, he's a presumptuous fag. Science isn't there to make blanket statements about what is or isn't true. It verifies hypotheses with actual observation and experimentation. There is no way to do that with God, not to mention that there is no agreed upon definition of what God actually is.

all you 'scientific' people should be kicked out in the first place
all 'progressive' idiots talking about probability (!) of alien life existence in our and other solar systems - without any data on the density of life even in the nearest surrounding.
about the probability of God's (in)existence (mostly antichristians here)
about multiple universes that cannot be disproved (oh, just like God), do not even pass the Occam's razor test, but are 'so much better' than having to say Universe was _created_ (not to mention that their multiverse must have been created as well).
Giving no fuck about the laws of physics that _rule_ everything in existence, and were created even before any matter. If they do, they talk about it in a way just to disprove need of God (like this is the first purpose of science), and they say that laws of physics can evolve, or be different in different universes. Not noticing that this is just another, more general, law of physics, and still needs (an even more advanced) Creator.
And they are even televised with this crap.

No. To humans back in caveman times, modern humans would seem like gods in the
way you are suggesting. But we aren't gods, we are just very far advanced. It seems
here that you think of the word god as something different to what I think of it as.

I think God is something that is by definition not natural. Something very advanced is,
natural, but It might not appear that way to someone less advanced.

And yet with all you're make belief so called 'evidence', you guys still try and deny Jesus, but because we as Christians believe there is more to this world than just science, we believe that the Holy Spirit resides within us, otherwise known as common sense, or a conscious, which has for thousands of years questioned the very basis of atheism, which ironically was derived from what you call a 'fictional' God. The internet has done some amazing things when it comes to communication, but it really does suck that you guys are all blinded by information you recieve and take it for granted. I myself have seen a lot of no believers come to know God, and your whole argument is so repetitive, and has been proven wrong so many times. The religion you know, isn't the religion i know, which is why its hard for you to fathom. All i can do is pray that one day your eyes might be opened for you to see the real truth.

They're slaves to their own agenda, just like religiousfaggots. If you really don't believe in any supernatural force in universe, just leave it alone and move on with your life.

We are not under any obligation to prove your god's existence, you are, since you are the one asserting that it does exist.
If there is a god that´╗┐ exists, I'm pretty sure its not the vengeful, deceitful, malevolent, sadistic, psychopathic, sexist, homophobic, bigoted, racist, intolerant, hateful, spiteful megalomaniac described in the torah, bible or the koran. God as described in those books is disgusting and warrants no serious consideration, respect or worship by anyone.

I don't exactly see how a God or a multitude of gods are necessary. It seems primitive to me to attribute portions of our reality to a God. If something can't be explained by the technology we have today, then it will be in the future.

There isn't anything wrong with people believing in a higher power for a sense of hope, or to keep their life together. Some people need something like that.

I do have a problem with people blatantly disregarding factual evidence, or shoving their religion down other people's throats, or denying civil rights to another person because of their religion, lifestyle, or beliefs.

first of all,
to be practical one must act
you cannot act in an uncertain manner
life is heavily uncertain
uncertainty can be converted into a certain action by going on the highest likely outcome
this allows us to act in this heavily uncertain world
as such, believing in things because there is not 100% proof it doesnt exist is impractical
impractical thinking is bad, for obvious reasons

second, I do believe in god, just not the traditional god
I believe that what the bible refers to as god is actually the algorithm which defines how the universe works
its the same thing physics tries to explain
in this sense god does exist, just not so human-like, and not conscious... probably
I dont understand consciousness all that well, so the last one is more speculation than the rest

see the point isn't really about existence of any creator but about all existing religions (especially the major ones: judaism, christianity, islam, hinduism) being wrong, because we know with (and this part is tricky because from a scientifc point of view we cannot say 100% but behind 99% the thick theists see their hope and chance, so lets say) nearly 100% certainty that evolution happened. What "gave" life to Earth doesn't really matter because after that nothing interfered with the natural process -> believing in some sort of a god is understandable, but following any religion is stupid since a man cannot know him and those claims in so called holy books are fake.

Hope this helps. (if you are a theist you may want to read it slowly and even more than once)

It doesn't matter if God exists, since the point of religion isn't scientific truth, it's community and moral guidance. That said, I think highly organized religion is a piece of garbage.

Atheism is not a religion, and I hate having to point out that I am an atheist in a discussion like this. You shouldn't have to but the only reason people do is obviously to distinguish themselves from theists. That is why It is not the same as religion.

>Don't speak about it, just live freely. Atheists can't do that shit, do they?

Apparently neither can you seeing as you are currently discussing it on the internet.

And so we should be, because like it or not, your beliefs are a major part of being human. It's natural to discuss it.

Look, we don't care whether God or Gods exist or not. What we don't want is some pricks telling us they are in direct communication with him/them and transmit orders...
If I only kept one sentence about the religious teaching I got, it is : God will recognize his own.
And with that, if I'm mistaken in my lack of faith, I'll still be OK, not like the faggots, biggots, who are a shame to their faiths most of the time.
How many death in name of God? You are illogical, if you believe you should start behaving.

For the last fucking time i will answer to you halfbrains.

The only way to live free is free of all that bullshit. Whether it's religion or atheism. They're both methods of manipulation. You don't need to tip fedora or pray to be free. You can just be free from all that stuff and do your own fucking thing. All i can see that atheists like to whine on TV and speak about the same fucking thing over and over again. Who gives a bloody fuck about that? You said that god doesn't exist, leave it. But nooo, we need to fucking talk about it all the time. All Gods that earth has seen throught the ages, weren't really gods, they were advanced races. So instead of wasting time on all that bullshit, we should start pursuing them in space. But no, it's better to fight with each other like children and pretend everything is okay.

I'm looking for the sources and I don't seem to see any.
In Britain the estimated population of Muslims that identify as Muslim and bothered to say as much in the 2011 Census (which is the most recent set of information on a national level on this) was 8.9% up from 4.5% in 2001.

Curious why it's identified as so low just 1 year before hand? And what counts as 'Public's answer'? I don't remember being asked to give my estimation and I'm fairly sure I'm a member of the public...
