Evidence for the existence of God
RE: Evidence for the existence of God

Evidence for the type of claim you're making must be testable, verifiable and reproducible.

If you've got some, please produce it. If not, quit whining at us because we won't accept your bullshit as anything other than what it is.
"Crooked Warden, Nameless Thirteenth, Thiefwatcher, Benefactor, Father of Necessary Pretexts, I will fear no darkness for the night is yours, Your night is my cloak, my shield, my escape from those who hunt to feed the noose. I will fear no evil, for you have made the night my friend.

Bless the Benefactor, Peace and profit to his children."

From the book "Red Seas Under Red Skies" by Scott Lynch

RE: Evidence for the existence of God
I'll put it this way.

In the story, the Judeo-xtian god made a big deal out of stepping from behind the curtain, on many occasion; often in a very showbiz way. It appeared and spoke to Adam and Eve, parted the Reed Sea, appeared directly to Moses, wrestled with Jacob, and so on. Even when its deadbeat son popped up, a booming voice from the sky bigged him up in front of witnesses.

Let's see some of that. It'd be a start, at least.

And all I asked for was a lamb. What the hell is wrong with me?

I blame the dogs.

Has a believer demonstrated the existence of god yet in this thread?

I'm gonna guess no. Yes, I should read all the posts, but if it's anything like all the rest before this one, I feel quite confident that God hasn't finally appeared on page 4 to let me know of his holy fucking awesomeness.

Why does the most significant, powerful, knowledgable and able being need your help just to get us to notice it?

I'm giving it a load of characteristics there that you haven't stated, but I assume that's what you'd say if you did try and define it. Feel free to correct me.

Assuming again that it had some hand in my creation, why has it given me these blinders that make its very existence (particularly the biblical God) seem not just unlikely but farcical? Seems like God needs to take a good long look at itself before blaming us for his own failures.

And more importantly... why should I give a shit? You haven't covered this yet. I'm also an apatheist, meaning I don't care whether "God" exists or not. If I found out it did, it would make no difference to me. If it wants to interact with me, I assume it has my details.
Feel free to send me a private message.

The strange thing is as soon as Moses left the room, the people who had supposedly received direct evidence that there was a god and it was Yahweh, started to believe in another god that had not shown itself etc leading Moses to massacre thousands of them.



Opinions are like arseholes.
Once somethings firmly in there its very hard to dislodge.
