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).

athiests don't claim there is no god. they just disbelieve any god claims that are thrown their way.

agnosticism isnt a belief system either. you can't believe "I don't know".

Why not? I actually don't know if there is a God or not. Are you saying you know there isn't a God?

>>606868762
belief is binary. you either believe in something, or don't. You can't choose belief.

Knowledge on the other hand, can be chosen. I don't believe in any god claim, while not knowing the truth.

I don't claim to know anything for certain.

gnosticism/agnosticism arent mutually exclusive to atheism/theism - they address different questions. one addresses knowledge, the other belief. you can pick one of either.

most christians i know are agnostic christians. they believe in a higher power but dont know. fundies are gnostic, and claim to know as well as believe. and those motherfuckers are crazy

OK, so maybe, big maybe, there is some superior being out there. Fine. Go nuts.

What I can say, with 100% certainty, is that all available data shows that the bible, the creation myth, all that shit? That's all flat out crap.

So what fucking difference does it make? I may not be able to say "OK, the Big Bang definitively wasn't caused by a higher intelligence". But are you telling ME that despite the overwhelming evidence contrary to the Christian mythology that you believe 100% in your particular flavor of bullshit?

I don't believe with 100% certainty that there isn't a god, nothing is ever 100%. I know I could be wrong. I didn't choose not to believe in God, I just haven't been able to bring myself to believe in one since I was 7, the same way that people don't choose to believe in god, they just do. It's not like I'm a fucking fedora-wearing neckbeard, I like religion, I just don' believe in God., I know that my belief relies on faith that I'm right, just like religion.
So, your assumption that Atheists are 100% certain is wrong. There are obviously some, but they are dogmatic dicks who ignor the fact that nothing is ever 100% certain

Occam's razor shaves off god anyways. It is more simple for a stretch of space we call the universe to have expanded from a singularity, than a sky daddy making everyone from dirt, since all science backs the Big Bang theory, and none does with god, if any of that changes, i am sure that all atheists would start believing in god, but there is literally no evidence that it exists.

I don't.

Atheist and Agnostic are not mutually exclusive terms.

I'm an atheist because I do not believe in god.

I'm an agnostic because I believe it cannot be known with certainty.

I believe there may be a divine deity watching over us but my question to Christians, is God good? He continues to let his people, that he is supposed to protect, suffer. He let's children die of starvation every single day and what does God do? He let's his servants sexually abuse children. Having to grovel and sacrifice your life into service for some asshole that just fucks the human race over and over again is pathetic and ilillogical.
>inb4 hur dur it was Adam and eve's fault
No it fucking wasn't, God created Adam and eve in HIS OWN image obviously he should know they're gonna be curious little shits and he should have TOLD them the risks involved with taking the Fruit. God doesn't even give them a second chance, "We'll they ate my fucking snack even though I am a fucking god, guess I'm just gonna have to make their existance a fucking nightmare forever".

Because that is not sound reasoning to believe in something. Everything that exists leaves evidence of its existence.
People would of discovered evolution regardless of Darwin ever lived or not. People would of discovered that we are on a planet orbiting the sun wether or not Galileo ever lived.
Would you ever discover God if nobody ever heard of him? No you wouldn't because nothing in your experience of life would ever lead you to believe there was a God, you would go for eternity without even thinking about it because God isn't real. You only believe it because other people said it's real.

isn't it like that? and in that case, atheists can be agnostics, right?

Op, how can you use the term "he" when referring to God? There is no proof that it is a he or she or even a potato. Why don't you refer to God as just God? Stop being a little twat and believe whatever the fuck you want, keep it to yourself though retard.

Atheists do not "believe" there is no god, they choose to not follow an idea blindly. Basically, they refuse to acknowledge God(s) due to the horrible quality and lack of "evidence" from "faiths and scripture". Atheists are more than willing to accept the existence of a God, it's just that so far there is a stupid amount of evidence, reason and logic which convinces them not to.
>>
>>606877802

That's logic I will never understand. 'Life is meaningless, so I might as well kill myself'. Hell, I don't enjoy every day I am alive, but there sure are a lot of days I love being alive. Why would I ever need any more reason to live than that?

god is suppose to be all powerful, more powerful then you. he created everything.

to state he doesn't exist is by far a more extraordinary claim. im sure most would agree with this therefore by bringing occams razor into this you have successfully fucked yourself.

also what is ad hoc hypothesis you philistine.
>>
>>606878346
Yes. Yes, it is. As I said before, you've made a claim of the outrageous, no one had your God to deny the existence of until your kind created him. Prove he exist.
>>
what OP fails to realize is that in a world of science the burden of proof lies on the person making the POSITIVE claim.

it's impossible to prove something doesn't exist. No evidence is the same as evidence of nothing. Or to put it another way, the absence of evidence IS the evidence of absence.

So falling short of providing evidence of the positive claim, the safest scientific conclusion is that the object of said claim does not exist. Of course science also concedes that if positive evidence is provided then the conclusion may change with careful scrutiny.
>>
>>606868012
God is an unfalsifiable hypothesis, therefore it's existence cannot be proven or disproven. I think most atheists will acknowledge that in a universe of infinite possibilities a God could exist, it's just that based on our knowledge of the universe as we know it today, we see no evidence of it.
>>
>>606878555

You can't prove he exist. You can't prove he doesn't. That's why Agnostic is the most logical and rational position to be.

>>606878676
Atheism is not a disbelief in gods or a denial of gods; it is a lack of belief in gods. Older dictionaries define atheism as "a belief that there is no God."
>>
>>606878666
Agnostics are atheists and believers as well. Either you don't know and essentially don't care, or you don't know and live as if there might be. There literally is no in between. You either believe in something, or you don't. It's that simple.
>>
>>606878666
You ignore my question and deflect. To claim something exist, you must prove it exist.

>>
>>606868012
You do realize that in agnosticism people still either believe in the existence of a deity or not. But they just don't take out the possibility of them being wrong. It all depends on where you put the burden of proof. Does the existence of a god need to be proven or dis-proven. In the end it still doesn't matter because being agnostic or atheistic or theistic still makes you live by rules others created for you in order for you to live your life a certain way. Then again if religious believes don't make you do that society will just force you to comply. What a nice world of free will and real choices do we live in don't we?

I believe without a doubt that there is no God, goddess, etc, that no religion on earth is right, I don't believe prayers go anywhere, nor do I belive in dragons or angels, I don't believe there is a god, especially not one in the sense that religious people believe. Being agnostic implies that you could believe in a god, in a religious sense, some guy up in wherever they decided they are, now that we've explored the skies. That decides whether your naughty or nice. I believe it's completely irrational to even remotely accept that as a possibility. Religion is just a filler for things we don't know, which used to be many, many things, but not anymore, we've refuted their evidence time and time again

I think you have the wrong idea what atheism is. MOST atheists are agnostic athiests, which means that they don't believe in a god but don't believe that the existence of one can be proven or disproven. I would fall into that catagory. There are also Gnostic Athiests that are 100% sure that there isn't a god. But I must ask, why should agnostics argue with atheists? Neither believe in talking snakes or a man getting swallowed by a whale so why can't we just get along?

Agreed. We've studied the bible in all its translations and we've found it to be lacking in logic and fact. Even if by some stretch it was true, it's riddled with contradictions and loopholes.

all you're doing is digging yourself deeper.

conventional science is conventional for a reason. It works.

Keep thinking one can prove a negative claim. It literally cant be done.

Insisting there could be evidence of a negative claim presupposes the existence of the claim, or of its prior existence. If something never existed there could be no evidence for it thus making it impossible to prove.

Theists - Usually only theists because their parents are, regardless of why they are religious they're most of the time your average citizen, just trying to life their life as well as they can.

Atheists - Most of these are teenagers that are going through the "Im smarter than everyone" phase, not counting edgy teenagers they're usually just your average citizen trying to live their life, they just don't believe in a god is all.

Agnosticism - When being an edgy teenager evolves into adulthood, these people are unable to grow out of their edgy phase and will often provoke both theists and atheists because they think they're better than them. The average agnostic is easy to recognize because they will often try to get attention one way or another. Notice how most of the time they're unhyghenic

Nobody argues over zeus or odin anymore, either

>>606869446
yeah this is wrong. gnosticism does mean knowledge, but means direct experience kinda knowing. Fundamentalists view Gnosticism as a cult.
>>
what so many theists and whiny agnostics dont get is that we WANT there to be proof one way or another.

Scientists have been looking for god for centuries, pouring through history and scanning through the observable universe and come up with bupkis in the way of finding a god.

We have taken tremendous strides in understanding the physical universe in the process of looking for god, but have we found god? no.

Does that mean that we still could find one? Sure, in an infinite universe (assuming it's infinite) its however infinitesimally possible.

But given the information we have a available and with all of our current understanding of physics and the universe, its pretty safe to conclude that such a being is impossible.

Got evidence that demonstrates otherwise? Wonderful, it's what scientists have been looking for for centuries!

you're implying that it never existed.

i think you may be wrong.

i'm implying it could have existed or still exist.

i can prove to you that god exists, i cite the bible as a source. the source is extremely integrious and has many other accounts that prove accurate when compared to other texts of its time.

this poster - is making an awfully biased comment about things that go way over his head because he speaks on a topic he knows nothing about, or cares about, but likes to think he is enlightened because he may have more things than most people have and tries not to take them for granted but in the end comes across as a douchebag anyway and the only reason people put up with him is because they're lonely.

>and so conclusion based on it's findings is there is no god

In the observable parts of universe, yep.
Science is always developing so human knowledge of universe is never perfect. Not only will we find out new stuff, we will eventually prove some to be wrong, some which we believe to know at the moment.

That's not very logical, open minded and scientific of you, OP.

> Thinking adverbs are nouns.

There's only theists (who believe in a personal god) and a-theist, or not-theists (who do not believe in a personal god). Either group can be broken down in gnostics (those who claim to know for sure) and a-gnostic (those who do not claim to know for sure).

The noun you're looking for, for the dead in the center, can't proceed from one assumption or the other, is coward.

I'm not a very good debater. So while i feel like i have a decent logical stance, i have a tough time articulating it. My ideas and position are scattered through this thread in little snippets. mostly because i don't have a planned argument to spout. I just come up with something to say on the fly and say it. Obviously this makes me look like an idiot to skilled debaters. But whatever. I'm just tossing out idea, not really trying to prove anything to anyone.

agnosticism doesn't believe "i dont know" they believe in the possibility of anything. whos to say fucking deists didnt get it right?
>>
I am agnostic.
The universe is so complicated and still so far beyond our understanding.
Our knowledge is almost less then nothing to one who might know everything.
I mean where the hell did the universe even come from...? Why do things even exist?
Imagine trying to answer those questions.
I remember as a child how in are I felt when I truly thought about it.
I can't feel that way anymore but I remember what weird places it took me too.

There are numerous biblically related artifacts in the British Museum located in London. They are breathtaking to see. Even though you may never be able to go to London, it is possible to log on to the museum website (www.thebritishmuseum.ac.uk) and see pictures of the artifacts. Here is a short list of some of the more important treasures of antiquity:

The Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III (858-824 B.C.) shows Jehu, king of Israel, bowing before the Assyrian king. This is the only known picture of an Israelite king.
Tablets from the time of Tiglath-Pileser (744-727 B.C.) state that he received tribute from Jehoahaz of Judah. This is the full name of Ahaz (2 Kings 16:7).
A wonderfully detailed limestone relief from Sennacherib’s palace at Nineveh shows the siege of Lachish.
One of the most important is the cylinder of Nabonidus (555-539 B.C.). He was the last ruler of the Neo-Babylonian Empire. This stele proves that his son Belshazzar was co-regent with him (Daniel 5; 7:1; 8:1). Scholars previously scoffed at Belshazzar’s existence.

the point of the post went over your head, clearly.

He's simply saying that they are both equal parts fiction.

The story of the messiah is an anecdotal account of several different men that lived in that time across the middle-east.

Monty Python's life of Brian is closer to the truth than you'd think.

You are literally retarded, LITERALLY, if you think it's possible that "souls" and "afterlives" exist. Literally.
>>
>>606885148
If that was your post, I somewhat agree with you.
However, when you say "its pretty safe to conclude that such a being is impossible", that may be true, but safe to conclude ideas have been disproved in the past. While I agree that at this point humanity can't prove the existence of God, I think that doesn't prove he doesn't exist either. There was a point in history when we couldn't prove existence of atoms, sound waves or gravity, but eventually we did. Who is to say we won't prove God at some point aswell?

Life doesn't mean anything. You're no more significant than a rock. When you die you're dead. Anyone who disputes this is literally retarded.

Ofc that goes both ways, maybe there will be a definite proof God doesn't exist at some point.

Thats literally the only way we have been able to expand and improve our understanding of universe though.

We build on our knowledge based on new observations and compare them to old conclusions we've drawn from past observations. Those conclusions can be modified if the new observations work in a predictable and reproducible way.

Unless someone finds a way to achieve total understanding with a single piece of data, there is no other way to build our understanding of the universe.

Of course we've had bad ideas or wrong ideas in the past. Thats an unfortunate side effect of early science. We could only work with what we had at the time. Now that our tools have improved, so then has our ability to observe and understand those observations.

We cant help but work with the tools and data we have and draw conclusions based on them.

In the future, yes we might find something we may observe and conclude to be a "god" by whatever definition.

But based on our current model of what the universe is made of and what the observable physical laws are, we can safely conclude that such a being as is described as "god" doesn't/cant exist.

I don't think you read the question properly. Agnostics are not just people on the fence, it's a typical belief that shows you cannot denounce a deity due to the fact that they are impossible to to prove wrong, nor prove right. The majority of Agnostics believe that Science and all physical forms of life are real, but however there is a possibility (and proof) for a supernatural factor to be accounted for as well.
